Before we tour the garden this week, let's make some Sangria. Gather your fruits of choice and slice them up. Pretty much anything goes... you could make it easy with just apples and oranges, or go all out! After I took this picture, I also added big chunks of watermelon to the mix.
Mix some red wine, Grand Marnier, a little sugar and the fruit. Refrigerate until cold, then add some Club Soda. Pour into glasses (or Mason jars!) with plenty of ice. Be sure to get some fruit into each glass and when you've finished the Sangria, eat the fruit!Now, let's tour the garden. Chives have the prettiest purple flowers!
The peonies are getting bigger and have developed the flower buds... won't be long now!
Tomato plants went in this week. We have red grape tomatoes, yellow grape tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and a couple of good old big, slicing tomatoes.
This week we also put in a jalapeno plant and some green bell pepper plants.
The irises have bloomed and gone. They don't last too long.
I picked some Lilacs to bring into the house to enjoy.
Thanks for coming along on the tour!
