Flowers in the Garden ~ Cucurbits

Because I’m a gardening geek, I thought I’d compare flowers in my garden based on plant family and note the similarities. Yesterday, I shared pictures of my garden flowers in the Nightshade family. (If you missed it, click here.) As similar as they were, there are even more similarities in the flowers of the Cucurbit family. Cucurbit flowers!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 4/28/14

It’s been a busy week here on my homestead. I have all my seed in the ground except for some of my herbs. I’ll be sowing my chamomile and medicinal herbs after work today. My additional culinary herbs will be sown along my front walkway today, too, if I have time. My transplants are adjusting well to the outside world, and much of what I’ve planted is germinating and growing. Come take a look. This week’s garden pictures!
