Riverside in Bloom

I've been doing this and doing that. Truly enjoying Riverside for the first time, appreciating the beauty like never before.


I've never had enough time to plant here. I'm normally only here for a mere week or two. It's been so wonderful. Kelly and Amy had saved some seed from a vine at Panini Pete's after I left several years' back.



I finally got the tiny seed planted. They popped up within a day!

Here is a couple of days' worth of sprouting. 




And then today, I transplanted them, only after a week or so. Fingers' crossed they survive!
Darlene found this little lady burying her eggs in her back yard. We had more spots, or so I thought, next to our house. Dar dug and dug, but nothing. I wanted baby turtles too!

 Dar's ducks.

My window box in the back yard seems to be doing better. Everything was in shock after I transplanted them.

Including the hibiscus. It really went down hill quick; but I'm happy to say, she looks good now.

 And here is a planting to remind me of Seymour, the snake Amy found in this spot several years back. Ew!

 My old ladder is filling out.






So, c'mon, walk this way. 
You're always welcome.

Hope this find you all well and enjoying the summertime.

Don't you just love it when seeds you plant actually grow? lol So many times I have no luck with them. All of your flowers are beautiful and I'm so glad to hear that you are having such a great time at Riverside...you deserve it:-) xoxo

My word is "chair." A cozy chair with Rosy.
