Those of you who know me know that I LOVE to garden. I am never happier than when I am out in the sunshine covered in dirt! What I don’t enjoy is digging a new bed. It’s tough work separating the grass from the clay! Anyway, I’m making progress!
The best part is that I brought cuttings and bulbs that I separated from my garden at my old home to begin my new one here. We are supposed to have a light freeze tonight. Oh, I do hope my babies survive! In my Mary garden, I have mexican sage, agapanthus, pink daylilies and daisies. We planted a flowering crabapple tree and buried the ashes of our sweet Nicky beneath it.
My other garden will have a birdbath (the base is broken – must get a new one). It will be a butterfly garden with milkweed, dill, lantana and zinnias (when in season). My digging (you can see where I started) got thrwarted by the rain this Wednesday – waiting for the dirt to dry out a bit to continue. I hope to photograph lots of butterfly visitors there!
