Tomato bed dotted with marigolds.
For the past couple weeks, I’ve been thinking of adding a few marigolds to the veggie beds. Today, I finally did it.
A touch of color from marigolds for the peas and beans.
Marigolds were a staple in my Wisconsin garden, mainly to keep away intruders like rabbits and deer. They aren’t really a problem in my subdivision in Texas, but I’ve come to the conclusion that the pretty yellow and orange flowers just seem like they belong in my garden — wherever it is.
So during a pit stop at Home Depot I bought a flat and popped them in the soil between the different veggies. It took barely 15 minutes to plant them and give them a little drink of water. Well worth the admiring time I have to look forward to.
I hope soon the cucumber vines will overtake the marigolds.
The pink velour crape myrtle.
I am so happy with how my crape myrtle tree/shrub is doing. It has lots of beautiful dark green and red leaves. So pretty to look at. Can’t wait to see it flower.
