I have some fun new flowers to show you this week. I was worried that these were going to open up and be spent during our vacation, but they were very slow at opening.
First off are my bleeding hearts. These got a lot bigger. The 2 plants are on each side of my bowling [...]
Friday – yay! What a nice day as well. I made an executive decision to work a half day day and put in a half day on Saturday so I could enjoy some good weather since Saturday is supposed to be rainy. As stressful as my job can get at times- you can’t beat being [...]
It’s tulip time around Casa Radiance!! Last week one tulip opened – now a lot of them. These are all the early and mid season tulips.
Seeing these makes me SO HAPPY!!!
This is a double tulip. It looks almost like a rose. Monte Carlo:
For real! A what’s blooming post! It finally feels like spring around here. Finally. The garden is changing every day now. I note from last year that we are about 2 weeks behind.
I can’t remember what kind of tulips these are. Early species – I think?
The close up at night and open [...]
We made it through another week! Did it go by really fast to anyone else? Guess that happens when you are busy.
We have had some beautiful weather here this week. Almost perfect fall. And speaking of fall – time to change the garden flag!
Guess I should iron that. If only I could [...]
I have a new flower to show you! First up, though, is the revamping of the garden bed. Remember this picture?
I labored away Labor Day weekend and made it a reality!
I still need to amend the soil as it is pretty sandy. Most of the planting will occur in the spring, [...]
Friday time again! Boy the time just goes speeding by. It’s scary sometimes. Work was surprisingly slow today. I think maybe there are some last minute vacations from people and the physicians before school starts after Labor Day. That meant I was trying to get things done that I planned for later after I was [...]
Midseason garden time and I am already making plans for some bed renovation. This all stemmed from finding a rose that I really, really want in my garden. This one:
Pumpkin Patch. I am very particular about my roses. They can’t be tea roses and they have to be hardy, disease resistant, rebloomers and [...]
Today is a bit of a different What’s Blooming post. My garden club (which meets once a month) met today at the home of someone who sells cut flower bouquets at farmer’s markets. They actually just moved into this property 6 months ago and have already done a ton to it to get it ready [...]
Friday blooms! Plus the new driveway. Heehee! It showcases my shade garden very well.
All those tall lilies are pretty much gone.
Sometimes I feel very “adult” when I love home things like the new driveway or our new windows. Yeah, I know I am 44 and technically an adult, but it’s all in [...]
