A peak

I thought we'd take
a peak at my summer garden

.....some of you may remember
when I stopped at the cute
little nursery in Schulenberg, Texas
and bought my

"Queen Mum"

It's from the Southern Living
plant collection

well it's doing great, take a look

The blooms are gigantic!!!!

I need to take another side trip and get more of these

This is my African Blue Basil
It's a fast growing ornamental herb
and it works great in cut flower arrangements

Here is one of my latest
additions to my flower garden
This low growing bush does great
in our sub-tropical area

My butterfly bush is blooming like mad!!!!
And yes, the butterflies really do love this plant

the Boston fern is loving it's spot
it gets the evening sun
which makes it very happy!!

My Dad's old tub is over flowing with
happy plants

I even rescued this prickly pear catus,
My hubby was going to mow it down
It's now a happy camper in it's pot in my garden

Nothing makes me happier than to go out
in the evening, when the sun is setting
walking around hand watering my plants

Every Little Birdie says-

One is nearer God's heart in a Garden
than anywhere else on earth
