Sunflowers Galore

Enjoying the multiple sunflower heads on this plant.  Some critter is binging on the leaves...but that hasn't stopped the robustness of the blooms.

Lima Bean: Part Deux

Dainty now...these pods will become thick and tough.

The lima bean flowers cluster on the vine.

Pod of the lima bean.

Cosmos Is A Star Plant

This bee found a great place to hang out.
Cosmos are so dainty and colorful.

The white cosmos looks so delicate in the sun.

Seedlings sprouting from flowers which went to seed...already!
I had cosmos in my garden years ago.  They volunteer so readily.  I don't know why I stopped growing...but added them back this year.  Good decision.

The Spirit of the Lima Bean

First year to grow lima beans in the garden.  I am surprised by the toughness of the pod.

Sunny Sunflower

Tiny pollinator approaching on the right.

The sunflower is such a happy flower.  I haven't grown any in the garden for years so I am appreciating that the one I planted is sprouting flowers at each stalk/leaf junction.  I am going to have sunflower blooms for a long time!

Let's See What Is In The Seed Drawer

The seed drawer hold purchased seed as well as seeds harvested from the garden.
At the end of last season, I found some of the beans had dried on the vine.
Wow!  An impressive number of bean seeds.
Last year I had some beans which dried on the vine.  As I was cleaning up the garden, I broke away the dried pod and harvested the seeds.  When I decided to grow three sisters (beans, zucchini and corn) in my garden this year, I found the container with the yellow bean seeds and planted them about two weeks ago.

Stop back to this post tomorrow to see what happens when you mix dirt, water, seeds and sun!
