Triple yellow Datura, Persion melons & more from Carrie's garden

Carrie sent some very recent photos of her garden and said she would be happy if they were shared with you all.

Yellow double/triple datura. She doesn't remember where she got the seeds, but she's hoping they make seeds she can pass around ...

Orange esperanza ...

Carrie said instead of throwing seeds of a Persion melon in the compost pile she planted them in the holes of cinder blocks that surround her garden. The melon she's eaten so far was very sweet and about fifteen more are coming along. Wouldn't you like to be her neighbor and share in the bounty? :-)

This is a shot of her veggie garden. How I'd love to have this large of an area to devote to growing veggies ...

Carrie, thanks so much for inspiring us with all your hard work in developing your garden and for sharing the wonderful pictures. Now send more ... (grin)

Very pretty. I love the datura. Your yard still looks so pretty, even in this drought.

Thank you all so much...........I have now harvested the two larger melons, and there are several others not too far behind.
I heard thunder twice today, and counted a few rain drops on the driveway.........am just waiting for the rain that causes water to RUN down my driveway .......maybe soon.

Four days and nights of solid rain would be soooo nice!
