Balkandina, thanks for the link! I'm going to try my hand at making one of those next week.

I HAD to post pictures of this:


We have carrots! And radishes! I almost peed myself when I saw that they had sprouted. I'm so excited.  Grin

Also, my newest aquisition:


The Evil, the Insidious, the Obscenely Expensive Salvia Divinorum! I don't indulge, I just wanted it because some nitwits are trying to outlaw it here in Texas. (They failed, btw.) It warms my rebellious little heart.
And here it is in it's specialized, scientifically indicated humidity tent:


Straws, a plastic bag and a pyrex baking dish. Voila.

Come on, people, let's see some more garden photos! Y'all inspire me.

i do think thats the salvia I have been looking for.  where did you get it if you can say. You're inspiring me and right now I am going out to take some picks of my new seedlings i received this year in different swaps.  I bet the senders would love to see what I've grown.

thanks longelegantlegs--you motivated me to finally get outside and take pics of some of my flower beds (esp the plants I received in the 2 garden swaps I was in).
this is the jade plant I received from auntiem (It seems to want to grow backwards no matter which way I turn the pot, so I decided to let it go--Its actually alot taller than it looks like)

here are the yellow tomato plants I grew from seeds also from auntiem.  the upside down planter is not near as large as the ones in the pot even though it was planted first.


and a couple of the first tomatoes

dahlias--also sent by auntiem

group shot of sage and marigolds (grown from seeds from auntiem) and red salvia and iceplant (plants received from kitkabbit)

lavender in bloom (from auntiem)

and an herb pot (seeds and instructions from auntiem)  and I have to say--over the last week this has become one of my favorite things.  the smells and tastes of fresh grown herbs is UNBELIEVABLE.  You can't imagine how many of my friends had to taste them over the last couple of days


mum sent by kitkabbit (fountain by my hubby)

geranium sent by kitkabbit (putting up a good fight to live but appears to be winning.)

Great pics, everyone. I'm going to try to post my garden  today-but I'm running my first swap and it takes some time Roll Eyes Tongue

all your flowers are gorgeous but the glad esp.  Unfortunately none of mine came up this year.  but here are some photos of what did



unfortunately, the roses up the front steps are a little squished since some idiot decided it would be nice to drive up on them.

susankg53- is that a hand painted chair that your  marigolds reside in? I'm a chairaholic-can we see it, please??
unfortunately, the roses up the front steps are a little squished since some idiot decided it would be nice to drive up on them. 
Just curious how someone might mistake your beautiful rose bordered steps for a driveway?Huh And what type of roses are those-they appear to be mighty tough to fight off a car!!

they are carpet roses and lay pretty close to the ground anyway.  Actually, I don't know if he actually landed on the roses so much as he threw huge pounds of dirt that he dug up in my yard as he flew threw it up the hill to the steps and then flew across the street.  lol.  my hubby was standing 10 feet away from all of this when it happened.  We were also very lucky that none of the dogs were out as they would have been hit since they spend alot of time sitting by the steps being nosy and looking in cars as they drive by.  Any other time they would have been outside with him.

Susan, Supermedic, your flowers are beautiful!
Makes me wish I had more ornamentals.

Supermedic, I got the salvia D. from Ebay...They'll ship it as long as you don't live in a state that has outlawed it. It's supposed to be pretty complicated to grow, but I haven't had any problems with it so far. I'm going to try and make a nicer tent for him eventually. SOmething with clear plastic and a zipper, I think.
