Bloomin Idiots!

Even though these pictures are at least 10 days old, I still wanted to give you a glimpse of the blooms. It's a glorious thing, my Valentine's greenhouse. It's like a garden on NOS! Here are the mixed baskets we planted a few weeks ago. I am going to hate to sell these, I really wanna keep them all!

We are going to have tomatoes before long..Jo has promised My John fried green tomatoes, so tomatoes are a new priority in the yard!

Well, he never promised me a rose garden, but I did manage to swing this beauty in the deal. I would love to have a pair of shoes in this exact shade. I would say Scarlet, what would you say?

Hold on, we didn't grow this one, but I want to tell it's story. These washed up from the houses destroyed down the road on the Gulf. There in everyone's yard here, and some folks think they are weeds. They're someone's Irises that washed up in the storm surge of Katrina. The neighbors mow them down, we are letting them grow.

Been spending some time here lately, getting a little warm here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Love these mini-petunias.

This is a squash ya'll, Nice bloom uh? The little squash just pops out the middle. I'll show ya soon!

This is my favorite of the mixed baskets we planted...

I'll be here reading Twilight this weekend? Laci's coming tomorrow, should be a little excitement on the back porch! Have a gorgeous weekend! May the sun shine some special rays on you my blogger friends!
Coffee is at 2pm, stop on by anytime!

Your flowers are all so gorgeous! I have no green thumb whatsoever, but I'm determined to learn this spring. My little one and I are off to the Farmer's Market tomorrow for some gardening tips.
Have a good weekend!
