The BIG Bloom Color Show

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Nasturtiums are putting on the most AMAZING backyard show at the moment -- and show absolutely no signs of slowing down...






Despite the freaky spring weather of cold and rain -- the Wonderful Pomegranate is starting to bust loose with a gorgeous springtime bloom...









Hard Pomegranate Cider for lunch anyone?

That pom sure does have beautiful blooms!

My yard is looking so pitiful. And it may continue too without a summer:(

Don't worry Roya! Highs are supposed to hit the mid 80's by Saturday! And it's forecast to stay in the eighties through all of next week!

Hang in there!

My Pom is almost a foot tall after 2years in the ground. I'm thinking I've got it in the wrong spot... anyways I'm jealous and those Nasturtiums do look nice, great blend of colors there.

Mike,

I'm having incredible luck with this Pom. It's six or seven times the size it was when I planted it three years ago.

I guess you could say it's in a good spot.

Trust me -- I could show you pictures of a near-dead cherry tree -- or two dead avocado trees.

I have my failures. Many of them.

Bill

I've read that planting nastursiums under fruit trees repells borers. I'm considering it.

Your Nasties are gourgous, mine are doing really well too! They have taken over the ugly chain link fence that belongs to the neighbor! Yay!
