Thursday in the Garden With ArtyMouse & Socks

 The roses are just gorgeous. We love them and this one smells divine.

 The new Cuphea is doing well. When we first got it, it wasn't doing so good. Mommy had to water it everyday until it's roots got bigger, and even then it looked like it was going to die. But it didn't and now it is growing and blooming nicely.

 We are hoping this bed will do well this year. We has added some new stuffs to it.

Take a good sniff of this rose. 

Socks is basking in the sun and enjoying the perfumed air.

The Coral Honeysuckle has been attracting Hummers. Mommy actually got some pictures of the Hummers drinking out of the feeders. She isn't fast enough to get them on the flowers.

 I am chasing lizards. There must be a zillion that live in the Hummingbird Cottage. They are very tricky to catch.

Isn't this Clematis purrty?

I am going to take a break now. Does anyone  have any questions for me?

The Rooster Violets are doing good in this bed, they actually seem to be spreading. First time they have done that, so they must like this bed.

The Plumbago. I wonder how it got it's name? Does anyone know?

 Scylla is preparing refreshments up at the house if anyone is thirsty or hungry.

I am just going to take a nice dirt bath now. If anyone would like to join me you are welcome too, just watch out for the plants.
