What is growing in KeeWee's Garden (KeeWee's Garden)

The fragrance from the lilies, is so sweet and delightful, as you walk up the driveway to the front door.


The two tomato plants are now five feet tall, and still growing taller. I have a yellow pear, which I discovered last year, on one side of the pot, and Super sweet 100 on the other.
Both of these tomatoes are super sweet and are abundant producers of small succulent fruits.


Super sweet cherry tomato, well on the way to giving us tomatoes for our salads, or to just to pop in the mouth and enjoy the taste. There is nothing I like better, than the taste of a sun warmed tomato. picked and eaten straight from the plant.


As much as I like the pink Hydrangea, I will change the soil PH so the blooms will be blue in the future.



There is a show of color from the red gladioli in the front garden. This will be the third year for blooms from the red Glads.


This yellow Gladioli is new to the garden, and now I know I can leave glads in over the winter months, I plan on planting many more.


I experimented with growing Cosmos in pots and they are doing extremely well. I do have chicken wire around the pot so the rabbits don't make a meal out of the plants.

KeeWee's Garden is on a distinguished road
July 25th 2007 (KeeWee's Garden)

I have this pot of petunias sitting on top of one of the fence posts surrounding one of the gardens.


One of my favorite Hostas.


If you look carefully at the globe flower in the back, you can just make out a bee busily gathering pollen.


A pretty little patch of flowers.


I had to put the wagon behind the fence as a couple of the wild rabbits were taking an interest in the flowers.


My spinach is doing extremely well in this styrene container. I pick enough spinach every couple of days to make a small salad for myself.
You can see the drip watering system I have installed to water the containers on the deck.


There are two tomato plants in this pot and they are now taller than the wire cage, I thought was going to be too tall when I bought it. I am now glad i did get the largest wire cage to support the tomatoes.


I am happy to see the Elephant Ears have come back this year. They were left in the garden over the winter, and being close to the house probably gave them a little protection from the elements.

Lush and lovely


Beside the carport, a new garden spot.


Ferns, hosta bamboo


Red dahlias and nemesias


The pink and purple flowers are called Stock. Besides being rather lovely to look at, they have a delicate fragrance.



Flower pot full of succulents, between daylillys and lavender


When I cleaned out the back of the carport, I discovered an old garden gate which has been put to a good use.


The garden gate, is now a support for this rose.

A pot of hen & chickens perched atop a fence post.


I don't know what this plant is, but it sure has a lovely colored flower


Nicotiana and petunias


Red Nicotiana


Peach colored nicotiana


A new plant, in rear to the right.


This large pot of plants is next to the front door, and makes a very nice display.


Planters by the front door to the house.


The frogs have their crossing too.

The lillies are very tall this year, and the gladioli made it through the winter as I hoped they would. I really did not want to have to dig them up and store them over winter.


I have made use of this old tree stump as a planter.


Hosta hiding behind lavender


A good idea to plant nicotiana in between yellow gladioli.


Front garden


Front entrance to house


Pretty day lilly


Gotta have a crossing for the bunnies


A few plants in a large pot, protected from the rabbits with chicken wire
