New Greeters



With the weather conditions finally changing, I have made my biannual change to the front flower beds.  Previous heroes have been marigolds and patunias.  This year I'm trying these beautiful Zenias. 
They come in red and pink but this yellow/orange is, in my opinion, the brightest.  As long as the heat doesn't return, and we don't get frost in the winter, these should last until spring. 

  

I love the mini flowers within.

What about vegetables and herbs? Do you grow basil? Rosemary? Lavender? Eggplants? Tomatoes? Peppers? Cilantro?
