57. I haven't decide if I'm growing veggies yet.
I've found some new flowers I want to plant in the old veggie bed. Beauty before food I always say. :rofl:

Here's some pics from last year.

Clematis


Canna Lily


Echinacea


Plumbago & Zinnias


Hollyhocks


Malva Zebrina


Daylily


Are you sorry you asked for pics yet? :P
