Settled in for the winter

Calla lilies and a mini pot with chive seeds

Moved my indoor plant to the work table (no, I don't remember what it's called other than "thing you probably will not kill")

The pots are planted!

Amaryllis saved from last year in the individual pots, one long pot of amaryllis, one long pot of paperwhites, and one big round tub of paperwhites. There are some iris bulbs in there, but I don't know if they'll grow.

Ivy, polka dot plants, and pansies seedlings squished to the end.

My garden dream

My dream is to make my garden space look like Monet's gardens at Giverny. Or, at least, Lena Anderson's pictures of them in Linnea in Monet's Garden. They probably don't look like that in real life. But I love the images of nasturtiums spilling out across the gravel path. Someday I have dreams of expanding the garden across the lawn, but I don't know how my landlord will feel about that.

Zinnias take 2

Ok, apparently I just needed to wait and let them bloom a little more! They are still small, but they filled out nicely.

Yes, I know these are not zinnias.

I am...disappointed. Somehow I thought they'd be a LOT bigger. I guess maybe it will look better when more bloom?

Gardens in August

My green world

I finally convinced the morning glories to weave across my window. I love being all green inside.

Gardening plans

I intend to use my vacation at the end of September to lay out another garden plot. I have ordered more bulbs. Decisions must be made.
This is the current layout. Pots, two garden plots, and a vast array of nasturtiums and morning glories to the left. Those are my windows. A small section of pots to the right (the faucet is back in the that corner)

Now, I could continue to extend the gardens out to the left, in front of my windows. They could surround the hummingbird feeder and I would be able to see them out the windows.


On the other hand, this side is rather bare and unbalanced. But I'm not really interested in planting things around someone else's window.

End of July; the garden

My black-eyed susan vine has finally flowered

Where do the slugs keep coming from?

The zinnias have sprouted

Lots of buds on my daisy thing. I can't remember what it's called.

I finally got a heavenly blue morning glory!

and lots of pink ones

A GIANT morning glory. I'm a little scared of it.

Rose buds!
