I have been MIA for a while now. I’m sorry I haven’t really given any kind of explanation. I show up for Paint Party Friday and that’s nearly it.
Life has been a whirlwind. A gardening whirlwind! I’ve been trying to sell my heirloom tomato plants and get my veggie garden planted along with picking out gorgeous new plants for my flower gardens. I always go overboard on the flowers. It’s my weakness and I can hardly say no. So I thought I’d share some of my garden with you.

Now these pics aren’t from the new flowers I’ve bought, I’ll post pictures for those as soon as I finish planting. I take my time, carefully deciding where each little beauty will take its place in my beloved gardens. I set the plant in pot in gardens and step back to see if I like the color and texture combinations. It takes me forever, but I so enjoy it.

The above picture is my Swing Garden. I love the roses on here. My favorite being the climber on the left. It was a start from my mother. The only one I’ve been able to keep alive of all the rose starts she gave me. She could put a stick in the ground and I swear it would grow. She always called this Seven Sisters.
|just a pretty red rose – I don’t recall the name|
|a vigorous phox – I keep spreading it around cause it just keeps spreading!|
I have big plans for the Farmer’s Markets around here but I am dreadfully behind on everything. I want to get back to painting my painted pots that I like to do and wanted to sell them with herbs and plants in them this year.
Oh, I wanted to show you also my finished graduation card that I made. Some may know it didn’t quite get the warm reception from the recipient that I hoped for, but hey she’s 18 and it didn’t have any cash in it… haha But it does make me feel good that as soon as I listed it on my Etsy shop, it sold! woohoo!
I have a mystery plant that I would love for anyone to help me identify. I went to pick them out and thought better of it. It just looks like it should be a flower. But I have no idea what it would be. I don’t have anything that looks like this that I have found. It may be a bunch of weeds, who knows.

Thanks for taking the garden walk with me 🙂 Oh, also my son had his last day of Pre-School! More pics are on my Facebook.

Speaking of Facebook, I finally made myself a page for my heirloom tomato plants. If you want, look me up… it’s called Jaime’s Heirloom Tomato Plants. Till next time…
