Blogging from the Backyard!

8 Aug

Just so you know, I’m posting this from my yard while eating a mango and drinking sweet tea vodka & lemonade.  Life rocks some days.

I planted these at the beginning of the summer, and forgot about them.  I don’t know what they are, but they like the spot where I planted them.  They’re a little out of control at the moment, but I made sure to take the picture after I plucked off the deadheads.  A few flowers broke off, so they now reside on my kitchen table.

I have a red tomato!  Yay!  And some baby peppers!

In a bit of sad news, Fern isn’t looking too good.  We bought Fern last summer, along with our deck set, and could barely fit it all in the Civic (sniff).  Here’s me with Fern on my lap, and Fern today.

Oh well, you can’t win them all.  RIP Fern.

    It’s time to find Fern a final resting place…

    Poor fern. But hooray for edible growth!

    Yay for gardens. Poor fern. I think that’s a dahlia, but I could be wrong – it’s still quite pretty.
