Birdbath Part 3

I grouted the bird bath and frankly, I'm disappointed. It looks nice but not what I wanted. The grout takes away so much of the tile color. I picked too light a color grout which made the flower disappear. I'll get over in a week.
I also found blossom end-rot on my tomatoes so I have to go buy calcium nitrate to spray them with but thankfully it is a common problem here and fixable.
I have a blackberry plant that is growing really well. I just planted a gardenia bush in my front yard. And a tiny rose bush that came with the house just wouldn't die no matter how often I mowed it. So I transplanted it near the huge rose bush I couldn't figure out how to kill without it scratching me to death.( I don't know how well I'll do with such fussy plants as roses. I like my plants as mellow as me.) Soon I will post some more garden photos.

I think the birdbath looks good! Not bad for your first try, right?
