Time sure flies!!


Time sure flies once gardening season hits and I haven't had time to write my blog!  I brought ferns from Michigan a long time ago.  They spread and I put a few back by the fence.  Then we dug that area out but there were a few left among the raspberry bushes.  I dug those out this year and decided to put them in a pot in the corner as I really didn't want to get rid of them.  They seem to be doing well there.



I planted a few marigolds in the garden.  Already something has eaten off two or three of them.  A bunny?????



I have toads in my yard.  I think that is a good thing.  This one looked so cute amongst the clover and dandelion.  Today a baby one was in one of my plants on the deck.  I wanted to get a picture of him but was not fast enough.



My flowers around the fountain area was a complete flop last year.  I hope it looks better this year.  When we took out an area to make life easier I plopped the coral bells into here.  Bought three purple sage, three geraniums and some petunias.  Hoping for the best!



I would not be able to garden without this handy dandy gadget to help me up and down!



Radishes from the garden!  I didn't have to buy radishes this week!  Yay!!!!



I moved this Brunnera and wondered if it would live!  Was excited to see it did and bloomed!  Thanks for visiting.  We have had some lovely days lately!

I've never heard of Brunnera but it is pretty with its delicate flowers.
Those radishes look so tasty. I gave up trying to grow them because they always got wormy.

And the radishes I grow are so hot we can't eat them. Gardening does take up a lot of time, but don't we love it! I'm so happy that I ordered a gardening bench like yours. It really does help!

Hi Granny Marigold, Thanks! I got a starter of the Brunnera from a friend's daughter in Michigan quite some time ago. I thought the blue flowers were so pretty also. I usually get only one or two plantings of radishes to grow in the spring. Nancy

Hi Henny Penny, Yup! I sure do love my gardening bench. Best thing ever invented! I don't know why but I can usually only grow one or two plantings of radishes in the spring. Nancy

My knees ache too much to garden anymore. My yard is somewhat plain because of it.

Oh my I need one of those gardening bench/knee things. It gets harder to get up every year! Ugh.

Your flowers are all so pretty. I never heard of Brunnera either. That is really pretty.

Have a great week.

Hi Tired Teacher, I am sorry to hear about your aching knees. It is really hard to get up for me but that kneeling pad really helps! Nancy

Hi Cheryl, Thanks! I hope you can get one of the kneeling benches. It is a great gardening helper!! Nancy

It is such a busy time of year, isn't it? But it looks like you are on top of things! Love the brunnera - that's one plant that I intend to incorporate into my garden.
