A MAGICAL MORNING IN THE GARDEN!
It has been a gloriously beautiful morning here. Perfect long weekend weather. The sun is beating down and I am going to plant some herbs today.
We were all up by 7:00 this morning and Rufus must have caught a scent of something and took off through the trees. I finally had to get him after my husband went to work and bring him in. He is so tired that he is out cold.
I have most of the gardens planted now and they are looking great. I love impatients. In our part of the country they are the one flower that thrives no matter what the weather. I fill my large pots with them and get a great show every season. Our local garden centre always features a designer plant every year. This year it is trailing vines. I put some into all of the pots. Can't wait to see what they look like.
I planted the large urn with some beautiful geraniums. Unfortunately, my front porch does not get sun so I cheat and put out silk geraniums, I just like the red against the colour of the house.
The front gardens are filling in so lush and green. I decided to just leave them green and not plant any other flowers there. I really love that cool green looks.
I adore my front porch. We have kept it just as it was built 236 years ago. I miss sitting there in the cold months.
I hang baskets all over the porches. I love the wild look of different flowers and vines combined in wire baskets. Here is an example of my garden recycling. I had some old school desks that were badly damaged and took them apart. I used the legs for plant hanging brackets. They look great and have lasted for years. The more they age the better they look.
I hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather and getting lots done in your gardens too. I will have some very exciting news on Monday, I can't wait to tell you. Have a fabulous day!
