I have been meaning to take an updated shot of my Johnny Jump-ups, and at last I have! I am sitting on the back deck with my delightful husband, Steven, recovering from my first day back at work. Rather than my usual Monstrous Monday Post, I thought I would share a few floral photos.
OK, this is not a picture of flowers. It is a couple of lawn decorations trying to cheer up where my peonies and daisies used to be. I hope to plant more flowers in the future, so they can tag team blossom.
So much for the front yard. Returning to the back, I took a shot of the more recent addition to the container garden, in the foreground, and an original pot which is growing well. As you can see, I have not swept my deck lately. Neither have I arranged the pots in a harmonious display. What do you want from me? At least I water the damn things.
Both these are part of my original container planting, but I added the white begonias to the pink after the little purple flowers with the pink died. There were little purple flowers in the pot in the background as well, but only a little greenery remains.
Not a bloom, but the pride of my container garden is the basil. I have made two batches of fresh pesto so far and intend to make more. Or I may make those little salad bites, where you have a leaf of basil, a slice of mozzarella, and half a cherry tomato, with balsamic vinegar drizzled on top. Is that the whole recipe? I must research the matter.
Ooh, look at this, over 300 words and not a glimpse of Nosferatu. Pretty good for a Monday, I say.
