These are the 4 o'clock flowers - Before my Nana (grandma) died a few years ago, she gave us a bag full of '4 o'clock' flower seeds. We held onto them for a few years and never really did anything with them.. until this year. Brian planted the seeds in his seed-starter kit, and we were able to sprout several flowers from them. Pretty neat after 4 years of sitting in a plastic bag - and it makes me think of my Nana every time I see these flowers. They are called "4'clock flowers" because they open up at, you guessed it, late in the day around 4 o'clock! This isn't the greatest picture but that's them - They get to be about 3-4 feet tall if you stake them!

We picked just a few tomatoes the other day!
In case you missed it, I posted "What do I do with all of my tomatoes from the garden" the other day, including my recipe for my delicious spaghetti sauce! It is worth checking out! Click Here.
I just have to tell ya..your photography just keeps getting better and better. The light in these photos is so exquisite. Great job!ReplyDelete
beautiful pictures once again! I think you should be a photographer for a living. Have you ever thought about it?ReplyDelete
What a pretty place to spend time. My garden was a total flop this year, too hot! (and maybe too pregnant to maintain it, too ;)) Enjoy your bounty!ReplyDelete
You are so lucky to have fresh foods! When tomatoes are good I could bite into them like an apple (love 'em)! And there is definitely nothing better than fresh herbs! They are so much better to cook with! I love that one of J waiting for the water to come out! Oh and that flower shot (the third one down) is amazing!ReplyDelete
