While gardening this afternoon, I found a tomato growing on one of my plants, and the potatoes are pushing through the surface!

OK so I went a little crazy this weekend....
I broke down and got another Tree Peony to replace the one that did not survive the summer last year.  It was probably killed off during the winter.  I think it really did not survive the initial transplant from the old house but put up a struggle.
Then I saw another that I thought was pretty so I got that one for good measure.
Then wandering through Sam's Club way in the back of the store where the "closeout" items are kept I found 2 boxes of hostas.  A beautiful plant called Guacamole it gets huge and I have 2 already but since these were marked down to about $7.00 a box and there are 8 in a box I couldn't let them stay in the store.  Now it is just the roots and eyes so it will take a while for them to get large but for that price I can't complain. I just hope they all produce a nice plant.

The tomato plants are blooming even though they aren't all that big.  Pepper plants are not doing well at all, haven't grown yet.  I think maybe we're getting too much rain this year.  Oh well it's supposed to rain for the next three days so I won't be able to get into the garden again until it dries out a bit.

It rained again. My plants are HAPPY. We are still under drought conditions. I have tomato plants that came up in the compost. The more the merrier.

I have to be really careful going through the garden section of Home Depot or Lowes.  I have a tendency to come home with more than I probably should.  I couldn't resist a mail order bargain last year.  It was a grab bag of 10 hostas for $20, unnamed.  I don't care about the names, but it would have been nice to know how big each would get.  I thought I only had 2 come back this spring, but they were just slow.  Of the 10 I have  7 or 8 so that is still pretty cheap.

Great deal on the Hosta plants. 
One of my favorite times to get plants is the end of t he season when they are closing the garden areas. 
Last year I got a pretty good size Hydrangea, it looked a little worse for wear but it has done very well. Larger than most of my other ones.
I also picked up a "twig" in a pot that was identified as a Magnolia.  Well the twig is growing like crazy and I hope it will provide a bit of shade for some of the hosta plants. 
Nice thing about the end of the season deals is they still come with a 1 year guarantee so you really can't loose.

Planted some more garlic today since most of the earlier planting didn't come up.  Also planted my mini rose bush.  Hopefully this one does as well as the one under the kitchen window.

I hope that the thunderstorms do not flood or wash any of the local gardens away

My plants are standing tall and looking well with the rain fall that has occurred this week.

Our container plants are producing more peppers.  The herbs parsley, oregano and thyme really  need cut also.

Thyme! that is what I need to plant. 

I did see/ smell some Lavender in a Garden store the other day that was so wonderful.  I almost bought some but then I thought it might be better to plant seeds.  I do not do well with seeds though.  May have to check it out in a month or so when it is past it's prime and they are marking the stuff down.

Our peppers and herbs in containers continue to do well.  We actually had 3 or 4 little sun gold tomatatoes too.
