My Garden This Month – June

The garden is thriving this month.

My basil is smelling and tasting great!

I am always looking for ways to save my basil to have it year round and I have found another way.

I found this on Pinterest.

I am trying this today!!!
Cherry tomatoes almost ready.

So far we have one sunflower that has bloomed and it is glorious!

My Garden This Month – May

The garden has had some ups and downs last month.

The weather has been a lot warmer in March and the first part of April this year.

So I have planted bunches of goodies.

Big Ran and the grandkids have already been eating from our strawberry patch.

Everything is looking great!

Strawberries, onions, sunflowers, lettuce, and radishes all share a small space.


I have some other vegetables planted, but they haven’t shown their green yet.

My peonies are growing like weeds!

Here is a blurry picture that I took about a month ago of my peony plant just coming out of the ground.

This is a picture that I took today of the same plant.


This is the plant that has the white blooms and the pink blooms on it.

Last year it only had five blooms and this year it has six. 

I planted this peony plant out by my garden on the new house’s property.

  So after we sell the house we are living in now, I will have at least one peony.  

It’s beautiful!

It has one more bloom on it getting ready to bust.

I am planting some perennials around the outside of the garden.  One little plant at a time.

Are your peonies blooming yet?

My Garden This Month – March

The garden is getting exciting already this year.

For me, it’s exciting when ANY plant comes rising up out of the soil that I planted the year before.

Below is a picture of  a mum plant that is green and growing.

These little leaves are on a hydrangea that I planted last summer.


This little bush starts out with green leaves, then they turn a dark red.

If anyone knows what it is called, I would appreciate the info.


I have 3 small rows planted so far, lettuce – radishes – lettuce.

Here are some buds on my hydrangea that I planted 2 years ago.

Tomorrow I am going to plant some potatoes, peas, and onions.

Wish me luck!

What does your garden look like this month?

Home and Garden Show

Big Ran and I met his brother Rick and his wife Lisa and the Home and Garden Show in Overland Park, Kansas.

Here is a shower stall with some nice tile.  I like the little black border.

They had many booths with furnaces, water heaters, roofing, windows, but the booths I liked the best were the landscaping ones.

I think this little set up would work in my back yard!

I love the sound of moving water.

I’m so ready for spring.

I am going to have one of these in my yard by next spring.  Don’t you just love some bright yellow bushes?

It was a fun time and nice to catch up with family.
