What’s Blooming!

What’s blooming today? Rocks!! Any of you keeping track might remember the little wall we removed from the garden bed by the house a couple weeks ago. The bed was very sloping and I was moving dirt when I unearthed a ton of rocks:

I emailed Debby with a picture of my find right […]

This is the view from our dining room out the back:

The way the house is built, this room is actually on the ground floor from the front of the house, but it has a walkout basement, which was dug out making the back of the room look out a story up. The flower […]

I has me some flowers! Last weekend one of the local garden centers had a tent clearance sale and I had to check it out, of course! They had some great deals on plants and boy were people just piling plants into their pile as fast as they were bringing them out. The sale was […]

Hey – I’m back! It’s been busy around here in the evenings and I just haven’t had time to compile a post. I haven’t been in the garden as much as I would like, either.

I am making plans for these bare areas.

I tried a different sweet potato vine this year. […]

Happy Independence Weekend! I only had to work a part day today, so that was nice. You just never know how much work will come in on a holiday.

My favorite post of the week! I love to peek out in the garden every day and see what is new. That’s the great thing about gardening. There is always something new and many times something unexpected!

On the annual front, the cosmos are filling out nicely.


This week the cleome also started […]

What’s Blooming!

I have blooms this week. Yay! But first, work on our shed. We really need a shed for all the outdoor stuff. Our garage is too small for anything more than the car and our bikes (and it is a tight squeeze for that). So, we need storage space outside for garden and maintenance stuff. […]

Continuing work in the beds. I have cleared out a lot of the shade bed. I wasn’t thinking I would get to much of that this year, but we have been making such great progress this spring. I had some astilbe roots to plant, so early in the spring I cleared a section and then […]

I am glad for this weekend to have arrived. Yay! The baby garden is shaping up now. The first couple of years will be bare, but that is okay. This is the year for annuals while I decide on perennials.

We need a ton of mulch for the beds in the front and back, but […]

What’s Blooming!

Progress being made in the garden bed. No more plant ‘acquiring’ by me from the old house anymore. Oh well. The buyer wants to keep the garden beds, so that is good. I am giving her a schematic of the old garden so she knows what is what along with my email if she has […]
