I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

But I did promise you photographic evidence of growth. So here it is.

The daisies are rampant right now - absolutely glorious.

Sadly didn't get these at their peak, but they're absolutely gorgeous.

The black-eyed susans are everywhere, flopping and filling up the garden with this glorious yellow.

The rose bloomed early, except for this giant branch that I trained up the fence and is leaning over into the rest of the garden. It smells wonderful.

The tomato seeds! Admittedly, no sign of actual tomatoes just yet, but the seeds have sprouted and grown into a more promising plant than I could have imagined.

The lavender smells and looks wonderful.

And it attracts the butterflies a lot - which delights the cats who really don't know what to do with them, but know they want to chase them.

These are just the prettiest things peeking out from beneath the daisies.

The hostas have these wonderful little white bell-like flowers.

Plum tomato! Plum tomato!

The chile pepper is suffering a little in this scorching weather, but there is one that I plan to use in some cooking sometime soon
