I was shopping with my friend Linda this past weekend. Incidentally, Linda was one of the people who told me it was high time we updated this webpage - point taken Ln! She and I went to a nursery on Saturday (the flower kind not the baby kind) I was in love. Can I tell you how nice it was to walk around and admire the plants? I left there with plants, flowers and herbs! How exciting! I got home to show Mr. C my accomplishments and he smiled with approval. He suggested we get a bit more greenery to fill in all the dirt spots. We decided to go back to my new love - the nursery - on Sunday after the meeting. We got more Creeping Jenny's. We also got some small potters for the herbs and the planting soil. Once home, we got to work, well I got to work while Mr. C supervised. He really is the one with the green thumb in this family. But he appreciated I wanted this to be my hobby, so there he was supportive as always .. go head ahhh. Anyhoo, I learned a lot. Mainly that gardening is HARD. Very Hard work! I had no idea my back could ache like that and my knees from being hunched over playing in the dirt. Despite the sweat and dirt and the earthworm who slithered away after I uncovered his hiding place, the garden is taking shape nicely. I still need to do some pruning, but I'm enjoying the progress.
Mostly planted perinials - Can't wait for them to bloom!
My Day lily makes me smile
My Herbs! YAY!
(Thyme, Rosemary and Parsley)
Mexibell pepper and Sweet Basil
Ahh, I think this is the start to a beautiful hobby! I welcome any gardening tips you have!
