Hello friends! Welcome to the Thursday Garden stroll. We have a lot of activity in the garden this week, the weather has finally turned more seasonal here. Let's get going!
The flower bed is coming along. We had two inches of rain last Saturday (very unusual for California in June) and it helped nudge the flowers along. We planted Zinnias, Cosmos, Poppies and Morning Glories in this bed.
Look! In this close up you can see that the Cosmos are starting to actually LOOK like Cosmos!
Our "Hot Lips" Salvia is doing well too. The hummingbirds love this flower and we love to watch the hummingbirds. It's a "win win" situation.
We had to show you our Catnip. We have it in a hanging basket and it's a good thing because we get introoder cats in our yard all the time.
Did you notice the rose at the bottom of the catnip photo? Here is a close up of it. There were two rose bushes in our yard when we moved in. Mom has maintained them, even though they are not planted in very good spots for roses. This one is SO fragrant.
Thanks for strolling with us friends! Have a pawsome Thursday!
