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.
With all that rain and now sun the last couple days and the garden explodes
I am loving this mushroom a lot. It makes me […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Not a ton blooming now, but that is what happens with a new garden bed. I have been buying a lot of small plants. It’s hard having the patience to wait for the small perennials to get big, but I would rather buy 10 small plants for $30 than 1 big plant for $30. It […]
Spring is fully here now. We did have frost warnings the last couple nights, though. Temps got in the 30s, but it didn’t seem to affect anything. There are some late tulips in town. Saw these on a walk this week:
This week brought actual planting going on in the […]
I finally have blooms for What’s Blooming, how about that? This year’s posts are going to be sparse on blooms as I am building a new garden bed. Maybe I should change the title of this post for the future.
We stopped by the old house and I took some pictures of what is […]
Thank you for all the comments on the bathroom update. We are enjoying it – and enjoying it being done!
Now for some garden news…finally…I was really pleased to see some things out in the garden this week!
Can you see those? Tulip shoots! I should have more coming up, but those […]
