Below is a picture of an Asiatic Lily that I found blooming in the flowerbed between the garden and the green house this morning. (TAH-DAH! Surprise! Surprise!)
Here is Scotty's Gecko keeping watch over the flower bed (I had to laugh at Oscar, the bloodhound, who apparently noticed it for the first time at dusk the other evening. He bayed at it for a good five minutes before we convinced him to move on. He won't be taking any short cuts through my flower beds anytime soon as he's pretty sure that wiggly glowing thing will get him)
And, in case you've been wondering (and even if you weren't), here is the garden in progress. We should be picking green beans by the middle of next week. It got too hot too soon for the peas. Lesson learned: peas should be planted in February.
Here's one of the tomato plants in the greenhouse. You can't see it in this picture, but its loaded with fruit as are most of its partners. Growing plants like this is a completely new experience and not without its headaches. Sadly, I've had one fatality thanks to my tendency to over water (I think I gave it an extra gallon whilst in a watering induced hypnosis and didn't catch it until late the next day). I'm considering joining OWCA (Over Waterer's Club of America). I hear they have a twelve step program.
I can't wait to see what blooms next!
