First up are the Marigolds. This year I planted two different seed mixes: Burpee's Mixed Colors and the Flower Power Mix. Overall they have been performing well, with the exception of a few plants that were attacked by earwigs.
Next up are the Nasturtiums (Cornucopia: Tall Single Mixed Colors, Tropaeolum majus). These little beauties are flourishing. I grew them from seed and transplanted the seedlings as companions. They are blooming all over the garden and are a nice complement to the squash plants.
Speaking of squash plants, they are healthy and strong. The yellow flowers above are from one of our Cornucopia Table Queen plants. The flowers have a ruffle along the edges and are a little fancier then the zucchini flowers. Also in the photo is the lovely California Poppy that just showed up the in garden. The upper right is the fiery red bloom of our Wonderful Pomegranate tree.
I know there are a lot of reds, oranges, and yellows out there. However, there are a few cooler colored flowers. The lavender bloom is from a wild garlic that found a home in the shade of an oak tree. The pink bell shaped flowers are from an unidentified plant that is growing near the wild garlic. If anyone knows what this is, please let me know. Last, is the white bloom from our garlic. I planted garlic and onions in a little patch early this year.
