Today I'm going to ignore how hot it is because
some places are hotter.
I'm not going to worry about how dry the soil is because
some places are drier.
Today I choose to see what's right instead of what's wrong.
Everyday is a choice and I choose happy.
I have a tomato growing out of a crack in my patio.
It's from a seed dropped by the grape tomatoes that popped up in my compost last summer. I transplanted one seedling to a pot on my patio and some of the fruit was knocked to the ground. It's amazing to me that this plant is growing out of a crack between the pavers!
I water it whenever I'm watering my containers.
Supertunia petunias, ornamental oregano, and sedum
These petunias are fragrant and smell like lilies.
Hummingbirds have been making daily visits to the silene regia. This southeastern native can grow to four feet tall. The unopened flowers look like tubes of lipstick.
It grows in my dogwood garden near heliopsis and yarrow.
Tiny mystery butterfly on the roses
My Abraham Darby roses are thriving in the heat. They are growing in a big pot on my patio and are wonderfully fragrant.
