Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:  
Welcome to the garden tour!  Since most of the flowers look the same as the last tour, I am showing the section Ive avoided fer a few weeks.  From back here, ya can see the 2 sections of Black Eyed Susans (the 2nd is in the far back right) with the ornge Zinnia in the middle.  Its the cheerfulest part of the garden right now.

I had a reason ta kind of not show the Zinnias recently.  Ya can see in this old picture from June that they looked nice when first planted.  Not very full, but nice an orderly an clean...

But look at THIS picture from last week!  They are all full of WEEDS.  I hadda bug TBT fer 3 WEEKS ta get in there an get those weeds OUT!
So he finally did, and see how they look today?  MUCH nicer.  That empty spot in front is where he planted a Wave Petunia that he saved indoors from last Fall and it finally died.  Well, it was an annual flower, so I guess it figured it had done its best and was too old ta keep blooming.
Come an look at the Zinnias close up.  They are very pretty an lush an we had never grown them before.  We looked inna catalog an saw there are other colors, so we are gonna try several different ones next year.
It is nice an sunny an dry today, so lets have some snacks out on the lawn!  We have chopped-up chick-hen breast sprinkled with bacon bits ta nom on, along with Niptinis made with leafs we picked just today.

Thank you all for coming!

We think your zinnias look gorgeous (after you got TBT to weed them-- teehee) we are already noticing the plants seem to sense fall is not far off, hard to believe Sept is this weekend!

Good work to get TBT to weed the garden - it looked much better after he'd done it.

Your zinias look wonderful now that TBT has weeded them. How did you get him to weed? Our garden is in dire need of weeding, and we obviously aren't using the right motivation.

Ah yes, the weeds. Been there, done that. My peep is even growing 'em on purpose now. MOUSES!

We're glad you bugged TBT to clear off those weeds choking the poor zinnias. The zinnias look so much happier now!

But do those zinnias taste orange?
