So here is a quick update about what I’ve been up to………
Last Sunday my brother came back with his back hoe and moved the pile of soil for me. I then got it all raked and shoveled into a garden bed. It was supposed to rain on Monday, which would make for much more work/sorer muscles.
Yep, it rained. ‘So glad I got that work done. So Monday I played around with the plants that are to go in this bed. A lot of these were moved from other beds because they became crowded out or shaded out. A lot have been in pots for a painfully long time. The tulips, I potted up last fall and wow, did they get big! The Phormiums I sliced off of the ones I had in the bed to the right. Watch out plants, there is going to be A LOT of slicing going on!
I also bought some new tables and chairs. I got them at World Market. Have I told you how much I love that place? They have the best designs at the best prices. I bought 3 of the small french tables and a whole bunch of chairs which I am going to paint a flat black (though that could change to a semi-gloss). I love black in the garden. LOVE IT!
The variegated silver dollar plant,
And another one with a different variegation. I love these guys.
’till next time……
