????????? ANY GUESSES...

I haven't a clue what this is growing....I know it looks like a sunflower BUT take a close look at the flowers that are blooming on it... Strangest sunflower I ever did see.  It is a "volunteer" - which means I didn't plant it - it just grew!!  Any ideas???

I have a lot of "strange" growings in my gardens this year....but the Fairy garden is looking great...

Honest to goodness fairies live here - and are hiding under that thyme!!!

Does anyone recognize this Herb?

I thought I would post this picture of my cat taking a nap in my little herb garden. Judy had posted some pictures of some antique wash stands and I thought I would show you what I did with mine. It makes a great herb garden.

Tomato Blight, Again

Our plum tomato plant has the same blight that the tomato plants has last year. I'm so mad I could spit (not really). But, when we bought our plants this year, we were very aware to buy local plants, supposedly the plants last year were not local. I have nursed this plant long enough. It gets these great looking RED tomatos, but don't look at the bottoms!! They are rotten and mushy, not very attractive. So, hello trash can for you tomato plant. A pepper plant might meet you there if it doesn't fly right!! Is anyone else having problems?
