Some of you already know this, but my mom is a Master Gardener. She took all kinds of classes and now volunteers for our local Garden Line call center. (Master Gardener mom = free gardening advice for me) :) I'll have to take pics of her garden the next time I'm at her house and share them with y'all.
She grows the BEST tomatoes ever! She brought a basket over the other day, and just look at how many there are!
|These are called "Indigo Rose" tomatoes. And yes, they're supposed to be black. :) They are delicious!|
|Well, this is the status of my Meyer Lemon tree. It's still in a pot, and I think we need to plant it in the ground. I'm hoping to get some actual lemons this summer. :)|
|My Ageratum is still doing well. It really seems to be able to to tolerate our heat. I love it when I discover a new (to me) flower that does well in our climate.|
|Here are some potted flowers on the patio.|
|My little Rosemary is doing fine too. That Rosemary sign was one of my Mother's Day gifts from my boys. :)|
|This metal scroll piece came from Hobby Lobby. It's done pretty well for being outside. I'd love to find an outdoor lamp to keep out here too.|
|I've had this for years. My boys actually gave this to me too. I love bird themed things. Especially in the garden or outdoors. It says "Welcome Home."|
If you want to see more pics of my backyard garden, you can click HERE, and HERE. I also get a lot of emails about how I control the weeds in my flower beds. You can read about that HERE
Well, I guess that's it for now. I think I see a lot of BLT's and sliced tomatoes on the menu this week. :)
I'm joining the Cottage Garden Party
