I was fearful that after being gone for five days my garden might be a bit, well, dead. Since Central PA is doing it’s best imitation of Seattle this year, my fears were quite unfounded. I am not a big fan of all the rain we’re getting, but my flowers are simply rejoicing in it. Above is a picture of our back patio. Did you notice those sneaky white impatiens amongst all the red? It was not intentional on my part, but I like it :). Below is another picture of their glorious redness.
This purple guy below was only $11 at BJ’s and I love him. I should have snatched up more.
Impatiens seem impervious to my lack of a green thumb. I can’t seem to kill them which is why I love them. I’m not very creative when it comes to gardening (which surprises even me). But as long as they are alive, flowers look great…even lacking in creativity.
Here we have a cat lurking in my flowers. Stalking my bird feeder no doubt!
Her eyes compliment my flowers nicely, but I’d prefer she found a different yard to stalk.
My animal lovers are thrilled to have a stray come to play!
Yay! My herbs are still alive! This surprises me even more than my lack-of-a-creative-gardening-gene. I wasn’t sure they’d make it. They looked so very sad the day I planted them, but just look how proud that dill is now!
