100 Things that make me smile!

Got smiles this weekend after visiting my garden beds. The flower beds in both locations are doing well. Either the mint is driving the iguanas away or the storm removed some of the more troublesome creatures. The flowers are really starting to establish themselves and fill in the beds.
The flowers are the vegetable garden are doing well, too. The storm didn't seem to bother them and in fact they are thriving without the usual insects, butterflies and caterpillars to feast on them. Perhaps they will get a jump on the caterpillars and gain some growth before they get munched on again.
It is especially nice to see the bits of color and not so much dead and dying debris (which is gratefully disappearing).

It is better than the chewed garden of a few weeks ago. It should get better as more of the plants produce blooms.

That's one thing I like about my home. It is green most of the year and splattered with color. I'm hoping to start planting my vegetables this week in the small garden and my class to plant at the end of October when the new garden construction is finished.

Yes, it is really filling in. More plants survive the weather and the critters each time and establish themselves.

Were you ever able to identify that plant in your yard?

No...Before we purchased the house, We had been informed we have a cherry tree from Italy. Then we found a pear hanging from another tree, we have a pear tree! To be honest whenever I walk under the pear tree, the famous Christmas song starts running in my head. :D

The other bushes...one of them can be elderberry without berries, massive area with leaves of mint and celery, Margaret, bush might-be-nightshade and a plenty of Scottish thistle.

I might need to ask you the name of bushes again. Thanks.

I'll do my best with the identifying.

I love thistle. I know it's prickly and for most considered a weed but it so interesting and different.
