I wanted to share with you some pictures I took over the Spring and Summer.
Spring and Summer are my favorite times of the year.
I love Fall too but not much for Winter.
I’m not much for the cold and all the snow.
Though I admit the snow is quite beautiful.
Driving in the snow is the worst. So not looking forward to it. Seems nobody knows what they are doing anymore.
But, Spring and Summer are gone.
Fall is here and soon it will be Winter.
Soon it will be Christmas too.
This past Saturday I took a seed starting class. I took one last year even though I had some earlier experience in seed starting. No matter what I think I know, I can always learn something new. Taking gardening classes is a lot like sewing. The instructors have different knowledge levels and experiences. I want to learn from them. I’m always seeking to learn more.

A few weeks ago, after some over night rain, I had a ton of birds in my yard. Most of them were hunting for the worms that come to the surface after a storm.
This little caught my attention. Not because he was different. He looked like all the other Robins in the yard. It was because he was the best at snagging worms. Continue reading “In the Garden…….”
Instead of posting pictures of lovely flowers, I thought I would show you what happen last Thursday night.
There was the most wonderful of electric storm that went on for about an hour. I tried to capture on video but I’m not quite good at that. You should have seen it. It was amazing. Than the sky opened up and hailed hail the size of golf balls. Some even larger.
The next morning woke up to this.

A few weeks back we were getting a lot a rain and hail. This is normal for the time of year. During this time my Irises were in bloom and they took a beating.

The temperatures here are starting to drop a little and it’s the last day of September. For Colorado it can snow anytime. So, I’m harvesting the last of my tomatoes. The ones that actually ripen.

Well, Fall is definitely here. Not much is still blooming but what’s in my containers.
Thought I’d show you what’s still Bloom’n.
My black petunias. They are really a very deep purple. I love still. I look for them every year. They are very hard to find. I noticed when they come in they’re in very small quantities. These are a striped version. Just lovely!

Over the summer we have seen a lot of rain and that has had it’s toll on my tomatoes. They have suffered blossom end rot, cracking, and aphids (that’s another post for next time). I just came to a place where I had to make a decision to give up. After all there is always next year.

One of the vegetables I really wanted to grow this summer was cucumbers. I love cucumbers. This cucumber plant I started by seed. It’s done well so far but in the last two weeks it’s started to develop some problems.

This Sunday I want to share some of my favorite pictures I’ve taken over the summer so far.

Hey there! Today I want to share with you my peppers. Now these were not started from seed but were bought last month at a home improvement store. In my attempt to learn more about growing vegetables I thought I would cover my bases. That way I’d have something to work with in case the seedlings didn’t make it. Not only did I buy peppers but tomatoes and cucumbers too. I share about them in future posts. Continue reading “In The Garden…..Peppers & A Tomato”
