The Garden

This was part of our garden back at the beginning of June. The Snapdraggons are second year plants. They bloomed nicely last year, but there werre only like 3 plants. Now there is a bunch, as you can see. They bloomed so nicely this year. The begonia plant at the left of the snapdraggons has now taken over in a huge way and is producing beautiful purple flowers. The snapdraggons have been since cut down. Some plants from last year have way over produced this year and while they look nice, it made our garden kind of mss-matched in places. Each year we try to add a few perennials to make it look nice. We have to give them till the second year to really see what they will grow like. We have had some really beautiful blooms this year and lots of hummingbird visitors, which Amy loves. You can see the small brick (tumbled brick) border we put in this year too. We like to garden. Too bad it's been so dang hot this year. It's been a rough year for containers outdoors.
