It’s been a rather dreary week weather-wise, so I’ve chosen some bright pictures of flowers and fruit from the Demo Garden for this week’s Friday PhotoEssay.
My photo is a little blurry, but I just could resist this brightly colored Angelonia. I was working in a greenhouse the first summer this plant was on the market for annual sales, and I really love the delicate florets on the flower stalk.
Not as showy, but no less beautiful! The cherry tomatoes are going to town putting on flowers. I have a feeling we will have more tomatoes than we care to have this summer!
The beans are also going crazy with blooms. Anyone up for bean picking in a couple weeks?
The anise hyssop is starting to bloom. This is one of my favorite herbs to just walk through the garden and pick a leaf to eat. I’m not a huge fan of the anise flavor, but this herb is so sweet it’s okay!
Do you see that flash of red among the leaves? The currants are just starting to ripen. The translucent red currants are almost too beautiful to eat!
I’ll leave you today with these gorgeous pentas!
Have a great weekend!
