The Flower Bed

Usually, there's no time to dwell on the flower bed. A few years ago, we put in some lavendar, some clematis, etc. We were hoping for the strongest willed plant to take over. However, they have all been quite respectful of each other. Having a holiday weekend, I decided to take matters into my own hands and plant a few annuals as well.

So we put in a dozen cosmos -- how dainty - as well as two dozen verbena - to me they looked like Sweet William, my favorite.

Then my attention turned to the vegetable garden. It was just over a month ago that it all went in. And it's all doing splendidly. The romaine is ROBUST and will make a remarkable salad in a week or two...


The blueberries are looking so hopeful:


The dill has planted itself, and is flourishing:

The peas are trying to tie their tendrils to the twine waiting to hold their weight:


And the leaf lettuce is holding it's own in this clay we have for soil, and overwhelming the other grasses...


There is so much to be thankful for. Even the rosemary is coming up in the pot!


I guess a few more weeks and we'll see where we really stand. But for right now, we are so thankful for all of God's provision!!!
