Sunny and bright in the garden at noon. A pink hybrid geranium and dwarf French marigolds grow near some young summer squash plants.

Here snapdragons and basil are doing fine near the young zucchini (courgette)! These squash and zucchini plants will have to spill out into the yard as they grow. This IS a tiny beginner's garden! Oh, and didn't I just put in a few cantaloupe seedlings....LOL!

The cucumbers are climbing the bamboo supports and blooming. I hope to have some kind of harvest. Now, it is so enjoyable just to see the foliage and flowers. [I've been reading on this...too little nitrogen or too much nitrogen and tomatoes won't set fruit....if the nights are too cool and/or the days too hot, the same fruit, just lots of leaves and blossoms. This is all a learning process. Thank-goodness I am not dependent on this for my food!!!]
Finally, after moving those plants around, I have to wash up at the "garden sink".

P.S. don't miss today's watercolors!NOw for sale in ETSY!
