in the garden....

Our garden is blooming!  I am especially in love with the sunflowers..big old floppy heads, so cheerful!  The one in the pic above is about 9 ft tall!

This one has lots of flowers!  I am going to plant a whole row of sunflowers in my garden next year
because they are super easy to grow and I just love them.

Catnip on the right....cats can't wait till this is dried...this was a little quart sized plant about a month ago...has grown tremendously!

Knock out em!

My cilantro has gone to seed....I could eat this with anything!

Mints gone wild!

Cucumbers are starting to grow...gonna make a big old pickle jar!

These little guys somehow ended up in my deck flowerbeds.  I let them be and just pick em as I need them.  LOL

Growing alongside the tomatoes....

The kittens....from Monkey....our adopted stray who came with the house!
One of the pure white kittens has a blue and a green eye.  I think she's deaf. 
I had an identical cat as a child, and he was deaf.  I think it's a genetic thing.
They are so funny...they climb the trees and live in the shed and frolic around in the woods.

What's growing in your garden?




  1. Hi Sue,
    Your sunflowers are gorgeous. I haven't planted any since the deer ate all of mine the first year I planted them. I should find a space inside the garden for them. Right now I have so much zucchini that I made a cake with it, and I will start some pickle making today. Canning season is beginning!

  2. Gorgeous garden Sue!!!! I really want to plant some sunflowers but my hubs says they are too messy!!! :(
