More plants from the field of the Noodle

Some cool looking dead morning glories and squash blossoms.


Okra and other delicacies...
I think this is Corn and Beans... one of the three sisters? What do I know? The other sister is squash? I only know what my kid tells me.

Well I know this one is corn...

My Daughter...The Real Gardener

This is Nicole after we took a five day road trip...after seeing her husband and the doggies, she headed right for the garden! She has her priorities!

These are some tomatoes I planted. Evidently, I planted too many and then did not give them enough sun because I am told that they are "leggy". I transplanted about 8 of them into bigger pots and put them in the sunlight. We will see what happens. It was just an experiment after all. I haven't grown a vegetable since the bean in elementary school where we learned about cotyledons.. I like that word. I hope I remembered it correctly. You may NOT laugh at my tomato planting skills!!!

Camo for the Garbage Can

Ginger, Peace Lily Bird of Paradise and Pothos in front of bamboo screen.


Ferns -these are called Macho Ferns! Hmmmm.....

I love succulents..

These are from IKEA. They were cheap! Succulents are squishy.. that's a botanical term, I'm sure.


Also from IKEA. I love succulents. They are squishy. I think that is a bottanical term. I took botany in college. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Banana Trees

This is two varieties of banana trees. The little sweet sugar bananas and ruby red bananas. I don't like banana's but I like the trees. They are really pretty and grow nicely.

Around the deck

These are alocasia and another hawaiian little shrub with yellow flowers. I can't remember the name of it.. come on menopausal mind.. ahhhhhhh IXORA. I used to have a great memory.

The Doorstep

Various little plantlets from IKEA in the entrance. The two that are in the matching pots are called ZZ plants. I likez them a lot!

Angels Trumpets, Purple Shield and Calydiums..and a frilly thing I don't know the name of. Anybody that knows, feel free to educate me. It was a sweltering hot day and most of the plants were none to happy.. and I totally understand that. UGH!

The Basics are in....

Here are the photos of my yard as it is now. I am pretty happy with the progress but more to go! The more the merrier... This big monster was here when I moved in. I don't think it can die!
