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 ~ 4/7/14

It’s been a busy week in the garden. The temperature was in the mid-80’s, and there was much to do. I was hoping to get some of my seed in the ground this past weekend, but that didn’t happen. I spent twelve hours in the garden, and it was all spent preparing some of my raised beds. (I still have four more to do!) Why did it take me so long? See my post later this week, “The Good Idea that Wasn’t.” For now, let me share the good things from my garden.

This week’s garden pictures!
