(plants sunning on the deck with me)
(onions and garlic in back and lettuce up front)
(radish, I always plant in carrot row but carrots are not up yet)
(I love the garden, probly better than my lawn lol
trees and grass and the garden bench so perfect)
I went to a basket stuffing last weekend and got all the plants (maybe) for my planters. I got some purple petunias, gazenias (cause they are drought tolerant lol), lobelia, the colored foliage stuff, and the 2 baskets I filled down there with hanging stuff. Them and the stuff I ordered through the playschool should about fill up everything.
And I went to the plant sale on Monday at Cessford and I did buy some flowers, red marigolds and some neat euphoria?with colored leaves and white flowers, some purple basil and was given chives and garlic chives which I guess just grow and try and take over. Which is OK cause I do like the flowers.
And Sunday on our way to Olds, we stopped at L and Ms and traded tomato plants, I had all small ones she had all big ones. I gave her 4 and she gave me 8 (I didn't want that many lol but she also had too many) and then she gave me 2 ice cream pails of irises and a pot of lillies. Then Monday before the plant sale I went up to a neighbors and she had luck rooting pussy willows so I got a bunch of those (her leftovers lol) and I gave her a pail of iris and some tomatoes too. She tried to give me a kitten too but luckily skipped that one lol.
(way more than I needed I don't even know where to put them all
but I will plant them cause they probly won't all survive but they are so cool)
(close up, so fuzzy)
My crabapple trees and the ornamental are blooming as well, I sure love them when in flower, and oh the bees!
(I love this tree, hard to believe I shopped so much off last fall)
(got a bee in there)
I wish more trees up here had flowers on, I sure loved that about California the flowering trees, but I guess that's what happens when you have summer all year round.
