My Earth Day contribution to my garden

This weekend I took it easy around the garden, it was a nice weekend to reflect on what a blessing it is to have a garden, and the responsibility that we all share in keeping our planet green and healthy for all future generations.

I moved all my herbs to a sunny corner. I keep all my herbs in containers so I can move it around the garden, except for the Rose Mary bush.

I planted Sun Flower seedling in my old tomato bed. This is the first time that I am growing Sun Flowers this late in the year, will see how they do in our summer heat.

I did some maintenance to my Coleus; they took a beating last week from a storm that past by.

I added a new ornament in the garden, I call it “Los Tres Amigos” I found these cute frogs at BJ’s, they make a great addition to my collection of frogs.

I love that bed of coleus, looks very tropical. Coleus never does well for me, unfortunately, neither indoors or out.
The froggies are a riot! We have a frog theme in our bathroom.

The coleus look good, I would never have known that a storm had wreaked havoc there.

Those frogs are fun!!!!

Good name for the frogs, they are cute. A fun addition to your garden. Wish I could have some coleus here; but I don't have a shady spot to put them in. Maybe if the landlord gets the roof put on over part of our patio, then I will get some.

Love the Frog Friends - Happy to see someone else trying things a bit 'late' in Florida. We're north of you and my planting timing is still way off. Pretty border..
