Sorry for the overload of pictures but there are just so many to share.

Not an overcast day it was very smokey. Just thought you would be interested.

These flowers are named statice. Very pretty papery like blossom.

Pink wave petunias. I thought the slugs got them but they are thriving now.

My long front flowerbed.

They're back. Very bad Japanese Beetles. I need to bring out the soapy water to kill them. Right after I took this the beetle flew right at me.

Yea!! My tomato and peppers are huge. My tomatoes are taller than me.

I love these flowers. I saw these in AZ at an AJ's market. The name is Angelonia. They grow well with little upkeep.

My butternut squash. Ants have been terrorizing my squash plants.

I love these bright red petunias.

I have never grown this variety. They look like a petunia but their name is Torenia.

In the back of our yard Brooklyn and I threw down some wild flower seeds.

My first harvest. Isn't it the most beautiful thing you have ever seen. I bet you can't wait for the tomatoes and pepper pictures.

I love impatiens. They are such a happy flower.

I call this box my melon box. I have cantaloupe and watermelon growing. Keep your fingers crossed.

I have yellow squash, zucchini, eggplant, and butternut squash growing in this box. The leaves are enormous on my plants.

Pepper flowers.

I planted this flower last year. I am currently having a brain fart. I can't remember the name.

My beautiful verbena. Brandon hates this flower but I think they are pretty.

More beautiful wildflowers.

Again I am sorry for all of the plant pictures. I think they are so pretty. Stay tuned for more. I almost get a tear in my eye when Brooklyn calls a plant by its correct name.


  1. What an amazing garden and gardener! I can't believe how much growth since we were there, and it's not been quite a month. Way to go!

  2. I am SO amazed and SO jealous! I will think of you anytime I see flowers and gardens now... "I wish I was as amazing as Tassi!"

  3. Don't apologize for all the pictures, I love flower pictures. I continue to be very impressed with your beautiful yard!
