How does your garden grow?

We were blessed this year in So Cal, to get lots of rain! I am sure my friends in the Midwest would wish it would stop! As you may know So Cal has been in a drought, but after our winter rains, they say we are out of the drought, but I am sure that will change next year!

Here are a few pics of my garden, I went to the nursery yesterday and bought a few new plants, Mother's Day gift for me!

This is a little planter I have under the garage window on your way up the front walk. Here is the other one:

I have 2 clematis growing on the porch by the front door! They are doing great!

This is a cool pot I put together yesterday. Chocolate Cosmos in the center and Phantom and Picasso Petunia around the edge. Don't you just love the color!

This is the side yard garden we finished one year ago. I still am amazed by it. I have lots of veggies growing, they really love the sun.

Here is a windmill blade I got last year, can you see my friendly grasshopper on the bottom left?

Lastly here is my bouginvella on the back patio, love the color!

Have a great Wednesday!

Found your blog and love it; I do live in midwest and soooo tired of rain, but enjoyed your sunshiny pictures! I want a clematis for the corner of my shed this year--love the inspiration from your photos. Have a great Mother's Day. Patty
