Well I did it! And a few other things

IMG_0999Yeah, I did it, I let the local garden club know that I would be willing to be on the garden tour in June. Whether they accept my offer or not is still up in the air. If they do………oh man!


There is so much that needs to be done! YIkes!

In the meantime I took the camera out the other day and played with taking pictures, I don’t have many blooms right now, and all my beds are needing a good amount of work. So I tried to make the best of the individual flowers.

These are a few close ups of the tulips currently blooming, a few years ago I invested in a large quantity of them, and they looked wonderful in year one. Year two not as awesome but still great, and now each year fewer and fewer blooms show up. I guess it must be a case of a plant not thriving in zone 3b. I am sure I have names for all of these, if you want them, let me know and I will dig through my not so organized records and see if I can figure it out.


My memorial day peony is getting ready to bloom! I received this plant about 20 years ago as a gift from an elderly neighbor. In her yard it was in a spot destined to be dug up for some utility maintenance.  She passed away a few years ago, but every spring when this blooms I think of her! The official name of this is “Fern leafed Peony” and I have since learned that at nursery pots of these sell for $40!

Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty!
