Tuesday Tidings

With the recent pleasant temperatures,
I haven't been spending much time inside.
Here are a few things happening around the garden.

Beautyberry leaves are lush,
but no luscious purple berries so far!

Kanchloe bouncing back after a severe pruning.

Cosmos are at six feet and counting!

This mystery plant popped up in a hanging basket.

The shade of blue is lovely.

Here's the seed pod.
More of these will be started.

Another mystery plant.

Pine straw mulch just waiting to be distributed
throughout the back bed.

Ah, that's better...

Peanuts got dug up this weekend.
This is the first time we tried growing them.

There were only a couple of handfuls.
Enough to make some homemade peanut butter.

This is how several of the shoots looked when
they were pulled out of the ground.
It's all a learning process.


Native cotton plant

Lemons are finally turning yellow!

Lettuce is just getting started.

The butterfly vine is being continued
along the west side of the house.

Looks like we'll be having some monarchs
gracing our yard soon.

Hope you get to spend some
quality time outside soon!
