Lorie said...

Everything looks lovely, Dani.

Dani said...

Chickory, you were so close, it was pak choi.

No, I don't dare do something like that...I'll end up with a bunch of roos, I just know it! And I'm already pushing it keeping The Girlz illegally.
I live in fear of the code enforcement man... lol

You're so sweet Lorie! How was the vacay for you and the family?

Darla said...

Looks good Dani!

Buzz Kill said...

Cool beans - green beans that is!

threecollie said...

Wow, simply gorgeous! You have a pretty special green thumb.

Boxer said...

hope it's ok, I'm taking the picture of the yellow flowers to use as my screen saver today... the rain and clouds have returned and this little ray of sunshine is just what I need.

Happy New Year!

I see you have a "DADT" chicken policy.

:)

Garden rocks as always!

Susan said...

Your veggies look so yummy. Winter vegetables are a lot easier to grow for me. Thank goodness they can take some low temps.

Big Shamu said...

LOVE the color on the first viola/pansy(?). It makes me smile. Even on my best garden day, it never looks as good and delicious as yours. It's a good thing I'm not your neighbor because there would be a raiding party every night and I would so totally blame the rabbits.

Dani said...

Damn rabbits!

Granny Annie said...

Are your green beans stringless?

DayPhoto said...

SECRET PEPPER PERSON: said...

Thought of you yesterday when I sat down with my Heirloom seed catalog! Gotta go get me some horse poo this week....and start on the soil early. My winter garden has been a bust. A handful of green beans, some peppers, and my swiss chard has been 2 inches tall for 6 months....what am i doing wrong???

Dani said...

Darla, it's gonna be some good eats too!

MS, I need some good kale recipes. I overplanted just a bit... ;)

Buzz, I love the Kentucky Wonder beans. They're so hardy and sooooo tasty.

ThreeC, thank you friend for the kind words. I've found doing the genealogy that I come from a long line of farmers. Maybe the green thumb comes from that. :)

Boxer, I don't mind at all. Makes me feel good knowing I can bring a little sunshine to someone.

Happy New Year to you too! I was so ready to get past 2010.

FC, you slay me!!!!!!!!!!

Susan, they're a lot easier to grow for me too. Not as many bugs out either to chew them all up. I like that.

Shamy, it's such a beautiful pansy! I love how the yellow radiates out from the center.

After it goes to seed, I'll grab some so we can share.

Granny, nope, but I think next planting I'll go with a stringless variety.

Linda, girlfriend you go right ahead and break out the paints!

I really do have the sweetest bunch of friends in y'all! Thank you for making MY day so bright. :)

Dang, I'm just downright chatty today! lol

Dani said...

SPP, how much sun are they getting per day? Raised bed or not?

Susan said...

sighing from the land of snow & ice.
We love pansies. What a fabulous garden you have Dani xo S & Gang

Intuitive Eggplant said...

Awww, so lovely! And I spotted some flamingos in that one shot too :)

Darla said...

Dani, Zinnias will get powdery mildew/mildew if they are too wet. They can go long stretches without watering, too much water also makes them fall over.

Melissa said...

That's lovely....How many months until spring here in Missouri?

Kelly said...

Wow. Such color and texture you presented us with!

Big Shamu said...

Too many Melissa.

Beautiful Flowers.
My friend Dr. Frank Egler was a friend of Rachel Carsons and he assisted her with Silent Spring. Like Rachel, Frank was a famous conservationist. You would surely enjoy reading one of Dr. Egler's books. It's called "THE WILD GARDENER IN THE WILD LANDSCAPE" and it's about the art of naturalistic landscaping.
I wish you well and thanks again for those lovely floral photos. A flower once saved my live. Seeing your's has revived me.
