Vegetable & Flower Gardens

After last years dry spell, we prepared for this year by setting out
five 50 gallon water barrels. They have been filled and refilled, refreshing the water on a regular basis.  Needless to say, we have not used them at all yet this season. Our rains are coming in as if scheduled and the vegetable and flower gardens are responding beautifully.
Zinnias, swiss chard and lettuce
Gladiolas and beets
Gladiolas, beans and onions
Peas and spinach
Lilies, lilies, lilies ...
and more lilies
and yet another color
mixed in with multiplier onions
can one ever really
have enough lilies?
See, I do grow other flowers too
loving the Red, White and Blue
and the old weathered look
ah, the resting place for 
after weeding of course!

Cher, Your garden is coming along beautifully...looks like you've been eating plenty of spinach and lettuce too already. My 2nd crop of radishes and spinach are coming great too.
Your Speedwell is beautiful. Mine needs to be cut back already for another bloom this fall. Love the deep purple it gives. Your lilies...aww so cool. You have the same burgundy Stella D'Ore I have. Aren't they nice.
Your green thumbs are sure showing.
Have a Great Day Sis, missya

Yum! Your garden looks beautiful and healthy. And no, one can never have enough lilies. They are one of my favorites. The yellow ones in the corner are lovely and what a striking red one.
Love your weathered additions to the garden.

Your gardens are gorgeous! A woman after my own heart. I just love lilies too! I have a whole bed for Asiatics and daylilies scattered throughout the front bed. I just love them!

Lovely photos of your garden, even the veggie patch is a delight to look at. I can tell this is all very much a labor of love.

Thank you for sharing with Today's Flowers. Have a great week.
