It never ceases to amaze me when the seedlings I plant in the spring turn into so many beautiful flowers and vegetables by the summer.  Some of my favorite floral varieties this season have been grown from seed along with our vegetable garden which is contained in elevated beds.

Since we have an abundance of seed-grown annuals, I often plant them in containers that hold other flowers.  The heirloom pansies shown above are planted at the base of containers filled with bougainvillea.

The elevated beds are filled with many different varieties of vegetables.  This season we are growing  a mix of tomatoes, melons, eggplants, peppers, and cucumbers.  In addition there are several more large pots of vegetable plants throughout the garden.

These orange calendula flowers were abundant in the patio garden until the heat arrived. They were then replaced with zinnias which tolerate much hotter temperatures.

Queen Red Lime Zinnias are one of my summer favorites.  They grow in full sun and have the most amazing range of color!

Apricot Blush Zinnias are also a favorite and add a touch of brightness to the patio container garden.  They grow beautifully in pots and bloom profusely in the sun.
