These are the flower beds at our place in May. Our moms gave us lots of plants and we just kept adding and adding anything we could find. Adams parents even made the beds wider and longer for us to keep expanding.
Even Baxter and Trapper helped with the tan bark.
Then fast forward to mid August. Our garden is quite wild and jungle-like! We learned what we like and what we don't like. So we will move some plants this fall - mostly group the same plants together like the various kinds of lillies.
May - August
To the far right are 3 tomato plants and a bell pepper plant. We have gotten several grape tomatoes but we're waiting for the pineapple heirlooms to ripen. Can't wait for those!
