I haven't been able to plant much this year, since I just moved in in April, But my green thumb was itching so I had to purchase these two beauties on sale and plant them as foundation shrubs. Not more than a few days later, I woke to see these wonderful blooms and they are still going strong. Instant satisfaction.
I tossed a few seeds in a strip along the driveway that was there previously but the soil is bad so I only did annuals until I can purchase some good black dirt and amend the soil. My gardening brain did not die with the new house. I can't stop myself from creating new spaces in my mind. I have notes all over the place. Maybe it's time to organize them and keep them on the computer. I'm hoping in the fall I can order a big truckload of dirt. Now that will be a fantastic day! In the meantime I entertain myself by feeding my feathered friends.
