Okay I'm back as you can see. I had thoughts of quitting this blogging thingy so many times the past week and a half, but I got bored again. So I'm back. Yay.
Lots of things have happened. We have had so much fantastic rain that veggies are coming out the wazoo. David can't believe how many BIG tomatoes that are ripening, and the cucumbers too. He counted 23 tomatoes on one bush yesterday and five of them will be ripe by tomorrow. Yes! That fast. Think I'll be canning a bit this coming weekend for sure. David is just going crazy with this mini farming thing. Last year we had the tomato plants in pots in the courtyard and he was excited when he got his first tomato. We only harvested three off that one tomato plant. So you can see why he's all crazy about this idea about having above ground planting beds.
|These turned orange this morning, will be ripe by tomorrow- big as my hand|

Everything is so green that it hurts your eyes. I love it! Check out the front yard pics I took last week.
|front side of the yard with morning glories and pecan tree which is full of green pecans now|
|front left front of yard with roses, gardenia, geraniums and part of the porch|
|White Texas Wisteria climbing up the front of the house over the living room window.|
Keeps the front rooms cool in the summer. In the green planter hanging are two begonias that are supposed to hate the sun, go figure. They like it fine.

|Tiger Cannas in pot on the left actually bloomed this morning. The Cannas on the right next to the Mock Orange tree bloomed last week when I took this picture, is still in bloom in the courtyard.|
|Cannas bloom up close and personal|

|Pink miniature roses in courtyard|
|My red and pink geraniums and small pink flowers of the begonia in the back.|

As you can see, so much green it hurts your eyes. If it weren't for the occasional flower I'd go blind.
