How does your garden grow?

Mom’s ornamental garden is doing reasonably well this year, despite Mom’s lack of time for working on it.

This is the main ornamental garden, looking form the south east.

In addition to her very gradually expanding main ornamental garden. Mom also tried a sunflower circle this year. The concept was an outer circe of short sunflowers and an inner circle of tall sunflowers. Unfortunately, only one of the inner sunflowers germinated. Mom tried a secondary planting but some vicious, despicable vermin ate them before they got big. So the tall sunflower grows alone.


It’s a very tall sunflower.


With pretty flowers

We had some storms the last few days and the big sunflower was blown over today. It must have been some wind, because all of Mom’s tomato cages were knocked over as well.
