I thought I’d give you a tour of my garden this August.
The goldfish are doing well, I have four. However, one of them is turning pink. I’m not sure why. It’s pictured above. It started out gold with a touch of white. Perhaps it’s maturing to all white?
Below is a photo taken from our 2nd floor deck of the backyard hill. Morning glory is growing over the arch at the gate. It just began to bloom this week.
The front entrance is beautifully green this time of year.
Thats a pineapple plant in the center. I started it from one of the pineapples I bought at the store last year. Cut off the top and place it in the dirt. Keep it watered and it will root. It is a tropical plant so keep it inside during the winter if you get cold weather.
I have a grapevine that grows on my back deck. It climbs up to the second level and gives us much needed privacy from the neighbors. We live in a townhome and the decks are much to close for my comfort but this grapevine sure helps. I can go out on my deck in the morning in my pj’s to water plants — a true luxury!
The grapes are a seedless concord and delicious! They are ripe now so I usually pick a bunch to eat with my morning tea.
This plant arrangement by the kitchen window attracts hummingbirds which we can watch from the window.
This scarlet runner bean is blooming near the kitchen window. The hummingbird usually makes a stop here too. I’ll post a photo of the bird in the future.
Hope you enjoyed this quick tour around my garden.
