Sunflower with Guest

I guess I have to get up at the butt-crack of dawn in order to catch a glimpse of the excitement in the garden.

Black Eyed Susan

One of three black eyed susan vines. This one has four true leaves at 17 days old. Too bad my gourd seeds are not doing as well, they haven't even germinated :(

New Coreopsis bud

Here is one of two new buds on this Mardi Gras flower. There was an unfortunate accident where the stem broke over and I thought this guy was a goner. I ended up trimming it down a bit to shorten it and a few days later these new flower buds sprouted. Hopefully these will make it further than the older ones did.

Catnip Flower

I'm not really sure what that red thing is on the left. Maybe those are the seeds. I can't really tell just yet.

This is the first picture that I am satisfied with taken out of my micro light studio. I will need to run to Micheal's in a little while to pick up some poster board for the background.

Here is the flower from another angle.


Took this just to pass some time by. My new Sage plant should be delivered today. :)

Runner Bean 'Scarlet' (Phaseolus coccineus).

This one is growing extremely fast and is already pretty big for only after a few days.

A little visitor to the Garden. Can you spot him?

He must love the smell of basil.

"Make sure you get my good side!"

Runner Bean 'Scarlet' (Phaseolus coccineus) 7 days after sprouting.

Love in a Puff vine 10 days after sprouting. His stem is so tiny, I hope he doesn't fall over!

Close-up of the leaf.

It doesn't look like much has changed with the Snapdragon cuttings. On one hand the leaves aren't really growing any more, but on the other hand they haven't withered away and died. I could pull it out of the soil and see if any roots are coming out, but I don't want to risk any damage. For now I will just keep them in the greenhouse and see what happens.

Here are Coriander flowers nesting all up in Basil plant's grill.

Another flower bud on the Coleus.

Wow, Mina's hair really is everywhere.
