So, so far, I have 4 inch sweet peas coming up, I have a cosmos already blooming, and a tiny daisy out front along the front fence.
Here in the yard (where I can see everything from my laptop), I have 5 lavender plants, 3 daisy plants ( 1 large one and two small ones), salvia (for the hummingbirds), snapdragons, phlox, stock, and some verbena. Oh, and 1 Tacoma stans, which will be HUGE by the end of summer (also for the hummingbirds).
So, I've got my work cut out for the next couple of days and for next week. Now I just have to figure out where to put all these things! Here are some pics of what I have so far:
Okay...I looked at the seed packets I bought yesterday: 4 zinnias, 1 butterfly flower packet, 2 Tithonia (Mexican sunflower), 2 chocolate flower (the guy said these have an amazing aroma!), 2 globe mallow (the guy said these LOVE the heat and they are native to the desert here), and 2 packets of Rudbeckia. He used to work at the Living Desert and he was very helpful and even gave up his break time to talk to me!
I also have some black eyed Susan seeds that my neighbor saved for me from her front yard last year. I need to get them into the ground NOW!!! And, I just discovered they are Rudbeckia!
I also bought a 1 gallon honeysuckle vine...sweet orange. Can't wait for that to bloom!
