The Backyard is Filling in Beautifully & A Few New Glass Crafts.


Just thought I'd share how the backyard is filling in. I love waking up in the morning and going out about 6am with my coffee and seeing what has bloomed today. It's so refreshing & peaceful. I'm not your typical gardener, I really don't know what I'm doing. If I see something I like I plant it. If it starts looking a little sad I move it to another location. I don't trim when I'm suppose too, so I'm told. But everything seems to grow anyways. I just water & appreciate the beauty.
Love when this one comes back every year. It's one of my favorites.
Another glass project I just finished.
My latest glass craft.
Just a little peak. Can't wait until their in full bloom.
My sunflowers are starting to get really tall & just starting to open.
A pair of little boots I picked up at a yard sale for $1.00
The yard is starting to fill in.
Does anyone know what this is? Because it grows like a weed and speads all over, but I like the yellow flowers for color in the yard.
This ones inside, but still had to share it's beauty.

    I do love the look of 4:00s but had to start deleting them from my yard a few years ago. They grow TOO well here in Morgan Hill, CA. I had several colors but they were becoming invasive in so many areas of my garden front and back. It took me 4 or 5 years of digging up their giant roots that had developed over the years. And I also had to keep on top of the babies coming up from seed like (four oh) clockwork each spring. I now just enjoy some yellow ones that grow down about 2 houses that I am sure came from seeds out of my yard.

    Beautiful , thanks for letting us peek. Your dish flower is lovely. I have some also.(posted) My problem is water spotting and hard water glazing all my dish creations. I always wonder what the other folks here on HT do about hard water glazing and clouding their fun things in the garden. You have so many flowers, all I have are sunflowers..volunteers. Love 'em. everything else is green, mosly hostas and nonblooming day lilies, which is ok , we like grass looking plants too! :0
