Monthly Garden Progress

This month's garden photos should be a lot better than this. We are in our second week of rain and the plants are showing it. It certainly has greened up!

The full sun garden continues to fill in though.

I have already pulled Susan's, Cosmos, Marigolds, and Zinnia's out of the paths.

I just pretty much let this paticular garden re-seed year after year. It gets quite congested, I like the look for the most part. I do see where I need to make some changes.

I think next month I will include the progress from another flower bed too.



Here's hoping other garden bloggers will share the monthly progress in their gardens. Looking forward to seeing Marsha's at http://marsha-garden.blogspot.com the first of the month.

I love watching the progression of my gardens from month to month. Your full sun garden has grown by leaps & bounds. All that rain is really helping it fill in quickly! :) It looks great!

I love seeing the progression of your bed. It has really filled in nicely.

I do like the cottage garden style of a "jumbled" garden, with flowers intermingling everywhere!

Hi Darla! Your garden looks great. Love the morning glory on the trellis! And that group of tiered clay pots is neat-o! How'd you do that?

Peaking at your blog today and your garden is so pretty. I love that tiered terra cotta pot in your garden. Thanks for sharing so I could walk in your garden today.

Your progress looks grand but mine not so much. Too much rain and not enough sun. Last year we were in a long time drought. I love the fence around your garden. It's very classy.

Darla I love looking at the progression of your flower beds. It is amazing how much it had changed. The picture really show the difference.
