I spent some time walking around looking at everything growing in the garden the other day. I’m not sure why, but I am always amazed and excited when I realize that a plant is bigger, has more green or even has fruit. Here’s a haiku and gallery with captions.
Beauty surrounds me
The garden blossoms and grows
Our sweet leaf plant…otherwise known as stevia.
A volunteer squash growing from the compost pile. I’m almost positive it is spaghetti squash as that is what grew here last year.
This is our pretty mashua. The leaves remind me of a clover.
A rather stern look from Mildred.
They were talking to each other. Gossiping I’m sure.
I believe this is the cantaloupe that I planted last week.
This is one of the many varieties of squash that I planted.
Zucchini squash leaves
These are the vine peach leaves. It’s a type of cantaloupe that tastes like a peach/mango hybrid. SO excited for this one.
Oh this? This is the celery I planted from a kitchen scrap. It’s going even stronger than the one I did last year.
I thought this was creeping myrtle but it does not look like the pictures I have found so I’m not sure what it is. I didn’t know that it flowered until this year, and, if it wasn’t trying to strangle my strawberries and roses, I might let it be.
