Nothing but Flowers and Peppers

The bees seem happy. The obedient plants, Physostegia Virginiana, have decided to bloom again this year in spite of the many weeds...

This front flower garden is totally out of control. The weeds and bamboo grass have almost taken over and I don't know where to begin cleaning things up. Somewhere in the midst of these flowers are two small pear trees Poppy and set out a couple of years ago...

It was good to see the sun come out today. On Wednesday we woke up to rain. The rain came down steady all day and into the night leaving three and a half inches in the rain gauge. The rain stopped yesterday but the sky was dark and cloudy all day. This morning we awoke to a light mist falling. By noon today the sun was breaking through the clouds, lifting my spirit!

How many times have I said "no more garden pictures"?  Well, one more. How about a peck of unpickled peppers?

I had no idea there were so many peppers in the garden.

Not much of a post, I know. Thank you for stopping by.

  1. "A peck of unpickled peppers"...that made me laugh. Those peppers look so delicious and how pretty are those flowers. I love the colour. Deb

  2. Hey! It's a great post. I love it all!

  3. Your flowers are so pretty. I have peppers written on my list lol. Maybe next year I'll grow my own peppers eh?

  4. Cool that you get fall flowers.

  5. Beautiful flowers and a great haul on the peppers.

  6. Look at all those peppers! You'll be busy prepping those!

  7. It is good your garden keeps baring.

    Thank for your comment on my water garden and stopping in to visit.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  8. Don't you just love obedient (disobedient actually) plants? They spread like crazy and are just gorgeous in a big clump like you have there. And the nicest thing about them is that you don't have to baby them along----they just do their thing with great abandon.

  9. Lovely flowers and peppers.
    Have a great Sunday!

  10. Oh the patch of Physostegia is lovely. I have a tiny clump of those, but they never bloom twice. They are crowded out by other things. We have had lots of rain too, and yesterday afternoon it dried up, was foggy this morning, and then was lovely this afternoon.

  11. I so enjoyed your Physostegia...I have white and pink...yours are bigger blooms than mine...don't stop with the flowers:)


I love hearing from you. Thank you for your comment.
