Randomness explained

A random list of photos, I know, but I am cleaning out my 'blog' file. These were meant to be posted a long, long time ago. Sigh, I have good intentions, but I just don't seem to put them at the top of my 'to do' list!

'Peace' in the garden, a gorgeous rose, originally named Rose d'Ore in France.

One of my favorite photos of Mike and Lefty at the Western Bonanza Livestock Show in February...Lefty was enjoying the people/cattle watching.

"The Wife of Bath" a lovely Austin rose, in full fig.

"Love-in-the-Mist" in a gorgeous blue, such a fun flower, with funny seed pods...a favorite as it will replant its self and come up over and over again.

"Peace" in Bud.

So there you have it, my collection of random photos...for now!

Just a Little Bit Behind....

Updated pictures of the garden

Looking towards the back fence and the garden shed

Looking towards the front, note morning glories I didn't plant!

Looking at the zinnias :) and Potatoes (a failure, just a pound for all the foliage) and the compost

A beautiful green tomato with 'glitter'-so pretty in the sun

Well, as you can see, I have not posted in a good long while...so many more important things to do and so, this blog has languished... However my garden did not languish. It grew and grew, especially the Italian squash, which went every where! Next year, I think I will plant one. Also, all the squash will go in pots! They need room to roam and I can put the beds to better use...
The tomatoes did well, even though they weren't ready until October. I just used the last of them up-after covering the plants against freezes and rain, I let them go and last weeks freezing did them in! Garden Clean up, here I come.

(More catch-up posts to come)
