As you can see, we have raised planter beds. This enables people who are in wheelchairs, or have back or balance problems to be able to participate.
These are "Shirley Poppies"... they're one of my favorites. They remind me of crepe paper flowers! They re-seed themselves every year. They look pretty weedy until they actually bloom, but the payoff is great when they do bloom!
Can you believe how tall these sunflowers are?! They're taller than the awning! We've planted various bell peppers on the front row... and nasturtiums too. I love to mix flowers in with the veggies.
Here's a close-up of a flower pot... petunias, Marguerite daisies, and salvia.
And here's a close-up of our tallest sunflower... the variety is called "Mammoth".
...And here's some more sunflowers. I think this variety is called "Autumn Sunset" or something like that.
...More "Shirley Poppies"... with a zinnia hiding in the back.
...And of course, some lavender. Oh! You can't really see in the pictures, but we have about five heirloom tomato plants, a zucchini plant, and a pattipan squash plant. We also have a variety of fruit trees. I'll update you with some photos, as things start to really produce.
