I bought marigolds to plant around my tomatoes. There are three different kinds of them and this one is the larger of the blooms. The grass on the flower is from me spreading grass mulch around the bases of the flowers and tomatoes.
This flower was sitting among the marigolds but I really don't feel it is from the same family. I had to prop them up at first before their roots were established. I bought some hardy geraniums to plant among my tomato plants so the raised bed will have two purposes as a flower garden and tomato garden.
It is a little like a horror movie as the vines attack our deck. The two vines below the deck on the ground are robust and now have started vining up through the cracks of the deck. It would be better for me to cut them back now that wait for them to get large and hard to move.
I am headed up to the house today to see what thing I will do. I have so much to do there and yet pick one or two things and move on. The truck helps me get things out of the basement and home.
The flower gardens really need attention too. I just get something done each time and feel better about progress. The shingles will be replaced some time in early July and I can keep working on painting rooms and fixing a ceiling in the former art gallery. I have a furnace guy coming to check on air condition problems and a thermostat placement problem. I think that probably there are some tweaks needed to make it work correctly.
It is the weekend and I hope everyone has a good two days in a row. Thank you for stopping by today.
