Pictures from the garden this morning.


The near corner has a pink geranium in a container along with one of my "treasures", a broken "Thistle" mug from Scotland.
The far corner has a container with the "Lemon Sugar" daisy which I love!


Snap dragons, "Merlot" lettuce, marigolds, and radishes all freshly watered and mulched. I am leaving town for a couple of days....so mulching will keep things fine until I'm back!


More of the garden, with fresh mulch around the lettuce and tomatoes. A "Martha Washington" geranium sits in the middle (herbs should soon be coming up around her). I also added some verbena (flowers not "lemon verbena") in the borders...I also sowed some seeds for leaf lettuce and basil.
So far we have enjoyed some of the "Merlot" leaf lettuce in our salads....no other harvest yet...it has been cool. I do wonder how our local Hmong farmer/gardeners get so much lettuce ready for our farmer's market when the weather is so cool! They are wonderful gardeners!

Very nice! Of course...I am wondering if you will be inspired to paint a painting of the daisies...I hope you will! Enjoy your day!

That top picture is very nice, Lila, with a touch of lavender against the green.

I also like those new flowers. Too bad I don't garden anymore.
