Garden Blooms and Veggies

Hibiscus Bloom, I got this plant for $2 last fall on clearance at Lowes.  I thought it died over the winter, but it is back and beautiful.
Rain, rain, and more rain makes for beautiful garden flowers and veggies.  So far this year, I have been able to harvest sugar snap peas, spinach, cucumbers, and just this week I brought in my first cherry tomatoes.

Can you believe how the tomato plants have taken off?  I feel like I have to add new support/stakes everyday just to keep up with these plants.

Last year I didn't have any luck growing cucumbers.  This year they are coming out like gangbusters.  I planted these from seed, whereas last year I bought plants.  They must love all the rain!

I can't wait for these little ones to ripen.
Is anyone else having garden success?  I would love to hear about it.
