It was an absolutely perfect day today, after the rain and hail moved out of the area. The temperature was in the 70s, the sun was shining, there was a bit of a breeze, and all was well in my world. Around mid-day, I took a stroll through my gardens to see what was going on and what was coming back to life, what weeds needed to be pulled (got a bumper crop this year!), and what new seeds had sprouted in my winter sowing jugs. Here are a few, okay many, pics from my little excursion.
My winter sown jugs of tomatoes and bell peppers.
A strawberry bloom on one of the strawberry plants the DH dug out of the bed leftover from last year.
Radish seedlings poking up. I planted these last week. :>)
Found this bird's nest in our holly bush! Not sure if it's currently in use or not.
Jug eyeball! Those are self-heal sprouts in there!
A baby toad lily! I just planted these last year, 1 little plant in 4 different places in the front bed. I've already got at least 2 new sprout on each plant!
This Brazos Penstemon has doubled in size over the winter. I have a total of 6 of these and they've already started producing clumps. Yippee!
One of my May Night Salvias coming back from the dead. I was really thinking I'd lost these this winter.
Poppies! Need I say more?
John Fanick Phlox. I only had one measly little stem on this last year and already I see about 3 or 4 stems!
