Garden Update in Pictures


New Lantanas (white trailing, yellow mounding) and Black and Blue Salvia. Since I took this picture I have added two more Black and Blue Salvias to balance it out.
Here's a picture of the rest of the plants I still need to put in. They include, more Lantanas, Pink Skullcap and Russian Sage. This morning I put in one Lantana and Two Skullcaps. I hope to finish the rest throughout the week, one or two a day after work.

Butter Beans and Green Beans

Hi Laura,

Wow! You have so many beautiful plants. And your Black and Blue Salvia is gorgeous! I wonder if my hummingbirds would like that. Hmmm...even if they didn't I may have to plant one just for myself. Heh.

It certainly was a pleasure to meet you at the Garden Blogger Get-Together last month. Good luck with your veggie garden. It looks pretty awesome.

Cheers,
Dawn

That's a nifty design on the cedar raised beds. Your pictures are getting me motivated to get out and tackle my garden some today.

Dawn - It was great talking to you to. I bought the salvias at Lowes. They were on sale for $3. Don't know if the sale is still going on, but worth a try. I couldn't pass them up, and bought 4:) I'm not sure about the hummingbirds, hope so.

Meredith - I purchased my first 4 beds from a company in Vermont that makes the design, mortis and tenon. A friend of mine said we could make them and helped me out. I love the ones we made, since they are 12" tall instead of the others which are 8". It makes a big difference.

I see your blog, you don't need motivation, seems you're out there every day :)
