Ladies and Gents, My Garden.

I dont really show my garden much here. Errr I dont even have a garden to speak of really haha.
Just some potted plants that I have been taking care of for some time now.
The strawberry is a year old and then some, and it started from a wee bit small cup to a persil tub to a proper big pot now.
It didnt gave me any fruit last year but I am so happy that I have some fruit buds already and hopefully they get to mature and we can consume some fresh berries later.
Surprisingly I have sunflower which I cant remember where I acquired from. Probably some freebies from stores.
They are tall and looks so promising. My son is wishing for a flower. And he is quite religious in watering them.
Needless to say that he owns them. I need to ask if he gave them names!

I also have a tomato that is really fruitful! Right about now I counted about 20 new ones! How awesome is that?
I have gotten some new seeds and planted and transffered them already to a bigger pot.
They also look like they are going to give me some nice tomatoes fingers crossed.

I have one potted lavender but I think it is way past its prime now as it stopped flowering already.
A bleeding heart thats so rich in leaves and not so in flowers!

I have one indoor orchid that we got from Ikea. I was so happy to get it then got heartborken when I ummmm accidentally cut the stem with flower off.
But now the flowers are back and hopefully they are here to stay! And I promise to be careful next time as the stem is really delicate this one.

I really feel inferior to the other gardens in this linky but I am just so proud that my green babies are doing well.
And that is how my garden is growing!

I haven't seen a strawberry growing in a pot before. Your plants looks like they are in full bloom. -Anna xx

This is a sweet post, and just keep to run you don't need masses of space to produce fruit and veg, just green fingers!

You have a wonderful garden. Mine is dying from the bottom up. Although I have gotten a few string beans and cherry tomatoes. :( Thanks for sharing.

I think small gardens can be rather wonderful - and fruitful as you're showing. It's also lovely that your son is taking care of them.

Great pics, I love plants, it's a nice way to care nature and make a contribution for a better ecological world! Thanks for visiting.

I love sunflowers once they do flower. I think they look like one big, happy smile. I hope yours flowers soon.

It looks like a perfectly good garden to me :) And it sounds like you'll have lots of tomatoes - yours are much bigger than ours! I saw your comment on my blog about garlic. If you plant it around October/November this year you'll have lots of lovely garlic next Summer. I grew it in one pots one year which worked quite well - slightly smaller bulb but lots of flavour! Nice to see your garden this week.

great potted garden!

I'm sure your potted garden is a lot more fruitful and well cared for than many big gardens! We're growing sunflowers too, the flowers are almost about to open! Christine@afamilyday #pocolo

I too do not have a garden proper, but a lot of fun with containers. You are much more proactive than me though. I mostly rely on garden centres to do all the growing from seed. Clearly this is the wrong approach because your tomatoes are much more productive than mine! Cool!

I love how you have grown the strawberries, from a small pot to how they are now. Our tomato plant is looking promising too - it's such ah good feeling to see things grow and know you were responsible for that!
My Ozzy has a sunflower growing too, he is bursting to see it flower! Happy times - thank you for sharing your garden x

Your plants look really nice, especially the orchid! I wish I had at least a little green thumb, but sadly, I don't. #PoCoLo

This is so cool! I wish I have space for a garden. Currently, we have a pepper plant but have been keeping it inside. Hope I can have other vegetables and herbs in the future.

What a lovely collection of plants! I spent awhile tonight in the dark watering everything in the front and on my writing porch. Tomorrow, Sweet Husband is going to plant the 50 or so canna lilies & five crinium that we scored for free today (we're going to use them to start disguising our gross chain link fence). I told him that it is time for us to draw out a plan for what we want the gardens to look like. I enjoy digging in the dirt - it makes me happy. I hope it does for you as well ;)

Thank you for joining us for Photo Friday this week!

Aww you have a sweet little garden :)

One day I will share my garden pictures but at the minute there is nothing growing at all, well just a bit of grass !!

Lovely garden,Merlinda. It's one thing I am not very good at haha. I keep buying plants, some of them gives me pretties and some don't. I am so bad in looking after them. I did had some strawberries and tomatoes this year and loads of plums. ;)

You're plants are doing so well! Well done you (Muslim Mummy)

Lovely garden
My first visit here and the garden I see looks lovely!

Fab sunflowers - hope they do flower after all the attention they've received - and I love that bleeding heart, so pretty. #hdygg

Wow you're way more green fingered than I am. Anything I manage to grow ends up eaten by slugs! Well done #SharewithMe

Your garden looks fab! We planted a few sprigs of mint before we went on holiday. Came back 8 days later and we have a massive pot of mint!! And it smells amazing :)
