DH's has some things out there that I have NO idea what they are. They only bloom for a few weeks and they're gone. lol. Other stuff are the roses and Cannas. I go out in a little while and see if there are any pretty ones yet.
Jeekinz, yours are beautiful!! I LOVE the drooping ones!!

Oh my goodness! Your blooming things are BEAUTIFUL! I love cherry trees. I'm so jealous. :P All I have to grow things on is a tiny balcony. Someday I'll have a real yard...

Here's some more. Certain varieties of the lillies are blooming. The tomatoes are going great. The cages are about 3 feet tall, some of the plants are towering above them.

Please ignore the neighbors laundry











Medusa - ornamental pepper plant....cool.


The bell peppers in the foreground are just starting to gain some height.


Gargantuan tomato plants. Finally got the bug lettuce out.

Looks great Jeekins.
I am at least a full month behind you. :(
I just now FINALLY finished planting everything I started from seed, and got the last of my corn in.
I'll put up pics when DH comes back home tomorrow with da camera. The poor little tomatoes look sickly anyway.... I'll give them time to look pretty for thier close up.

Thanks fellas.

I wound up with waaay too many chile plants. Who was it that said this would happen with Burpee?

Anyway, all of my adjoining neighbors must hate the heat. So when I finally see one, I'll ask if they want any.

Can't wait to see some other gardens!

Oh Jeekinz, your lilies are just stunning! Everything else, too. You are really a talented gardener. Don't apologize to me for the neighbor's laundry - I live in Mexico! Nobody has a dryer - everyone hangs their laundry. It's actually rather colorful and almost like the festive "papel picado" banners!
