I took a stroll early this morning and captured a few garden beauties to share today and I have an update on the, ” I think I can, a petunia story” too! If you missed my petunia post please click here.
Izzy is always close by. He loves wearing his patriotic bandana. He didn’t want me to take it off, so I just left it. How cute is our Izzy? We sure do love our sweet boy.
We’ll start with a walk up our drive, where purple petunias are adding color and starting to fill in between the bushes. lovely yellow lilies are the icing on the cake, if only they would last a bit longer.
Lavender in the front corner smells so good!
A walk to the backyard takes us to our wonderful veggie garden. It’s too big to get in one photo so I took three.
We have already harvested, perfect round new potatoes, carrots, and zucchini. To see my Zucchini recipes please click HERE.
A field of carrot tops! The carrots are so tasty this year.
The spaghetti squash is starting to grow, no cucumbers yet though, I can’t wait for my first cucumber sandwich.
You can see the tomatillos are starting to show up and we have little green tomatoes that will soon be big reds. Have you tried my hybrid salsa? You can find my recipe HERE and the one for Tomatillos ( salsa verde) HERE
Hubby planted some hot peppers again this year. For a simple recipe please click HERE. The bell peppers share the same garden bed.
Our cottage shed window boxes are finally starting to grow. The crazy Utah weather has messed with all of our plants this year.
Now last on our stroll, we find the fragrant peppermint plant that sits by the back door. It adds amazing flavor to a glass of ice tea my friends, it is so refreshing. Just twist the leaf to release the peppermint oil and toss it in.
Now, are you ready? okay.. just wait for it….
I let out an audible squeal when I saw this! Followed by, “are you kidding me?” The petunia story flower has a friend! I know this is so amazing. Seriously this has been such a magical discovery this year. A white petunia has joined the lovely fuchsia petunias!
Well, there it is, thank you for joining me for my morning stroll.
Seriously… can you believe these petunias?
