Gardens Are Growing!!!


My Mother's Day Garden was planted 
May 2011.


The big Butterfly Bush is part of the old garden that we added to.
Everything to the right of it is newly planted.

I planted 
Woods Purple,
 another Butterfly Bush,
a Pink Coneflower to match the other side,
2 Lavender plants
I also split the grass up to match the other end of the garden

Here is the garden now in July:


Yay!  I love it!

Here is a pic of my lilies that are growing along side of the house.


We also thought we would try growing some veggies.
When I was asked by my neighbor what I was growing, I told him I was growing milk since the need is so great with 4 kiddos ;)

My son and I tried to build a little twig fence and ran out of twigs.
However we just had our Crimson Maple trimmed, and we gained more branches to finish our little decorative fence.


Here is the veggie garden and fence today:


We have veggies starting to grow,
We have Green Peppers
Cucumbers
a Pumpkin
&
a Watermelon :)
The garden is probably too shady.
Do you think it is stunting the growth of our veggies?
We did plant near the end of May.


I love going outside and seeing the flowers in bloom!


Thanks for visiting my gardens.
