Since I’ve been writing gardening analogies, I decided to show off my inspiration. Here are current photographs of my backyard garden.
Early Girl Tomatoes
I planted tomatoes the first week of March. I have six plants, and each plant has fruit.
Grapevine On My Red Tree Branch Trellis
I built this trellis last year out of a tree branch and red spray paint. Everyone who sees it asks, “What’s that red tree?”
Grapes On the Vine
The vine is fifteen years old. This is the first year I’ve had grapes. Hope springs eternal.
My Zinnia Patch
Our next door neighbor asked, “Did you feed these plants something to make them so big?” Nope. It’s the one thing I’m sure I can grow.
Blue Salvia and Eutin Roses
Coco grew the salvia from seeds several years ago. It’s a perennial that keeps on giving. The Eutin rose in the background is an antique. It smells fabulous.
This box holds begonias, stonecrop, and you guessed it, moonflowers. The line above is jute attached to the eave. Hopefully, the vine will reach for the moon.
Sedum In the Rock Garden
Bacon built a rock garden that looks like a creek bed flowing from my patio. Here are a few container plants from Holy Ghost Creek Too. The grass is called Fiber Optic Grass ’cause that’s what it looks like. The watering can holds Cyclamen, past its prime, but still green. The large terra cotta is home to assorted sedum.
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
