This is one of the flowers that Jacob chose, which also happens to be one of my all time favorite flowers to grow - Gerber Daisies! They do so well here and stay around even during our mild winters. I have some in the front that have never died!
Below are some flowers that have been growing continually in this spot for a couple of years now. I forget what they are, but they are wonderful. They have never stopped blooming! I wonder is this because these are the flowers planted right in front of my statue of the Blessed Virgin.
I absolutely love this addition to our garden this year. Lovely native Texas Bluebonnets! Our state flower. I have always wanted to grow Bluebonnets, but never got around to sowing any seeds. When we were out last Friday, I saw these pots of Bluebonnets for only 98 cents a piece. I couldn't resist and might have to go get a few more. These should die back and seed and keep coming up year after year.
The next one might be a bit hard to see. These are little flower seedlings. I had picked up a packet of Zinnia seeds and Cosmos seeds. We decided to throw them in this big pot together and see what happens. They are coming up already. I am so excited. I am hopeful they will make a large pot full of the mixture of the 2 flowers. I hope.
And this here is our revamped vegetable garden box. It used to be about half this wide and not as elevated off the ground. It always served us well, but I had been wanting more space to grow. And I was so inspired by Robin's vegetable garden box. This past weekend, Brian very lovingly transformed my box. It is great. I am hoping to get what I need on Friday or Saturday and get planting!!! Those weed like things in the center are not weeds. They are pineapple tops. They do grow. We've never grown one long enough to see what happens, but maybe this time. They will have to be moved, of course!
