  Take thy plastic spade,
                  It is thy pencil; take thy seeds, thy plants,
                  They are thy colours.

William Mason, The English Garden, 1782





This journal will not let me load multiple pictures again.

I just want to share pics of my garden's bounty but I can only load one.

I am picking the veggies and flowers everyday and sharing them with my neighbors.  

I am continually adding more plants to my yard and I am hoping that it will look like a lush tropical garden in a year or so. 

I am still looking for a slow growing bamboo plant.  Other varieties of bamboos can be very invasive so I am cautious about just getting one from the home improvement store.  Our local nursery is suppose to get some compact ones in two weeks.

I am also crazy about brugmansias. So far I have white, yellow, and peach colored ones. I recently acquired a variegated one that is suppose to have pink blooms. It is a cutting so I am yet to see its flowers.

Well, It's time for beddy-bye.  Goodnight, my friends!

I'm jealous.  You are already picking your bounty.  My mini garden is only in the blooming stage--so I am hoping I may get a few tomatoes, peppers, and beans before the snow arrives!  Great picture--and what a feeling, that you grew them!  LaVern

Wow, my tomatoes are just starting to grow fruit.  I will have to look up brugmansias and see what they look like, something I've never heard of before.

I just looked up brugmansia, is it a vine?  If so I think I had some in CA but I called it trumpet vine.  The hummingbirds loved it.
