Just an update
Well everything is growing and doing well in my gardens! I haven't done a whole lot in my gardens this year. I've been doing alot of scrapbooking and staying indoors since I've not been feeling well lately. As you can tell this year I've kinda gotten hung up on vines!!:) I have 4 clematis(2 blue and 2 pink), corkscrew vine, passion vine, gloriosa lily, wisteria, cardinal vine, cup and saucer vine, honeysuckle, moon vine( I have white ones and lavendar ones)heavenly potato vine and of course morning glories.
My blanket flowers are doing great!
I'm growing a type of Zinna I've never grown before this year. Peppermint Stick is the name if I recall rightly.
I have another one blooming now that is white with red stripes. They are really pretty, the photo does not do them justice!
This is my lavendar lantana. I have a little shephard's hook with a windchime hanging on it. Callie runs by it and hits it with her paw to make it make noise!hehe
Here's a few more of Callie being a silly willy girl!!
This is my new ice plant. It has green and white leaves and it's blooms are small and purple. It is a eye pleasing combination.
Our veggie garden is doing good although we have not weeded it at all this year:( It really needs to be weeded as the weeds are out growing the plants. It is not like us to neglect our gardens but this year has not left us very healthy! We did dig our potatoes last weekend and our plants produced 30 pounds!! Which we thought was very excellent since we only planted the eyes of 3 pounds of starter potatoes! Our squash are starting to produce and I can't wait to have a big helping of squash cooked with lots of butter and sugar! Yummy!! Or fried would be nice too! We also have corn growing and our green beans are starting to bloom. The collard and mustard greens need to be picked. I'm not too big on greens but hubby loves them so I'll cook a batch for him soon!! We also have okra, cantaloupe and watermelon growing. The snow killed all but one of our cucumber vines but hopefully the one will produce a few. Well that's about all I have to update for now.

Looking good Jubabe. Callie is a cutie!
Thank you Netty!
Things have really grown since I was at your home the last time everything looks so pretty.Callie is being her usual self.
Everything looks great Julie, I bought an ice plant for the first time this year, I love it but it is not variegated and I don't always get to see the flowers, they open after I leave and are closed by the time I get home. I have several plants that do that. Callie is a sweetie pie. Can't wait to see all your vines blooming. What is a heavenly potato vine, never heard of it that I know of.
Your garden is looking so pretty, Jujube! How cool that it's kitty-friendly! My kitty tends to, um, "disrespect" my garden- maybe she thinks she's fertilizing it?
Sharon a heavenly potato vine is the vine that gets the ugly bumpy potatoes that everyone says is a nuisance, but I love it and it does seem to behave itself rather nicely in my garden. It has beautiful heart shaped leaves.
