Sweet Details

Just a few little things I noticed in the garden this past week.

The asparagus is making berries.


My clematis is blooming well even if many of the vines look brown.


The purple hyacinth bean vine plants are climbing the teepee trellises.


They smell wonderful.

  1. Rain has really helped your garden. We are still waiting for the life giving rain here in Nebraska. The tomatoes are just sitting on the vines green. Everyone seems to be having the same trouble and that is they just aren't turning red. I think it's because we have not had the hot humid nights needed to ripen the tomatoes. Most of the nights here have been lower 60s all summer. That's just not too normal for here in July and August.

    Have a great day in the garden.

  2. I had no idea asparagus did that! Well, I guess I learned something new today.

  3. I'm not sure I've set as wet of an August! Isn't it terrific! The garden is loving it (as are the weeds!)

    1. Certainly not normal. The cooler temps have been amazing too. Waaay different than last year.

  4. Is that asparagus fern? I wish I didn't have that plant growing here. The thorns on it are awful and you have to be very careful when trimming them or pulling them out, which is a real pain as they are very hard to pull out.

    Your hyacinth bean blooms are pretty.

    Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

    1. The berries are on my asparagus plants. The ones you eat! I have asparagus fern in a container. It's only a house plant here although it will survive in garages that get some heat over winter. They are very prickly. I'm sure they can grow well in Florida and probably are a pain.

  5. Great details! (I don't think my clematis have rebloomed....I need to go check!) I don't raise asparagus and didn't realize they "berry".

  6. My purple hyacinth bean vines are reaching up so high. The flowers are so pretty...when do they get the pods?

    1. Mine usually get pod in late September thru October. They are such a pretty purple.

    2. Me again...I was just in the garden and found some pods forming. They start green and turn a pretty purple before drying to harvest! Hope you get bunches.
