Flowers in the Garden ~ Nightshades

I may be showing my age by saying this, but when I was in school, I was one of the nerds. I think today the equivalent term would be geek. (Or is even that old school now?) Anyway, age has not changed me, and I now apply my nerdiness to gardening. Well, I thought it would be interesting to compare the flowers in my garden based on plant families. I’m sure I’m not the only Gardening Geek out there, so I’m going to share my comparison photos with you in a series of four articles. Today, we’ll look at the nightshade family. Nightshade 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!
