Fall



Hi All,

The gardening year is slowing down and it is time to collect seeds to share. It is a pleasure to pass on seeds for someone else to enjoy.

This year I planted a blueberry bush,tons of new plants, ordered many bulbs for spring, started a memory garden, removed shrubs that out grew the area where planted and made new friends in the gardening world.

Also, had the storage shed and deck painted, replaced part of the wood fence and caught an armadillo that was rooting up the flower beds.

Trapping an armadillo was a hoot--------they can destroy a flower bed and dig under your foundation and cause problems. At first I did not know what was digging in the beds,one night I heard a noise around the deck and decided to check it out and there in the corner bed was a ugly armadillo I don't know who was more frighten the armadillo or me.

Borrowed a trap and placed the trap in his pathway and caught him, they have poor vision and are suppose to be hard to trap but I got lucky, DH delivered him to a wooded area away from my garden. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!

I'm moving inside now maybe I can get some much needed housework done.

Friday in the garden

Texas Star

The Texas star did not bloom as well as it has in the past only a few blooms this year, not sure why, maybe to much rain early in the year or not enough.

Plans




Hi everyone,

I have been working on the backyard with a little help and the progress has been slow. I Have stones for a new patio. The deck has been reworked and painted and all of the over spray landed on the plants that were not covered, so they look like speckled plants.

Working with a blueberry bush, I need help anybody out there know how to grow blueberries? Would appreciate your info.

I do not know about your area but the deep south of MS has been so so hot, heat index has been 115, impossible to work in this heat. But I still try.

How about up dates on your garden.

Garden

Come walk with me around my garden. The roses are beautiful this year, some of the roses have name tags and some do not. Dianthus are putting on a show and the purple iris have performed nicely. My garden is becoming fuller and fuller, maybe because I keep adding and not deleting. I hope you enjoy the walk, come back any time.
