Yesterday we did get a little bit done, David tilled and leveled one side of the front yard, we white washed an old piece of lattice for behind the rose garden we are creating...Lil Sara was a big help and filled the wheel burrow twice with rocks from the garden at the old house and then rode in the wheel burrow with the rocks on the way back to the new house while mummy and daddy took turns pushing it....She tried and help lug the 8ft 4x4 garden boarders from one house to the other also...Mummy did not really appreciate that help though..
This lovely cascade of wisteria is from last yr, we have it growing wild all thru the wooded part of our property...Eventually I would like to try and tame it a little so it would stop killing the trees...I noticed yesterday the tips of the vines are starting to swell up so it will not belong before we get to enjoy them again.
Here are the two roses I brought to start my "rose garden"...I love all the different colored blooms on the Climbing Pinata and have planted it up against the white washed lattice...Of course with our little blue house how could I not get the Blue Girl...She is not far from the climber and will be surrounded by all the lovely bulbs I got today...After the bulbs are planted I am going to scatter this packet of seeds, so hopefully (if the birds and chickens do not eat them before they sprout) we should have a lovely showing of flowers from spring thru autumn *crosses fingers*
Spotted these dwarf hydrangeas in Walmart...now to find the perfect home for them at my house...Oh and the money in the budget for more plants :0)
Hopefully soon they will start running the plastic rows in the fields behind the house and start planting the watermelons...(Remember I get to use the rows that are directly behind my house for my veggie garden this year)...Once they start planting the melons, I can start planting my veggies...
Herb garden bed is also on hold due to weather, but we did get the seeds in the mini green house planted today...Also on hold is planting the potatoes, which are now happily sprouting in the bucket in my utility room...Oh and no pics of the "rose garden" in the making because it is just to wet and icky to go outside and take photos today...
That about wraps up my gardening plans for now...Bring on the blue skies and warmer days.
