New arrivals

Sometimes.. I think my grocery store know just how to get me.... just when I think I'm done with the garden for the year.... they go and put out a whole display of large potted perennials...
You know there was no way I was leaving the store with out at least one...
Such a pretty foxglove
Or maybe two...
A nice showy Delphinium
They are in nice large pots, so they can stay there for now.. but when things start to cool off and die down, I've got a lot of rearranging to do in the gardens!

Elswhere...
The Gladiolus are putting on a good show
Tux hasn't managed to destroy his cat nip yet, and it's blooming with these delicate little flowers.
The butterfly bush is trying very hard to flower. And it seems to have put up a bunch of new flower spikes, so I'm hopeful it's going to be okay.

And check out the Nasturtiums
 They were barely through the soil less than a week ago. Amazing! These would be another great plant to grow with kids - just for the fast results

Oh - and tomato season has started...
These ones got chopped up and put on Nachos Supreme the other day - but there are lots more coming.

You definitely have a green thumb! Isn't tomato season the best?

I am the same way. Can't resiste a good plant, no how.
