You'll be happy to note we even had some flowers bloom! I guess that organic worm poop made it happy.

All I can think of is that song Sex Farm from This Is Spinal Tap.

If you want something more substantial with purple flowers, flox are bushier and get significantly larger.

Well it's gardening time again! Maybe we can bring back the gardening thread here. We have the vegetable garden planted here, although we cut back from previous years. We're also doing some landscaping in an area where our water lines broke so it was all dug up.

Hmmm....

Well I had to dig up an old shrub that pretty much died. It had been there for years but something bad happened to it and I could not get it to come back. So, something else in its place but not sure what yet. I have a small shrub in a pot from a cutting that will grow in anything and is very forgiving on hedging. Dunno what it is but it works good for privacy shrubs.

What else.... an older rosemary shrub died. Dunno what happened to that one either but its a goner. Something bad happened to a year old gardenia so I put it back in a pot... hopefully it will recover. Possibly a gopher.

Cilantro plants are doing nice. Chives also. Tomato plants are just starting to grow. Oregano plant is doing well. Tried a few other herbs also but none of them worked.

The cat nip has spread nicely, and I've stuck a bunch of rogue lamb's ears in with it. The jacob's ladder is bouncing up nicely, and the columbine took off this year.
Alas, however, the irises didn't really bloom this year - I had a wad of them about 2'x3' and managed to hack it apart and spread it around... but it's pissed at me.
The lavender is spreading like heck, too!

What kind of irises did you have? My mom had trouble with Siberian Irises not blooming for the longest time, and she just ended up tossing them.

These are bearded iris, yellow and purple. Last year they were a riot of color, so hopefully they'll be back. I was wrong, though - when I went out to water this morning, there was one tiny little iris next to the salvia! I guess they've forgiven me.

I'm looking forward to the day when I can have a vegetable garden. We are renting, but at least there's some flower bed area where I can play. When we lived on the military base, we weren't supposed to dig next to the house because of toxins...and you couldn't dig up the yard, either! So, we planted a banana plant and a couple of papayas...was very nice.
