A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Touch Me Nots.....seeds from Patsy

This is my little garden by the drive. It isn't as nice as in past years, but the weather has been so hot. I just haven't watered it...so it's been pretty much on it's own. The new clematis is climbing the "homemade" trellis. I had two planted here, but when I weeded...I accidentally pulled one out. I was standing in a precarious position and was working fast.



Patsy http://pattypenny.blogspot.com/ sent me seeds, after I asked about her Touch Me Nots. I planted them in a container and have watched them grow so tall. I wondered when and if they would bloom. They are finally blooming. They look like little snapdragons to me. When these start fading...seeds pop out of their casing.






Here's a picture of the container. I'll post another picture when they are all blooming.


Thanks Patsy....I have enjoyed these plants. They are such an easy care plant. Even when I forgot to water...they never drooped. I've read a bit about them....I think that they grow along roadsides and might be considered a weed someplaces.

Hi Balisha,
I have to say that plants looks pretty nice for a roadside weed!

Your little garden looks like it is surviving very well. Touch me nots were my first attempt at gardening when I was a kid. Pretty..tough..and will re-seed themselves. I haven't thought of these in a while...maybe I should!

Thank you for showing us Touch-me-nots. They are new to me. The heat! The heat has us weak and washed out this summer. I can't believe that I am actually looking forward to frost. Has the little Cocker Spaniel been over to visit lately? We have a new grand doggie named Woody. The grandchildren are all headed back to school this week: 3 in college, one high school senior, and the little one headed for fifth grade.
