how does your garden grow?

Well, we spent this weekend - well, most of Saturday anyway - working in the yard. We spent a lot of time trying to get the vegi garden ready to plant. I now have 8 tomatoes, 8 peppers, and two rows of beans successfully planted. In addition to the cucumbers, melon and squash of last weekend.
While Kim was pulling up sod I started noticing the beautiful colors around the yard - in flowers, ground cover and hanging baskets. I couldn't resist trying to capture them on film. Here are the results - tho the pictures in no way do justice to the plants. (Um, I just realized how much purple I have in my yard....)

And as you can see, Cairo was bored with it all, and found a cool pile of dirt to lay in. Dumb dog.....
