Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:

Welcome to the Garden Tour!  Today we are touring just one part of the garden.  TBT fergot it was Thursday an watered the other part all over so it is completely ICKY WET!

So see the lovely Sedum!  There are 3 of them, but this one looks best.  The flowers will get darker red real soon.  They are great plants cuz they just keep comin back evry year and dont mind iffen they get dry.  TBT tells me they are about 15 years old now.
The Mums are doin OK.  We never remember to trim them in June, so they get all leggy and there arent as many flowers that way.  But they still look nice.
The Marigolds have been bloomin all Summer, so thats always a cheerful-lookin spot.
These are Goldenrods.  No, they arent the things that make yer Beins sneeze.  Those are Ragweed, which grows in the same places as Goldenrod and flower at the same time.  But their flowers are nearly invisible, so Goldenrods get all the blame.  These have been bloomin less the past few years, so they may be ready ta just not come back some year soon.
Thats all the dry places we can get at today.  Lets lay around on the lawn and nibble some fresh Nip while we trade stories about ecitin things we've done lately!

Your flowers are looking bright and cheerful. Most of our bedding plants are still flowering but will soon be finished. Dad planted miniature Mums on Eric's grave in the Spring and the slugs chomped them. We didn't think they would do much but they are nice and bushy now with lots of very dark red flowers. I will have to tell mum to take a photo if it ever stops raining.

How full and beautiful your garden is. TBT has a green thumb but of course without Your snoopervison none of this would be as pretty! Teehee

Your sedum are just lovely! Our mom has been wanting to transplant some from her mom's garden, so after seeing your, maybe she will remember to do it.

We have some of those sedums too. One is so big it is falling over.

We are fashionably late but it is wet and cold here so we are comin' anyway to lounge in the yard.
We will be doing an exciting post soon. Mom found NIP growing in one of her flower pots under the flowers!! She planted nip last year in there and it failed to grow so that was a real surprise to find it happily growing last week!
Mom pinched back the top bud but will need your advice again about caring for it especially now that winter is coming.

Well if Shaggy & Scout are fashionably late, we're INEXCUSABLY late (glares at mommy). We gotted her back though.
She scrolled down and - just as she saw the goldenrod, she gave a HUGE (and we DO mean GINORMOUS) sneeze! Silly human!
