Backyard Pics and Zinnia Seed Update

So, do you want to see how well my zinnia seeds are doing???

Umm...yeah...I've given up on seeds. Lol! This is after about a month and obviously something has been eating them. So, I made a trip to the garden center and picked up my favorite go-to flower, the Purple Gomphrena.

Please take note of my fancy Garfield gardening shovel. ;) I think it originally came with a set we bought for the kids to use at the beach, but it works perfectly for planting my flowers. 

It's funny because I got this six pack of Gomphrena for less than I paid for a few packets of seeds. I need to learn to just go with what works, especially in the garden. :) 

The Gomphrena does so well here. It's heat tolerant, constantly has beautiful blooms ALL summer long, and it even hates to be watered a lot. Perfect, huh?

Here are a few more pics of my backyard right now...

My mom gave me this sweet basil, so I planted it on the patio. I love basil.

And look who keeps coming back... It's my shamrock plant from last year! I kept pulling it up and discarding it, but it just keeps coming back strong, so I decided to leave it. I actually love shamrocks and the pretty white flowers are a bonus. 

My lantana is blooming a lot earlier this year. 

If you look closely in the foreground of the pic above, you'll see where my hubby planted some of the shamrocks I kept pulling up. They seem to grow anywhere around here! 

Well, that's about it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
