Green Thumb Sunday...


I have so many pictures I could post, but I won't. I'll try to just post the really good ones! Above is my pink David Austin Olde English Rose. I love that variety. They are my favorite. I think this one is really pretty.

Next we have a picture of honeysuckle blooms. I didn't realize it was time for them to bloom until I was working in they yard and found it. I love the smell of honeysuckle, don't you?


Here is a picture of the herbs I planted in my vegetable garden. I just couldn't find a better spot so I decided to use part of the vegetable garden as an herb garden. I planted patchouli, blue vervain, horehound, st. johns wort, mugwort and feverfew. I sure hope they survive!

Does anyone have any idea what the above plant is? I have no idea, but have seen a few growing in my yard. It is very pretty and the color of the flowers in this photo is not accurate, it is more blue. I'd really love to know what it is. I also have one more mystery plant, only this one is a tree.


So, anyone know what this tree is? I'd love to know!

That is about all for today. I have more photos but I'll try to post them later in the week.

Happy Mother's Day to the moms.

Blessings,

The tree looks like cotonis or smokebush. Does it have large airy flowers late summer?

Cow Vetch. I have something similar in my garden and I've been wondering what it is.

I, too, love the scent of honeysuckle!

I'm absolutely useless in solving garden mysteries, so I'm glad others have been more useful. The cow vetch is lovely, isn't it?

I'm loving your garden! It's so nice to see other peoples gardens. I love honeysuckle. They grow wild on my property.
