Oh hello friends! I was just hanging out here on our cat tree waiting to take you on today's garden stroll. The garden is starting to wind down a bit as the days get shorter. But there are still some lovely things happening out there!We're delighted that this Nasturtium turned out to be the dark orange color that it is. Mom had it in a hanging basket last year but it was the usual orange color It dropped some seeds in our carport next to our neighbor's retaining wall. We like it!
The GOPHER has eaten two or three of the Borage plants, but there are still a couple left in the garden. We can see why another name for them is Star Flower!
The Cosmos continue to thrive. In fact, we have several plants that haven't even begun to bloom yet.
Mom never did get around to trimming the pink Petunias. Maybe tomorrow...
More Lupine is blooming! We like these a lot.
We have Poppies blooming! Mom threw seeds all over the place and now we have surprise plants coming up everywhere. It's fun!
The pink flowers way in the back of this photo (behind the Zinnias and the Batchelor Buttons) are VALERIAN!!! It grows like a weed here in this part of California. Mom needs to read up on how to harvest and dry the roots for us.
Check out these Cosmos! They are as tall as SUNFLOWERZILLA! They have buds on them and hopefully will bloom for next week's garden post.
Last but certainly not least, SUNFLOWERZILLA!! Ready to move on to her next phase, providing food for the birds and the squirrels, and also some seeds to plant in next year's garden.
We hope you enjoyed today's garden stroll. Don't forget to visit our other gardening friends and fellow members of the Society of Feline Gardeners!
