As it turns out we planted what we thought was Red Poppies and sure enough as they are blooming we are finding out that it's actually a Poppy Mix! So we've gotten 3 kinds now, pink, orange, and white.
All the Sweet Peas are still going, and I'm loving all the different colors! Today is a bouquet day so I'll be cutting a nice large bunch of colorful and yummy Sweet Peas.

New Climbing Rose just added! Cecile Brunner aka Sweetheart Rose and we are sure hoping it's the everblooming variety! LOL We just bought it at WalMart so there's no real way of knowing.
I just love this surprise rambler that came, in fact I think I love it even more than the rose we were buying originally!
Here is a photo and a video of a "Hummingbird" Moth it flies around similar to a hummingbird but it is actually a Moth! They kinda fly haphazard and are a little "dingy"! LOL They are smaller than a hummingbird though probably around 1-2 inches.

Olympiad is blooming away and today got a little windy (okay a LOT windy) so I decided to go ahead and cut the open roses to enjoy indoors for a few days. Little did I know but I had enough for a pretty big size bouquet! It smells lovely too!

On the left is a Glory Lily newly planted and on the right is a Clematis, they should do well together.
Peppers, Watermelon (Sugar Baby), and Strawberries. Sure hope we haven't crowded everything, but we are too excited to grow stuff! LOL

Red Rose bloom, it's a pretty one but is a mistake and was grafted onto another rose's bud union but we are happy about it! Seems like some sort of shrub or ground cover rose.
Pink Sweet Pea looks as if it's nearing the end of it's life. That's expected though they don't live out here in the heat so they are perfect for Spring Time.
The Honeysuckle is blooming and a Sweet Pea with it. Also you can see the newest Hollyhock blooming is another pretty light pink!
