Garden Awards

 This tidal wave petunia from Lowes gets the "best bloom for the buck" award.  I paid 8.98 for ONE plant and griped about it to whoever would listen.
 This one is a goldy honey bear sunflower from Botanical Interest Seeds.  It gets the "little yellow birds favorite" award.
 This is actually two sharing this award.  It's called "We can all get along together."
 This one gets the "new guy in the garden" award.  It's dinosaur kale.  It lives up to its name.
This one gets the "I'll show YOU" award.  I considered pulling it up everyday.  You might say it has bloomed where it was planted, except I didn't plant it.

We had a big rain today  so I am writing to my friends insteadof dragging the garden hose around the backyard.  I hope everyone is having a good summer!!

Your award winners are all very deserving and your garden looks great. Water levels here are very low so they've put a ban on all sprinkling and watering.

They are all wonderful ! Amazing how that sunflower grew in the crack. Don't pull it out. Glad you got a good rain there, we had a short shower but really need much more.

Your post made me smile! I sometimes think that plants are too costly at the nurseries........but every time I do get one that I cannot live without.......they always do extremely well. Love all of your pretty blooms.........I think you get the " Green Thumb" award! Have a great weekend!

They are all wonderful, but I so love sunflowers! Love the yellow finches that come in and eat the seeds. Janice
