Bevs Early Summer Garden

After a busy and fun week with Kathy and kids, things have returned to normal at Almost Heaven South - at least for two weeks until Rhett and family stop in for a welcome back from Korea visit. Even better, Alex went camping for a couple of days with a friend - we won't know what to do with ourselves. I went out the other day and took some shots of Bev’s flower garden which is starting to show its summer colors - she obviously didn’t take the year off as I did with my veggie garden.

Last year, because of so many weeds, I’d decided to just spray this part of the wildflower bed all summer, then start over in the fall. I didn’t know it but last fall, Bev had collected a bunch of the Black Eyed Susans seeds and sowed them in the area, so we now have a mass of yellow.

All we need now is some rain and a little drop in temps.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. Lovely. We got a little rain on Friday, I'm hoping for more. And I hear you on the drop in temps!! Also, I smoked a fatty yesterday! Well, actually two. Amazing.

  2. Nice photos. We've had so much rain this year. I wish I could send you some. It actually reached 80 degrees yesterday, just the 3rd time so far this year. Crazy weather.

  3. It's great that the two of you enjoy a hobby together and what could be more rewarding than gardening. I love black eyed susans. Beautiful flowers.

  4. Amen to that last statement, Larry... We desperately need rain up here. Every storm the past week has missed us... We are hot and dry... But they say relief is on the way... I'll be happy for that!!!!

    Beautiful flower garden...

  5. My eyeballs nearly popped out of their sockets when I got our latest Maryville utility bill. The heat there is unbelievable! It's been humid as all get-out here, and temps in the high 70s. I'm just glad it isn't hotter!

  6. I zoomed in on the Black-Eyed-Susans . . . really eye catching! It's nice how wildflower beds are different each year.

  7. Love your cute garden! The temperature surely affect all kinds of plants especially when the weather is too hot. Plants need plenty of water when it does like that.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
