At this point you’ve probably discovered that I am an avid horticulturist (fancy word for ‘gardener’). This year I planted Vinca vines at the top of my lattice panels (which love to grow downwards) and Morning Glory vines at the bottom of the lattice (and they love to grow upwards). In addition, we have plenty representative members of the squash family and legume family of plants, such as beans, pumpkins, cucumbers, and so on (note: I think I could drop a bean seed on my driveway and it would find a way to germinate). In addition, I’ve got Marigolds reproducing all summer so they are everywhere (note: Marigolds, Begonias, and Petunias are relatively difficult to grow from seed by the amateur gardener in a greenhouse. However, they’re easy to re-seed outside during the summer growing season). As a result, our deck and waterfall are flourishing with greenery this year.
I’ve inserted a photo below that gives a nice view of what I get to see from my easy chair… My wife calls it our ‘Gatsby Garden’.
