Let's get right to it, shall we?
I bought a couple of the Sun Coleus for the first time this year and I really like them. I buy the shade ones every year and every year they do nothing for me. You'd think I'd learn.
This first one is in the ground and the second is in a pot.
They seem to like both places equally well.
I didn't mean to buy the orangey one, but lantana in general is earning its way into my top 10 list of annuals.
I only got one measly liatris bloom this year.
The black-eyed-Susan vine is another one that I'll definitely be buying again.
It has more than outdone itself.
A volunteer tomato came up in the ground right behind the pot and I didn't have the heart to pull it.
So now the vine is acting as the stake.
And so far, I've been able to manage the worms on 'em.
The petunia vine that was new to me this year is growin' like a weed.
The 'Black and Blue' salvia was just starting to bloom when I was out with my camera.
And last, the path along the back of the house has finally filled in.
I'm gonna do something different with the bed closest to the lawn next year.
I'm just not diggin' what's goin' on there.
But the side closest to the house is doin' okay.
The Girl's pot is there, plus a blueberry, a jasmine, the tree rose, some ferns, one cucumber from my first round of planting that the slugs didn't get, and some potted herbs.
I'd say it gets about half a day of sun.
Till about 2:00 in the summer months.
The hardy fuchsia on the right grew a ton this year.
I love it.
That's it for yard pics this week.
The Dad is off today, so I'm planning on hauling the kids somewhere so he can work on the kitchen in peace.
Another weekend...back at it.
