  1. Kim, I am back in town and catching up on all my blog reading! How exciting that you hope to be finished with your gardening soon. My garden is starting to burn out with the hotter temps, but the watermelon, cucumbers, musk melons and pumpkins are all growing together….I just joined your Facebook gardening group too….so hopefully you’ll accept me. Funny you mention the amaryllis, I had one pop up in the middle of a large bed of ground cover. No idea how it got there, but what a pleasant surprise.

    1. Isn’t that always the best when something starts growing in your garden that you have never seen before? I believe I did accept you and looking forward to you sharing some of your knowledge. Be sure to share your latest blog post on providing shade to your veggies. People would love that.

    1. Thank you, Chas. I feel like I have not done anything but work in the garden in the last few weeks. It is crazy, but so rewarding. Hope to visit with you next week.

  2. Kim I can’t get over all your gardening. It’s so amazing. Thank you so much for the beautiful feature today too. Happy Saturday!

  3. Your gardens are filling in beautifully!!! I can’t wait to see all your seed starts bloom! That bird house is amazing. I love how it looks in the garden. Like you I’ve been crazy busy in the garden this week and am getting ready to get back outside now! I love this time of year. xoxo

    1. This is such a fun time of year out in the garden Stacy! I can’t wait to see how both of our cut flower gardens turn out this year.
