The pink crepe myrtle and yellow Knock Out roses are in their splendor now.

I took a photo of Old Glory during the 4th of July. She proudly waves near our garage.

I began adding little miniature garden elements to my pots this year. Here are some mushrooms that I found. I know, I am entering into my second childhood.

While it was hot outside, I decided that I would work on some indoor gardening projects. Here is a “fairy” garden scene that I made from ideas I found on Pinterest. The house is an upside down flower pot and the mushrooms are wooden door knobs.

Here is my succulent plant collection. The aloe plants are very hardy. I keep giving away starters by twisting off the babies. I don’t know the names of all of them but each variety is very interesting.

Here is my herb collection. I have some thyme and chocolate mint growing in pots with flowers on my deck. It smells heavenly out there.

For those who are wondering about the progress of my garden, I have been meaning to post pictures during the summer while the flowers are at their peak.  Here is how it looks right now.
