'maters & bumbles

I know, it's all about the backyard these days.

What a difference -April



The yellows in the hanging basket on the deck are doing well.

George put a little trellis sort of short fence to contain the nasturtium. The ladybird cosmos in the flower planter are blooming like crazy!

Look what I found in the flower today - looks like a bumble napping to me.

We now have 4 'maters growing as I found a new teeny one this morning.

It looks like we are getting our first successful zucchini. It's a learning process as the blossoms only open in the morning and helping them along by manually pollinating them is a little tricky. The 'male' and 'female' blossoms have not been open at the same time until yesterday.
