Gardening...


Knockout Roses!

Irises! I was so excited to see that this mysterious plant had flowers!

Our hydrangea bush is bursting with buds! I cannot wait for them to bloom!

This little Christmas tree outgrew it's original container, so we found this new planter and bought some vines to surround the tree with. I love how it came out! I am thinking that it might look nice to have one on either side of the door. I'll have to track down a tree that matches first though.

We moved our bird feeders to the backyard. Though I really liked them in the front, the birds were making a bit of a mess. I think that they look okay in the tall grass that is growing at the edge of our property. I would love to mow it all the grass down, but the ground is lumpy and rocky and it is going to take quite a bit of work to get it looking nice. We are thinking that it might look nice to plant wildflowers or sunflowers amid the grass.

I think wildflowers or sunflowers would love great against the fence! The whole yard looks great. We haven't planted anything yet-- it snowed again over the weekend and it's in the 20s this morning. Brrr! Definitely waiting until Memorial Day weekend this year!

I love wildflowers so that gets my vote.

I have a black thumb so I'm hoping one of my children inherits my mother's talent. We put in some vegetables yesterday evening but I haven't posted about it yet. We're total novices!

Everything looks just lovely. I found at Home Depot this weekend different sunflower seed packets. One was a variety pack to grow many sunflowers of different heights, shades and sizes. They also sold a hummingbird and butterfly seed mix which included seeds of the wildflowers that attract them. Wouldn't that be wonderful? They were all Burpee seed packets.I just ordered their free catalog.

I love the roses. We are trying to figure out our gardening for our new home and I never realized how hard it actually is. But yesterday I told my husband that I definitely want roses!! We will see what happens. Have a great week!
