This was one of the first beds that she started, and it looks great!
There were bees all over the flowers, they were cold and not very active.
This is one of her mystery plants that appeared in that same bed. We have no idea what it is! The plant is similar to a Tibouchina. It has fuzzy leaves, but the stems are red, and this is some type of bud that is forming. Any ideas?
This is the area next to the garage. The area behind the arbor is being transformed into a vegetable garden. I am sure it will be spectacular!
She has created all of these beds this Summer! Ridiculous...I know. They look like they have been there 10 years.
Here a shot of the veggie garden under construction. I am only showing you this, because I know the after will be amazing! She has already started herbs (around the trellis).
She called this Datura, and I absolutely love it. I got some seed pods off of it, and I also received seeds from the Seed Swap from Lona @ A Hocking Hills Garden
Peppermint Stick Zinnia
I was amazed by this Zinnia. It is a Peppermint Stick Zinnia, and there were 5 blooms on the plant. This was one, the others were solid red, light pink, dark pink, and then one striped bloom! I got seeds from these.
I left with a lot of goodies! Several different seeds, Pineapple Sage, Variegated Hydrangea, and a few others that the Dirt Queen had rooted.
So that is the latest and greatest at the Dirt Queen's place.....I have a looooong way to go!Sorry I haven't been around to visit much this week. I have been a little behind. I will be working on catching up tonight! See ya'll soon!
