Plants!!


It is that time of year when I can't resist buying new plants!  This is a beautiful Columbine.



My Sungold tomato plant.  Wanted to be sure I got one!



I love geraniums!  I think these are the same size pots but one is larger than the other.



Those geraniums will go on the chairs by the garden gate.  If the nights get too cold yet I will bring them in the house.



Of course, besides the geraniums I had to buy more plants.



I bought another red geranium to set on the bird bath stand in the garden.   Will have to cut off the hook!  I dug out blackberry roots that came up again and put them in the five gallon pails in the garden area.  They are thornless and read that I am suppose to be able to grow them in pots.  We didn't care much for eating the blackberries but the blackberry jelly was sure good so what have I to lose if I try growing them this way!



I was just about out of my homade bread so had to get busy and bake some.  I got this recipe from my good friend, Carol, a long time ago when she served me some in Pt. Huron, MI. where we use to live.  Thanks Carol for sharing this delicious recipe!
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers!!  I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Oh yum the bread looks so good. I love bread. Your plants looks great. I wish you no more cold nights. I see you are in Indiana...so am I. My daughter lives near Elkhart. Blessings to you for a wonderful mother's day. xoxo, Susie

I bought my geraniums yesterday and will keep them in the garage at night until it stays consistently warm in the evening.

Nothing smells or taste better than homemade bread.

Yummy looking bread ... love your geraniums too.
Have fun with your new plants.

I can never resist buying plants either. Too many of them. Last year I vowed to have less in pots ( because I spent an hour each evening watering) but somehow I still have plants in pots everywhere.
Your bread sure does look tasty.

Hi magnoliasntea, Thanks! I hope I can keep everything living! Our weather is so unpredictable this time of year. Thanks for you visit! Nancy

Hi Tired Teacher, Yes, I do like my bread but try not to eat too much of it. I bought red and some pink geraniums. Sure hope the weather cooperates. Nancy

Hi Audrey, Thanks! I hope the weather cooperates for my gardening ideas! This time of year is so unpredictable. Nancy

Hi Granny Marigold, I know what you mean about having to water the pots! But like you, I still buy or plant them anyway! Enjoy! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Thanks Granny Marigold for the Mother's Day wish! Enjoy your day too! Nancy

The flowers you bought are so pretty. I've resisted buying any so far and that's not like me. There is still time, I think. Your yard looks pretty. Happy Mother's Day!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Henny Penny, Thanks! I am sure you have plenty of time to buy flowers! At least in the area I live! I have to be careful not to put them out too soon. I hope to buy more too! LOL Happy Mother's Day to you too! Nancy

Your property is so pretty! Love your new plants - can't wait to see how the blackberries do in the buckets! I planted my berries in large pots this weekend also.i just have to figure out where the grape vine is going....hmmmm.

I love bright colored flowers, and geraniums, especially bright red, are among my favorites. I too have planted some in pots for the summer. We have some purple columbine that is just coming into bloom and Coral Bells as well. Spring is such a wonderful time of year.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Mountain Mama, Thank you so much! Sure hope my blackberries do okay contained in the pails! We use to have a grape vine! Have fun with your gardening! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Gloriade, I love the big bright red pots of geraniums but the big pots are sure expensive! I hope my columbine will come back next year. I understand that they reseed too. Now if I just don't pull them out when they do thinking they are weeds! Nancy
