Lots of Blooms

It's amazing what rain followed by a warm spell will do. We came home from market this afternoon and my double Knockout Rose buds were opening up.
It was sure a nice surprise.

Plus, a few other things too.

Gaillardias -

Geum - Mrs. Bradshaw -

I also got some of my annuals planted. Calibrachoa is a favorite of mine in containers. They are self-cleaning and easy to care for.

I have two of these buckets hanging on my s
hed fence. They are both planted with Amber Star Calibrachoa, and Snowstorm Bacopa.

And a hanging basket of Amber Star and Red Calibrachoa for my hummers.

I have taken my camera to market each week, but we've been so busy I haven't gotten any decent photos to share yet.
We have sold just about every extra plant we grew this year. I've heard that more people are growing a home garden this year because of the ecomony, and I can certainly believe it from what we have sold. All we have left are about a half dozen of pepper plants, basil, dill, and thyme. Hopefully the rest of our broccoli will be in next week so we will have something to put out to sell.

Last of all, I'll leave you with a picture of my gardening pooch. She hates to have her picture taken, and always puts her nose right in the lens. What a girl!
You can tell she was tired and had sniffed everything out there she could find to sniff. She was so ready to head to the house.

Till next time,
Happy Gardening!
