Thursday Garden Report with Raymond

Hello friends and fellow garden lovers! Quite a bit has been going on in the garden. Mom was surprised by how much some things had grown while she was in NYC. Let's take a look!
These are some Verbena that are growing in the window box on the front porch. They were not yet blooming when Mom left on vacation. When she got home, this is what she found! (see the ceramic wormy? Our neighbor made it.)
The Hibiscus, which was also just a little pink bud when Mom left, is also blooming. Woo Hoo!


Sunflowerzilla is going to be an explosion of seeds!


A second sunflower has started coming up BIG. Not nearly as big as Sunflowerzilla, but still a nice sunflower.



The Borage (Thanks Kool Kitty Krew!) also know as a Starflower, is attracting LOT'S of bees! We are always happy to attract bees to the garden.



We'll wrap up today's garden post with a shot of the Lupine! It was yet another plant that bloomed while our Moms were in NYC. Mom didn't even notice it until she was scrubbing out the bird bath. We love Lupine!



Have a great Thursday friends! Don't forget to visit the other Feline Gardeners today.
xoxo, Raymond

  8. Your garden continues to thrive and look beautiful. Verbina is one of my all-time favourites; so many colours to choose from and it blooms for so long!

    Btw, Ben likes being vigilant instead of a worrier, so he's going with that :-)
