Week Six

Photos from the sixth week in the garden are up, spanning April 18-24, and have been tagged "Week Six" in my Gardening 2010 album in my Picasa Web Albums.

Here's a shot from yesterday of my original bed. Lots of growth to note, and a trellis was saved from the curbside on trash day - thanks to Kim. More on that later, I'm sure.

I found these periwinkle (as Kim calls them) or vinca (as I call them) volunteers in Kim's bed this week. There's plenty more returning, too. So I snagged these first three, in hopes of transplanting them to the extended bed to keep these resilient flowers coming.

This is my largest coleus. I transplanted him Sunday. But here, he's shown in his original pot.

This is my largest zinnia, which I believe I direct sowed into my bed. It's a little lanky, long in the tooth perhaps, maybe it's the wind or the fertilizer, but it's really healthy.

This is a "Lollipop Gerbera Raspberry" gerbera jamesonii that Corina and I bought at Lowe's last year when it was discounted to, like 50 cents or something. We bought a companion one that's white with red accents that I put in my bed this year. It has grown a lot so far this spring.
