Gardening season escalates

farmer in the garden

The temperature is rising, the grass is bright spring green, and the australian impatiens have seeded everywhere. I've given them away to friends and neighbors, I've ripped them out, and I've thinned them. I need to thin them more. I can't wait for this weekend. It's going to be 72 degrees, and the entire new front bed is prepped and ready to be planted. I have space now to dig and divide and spread things around, and to envision and create a whole new area of the garden. I'm feeling giddy.

Love the garden gnome! Does he make himself useful and do weeding and pest control?

You can rip those out and throw them right on the mound that is the island in the middle of my lawn.... but that would involve a two hour drive.

Enjoy your gardening, I'm reseeding bare spots in my lawn, and putting in tree fertilizer stakes out for my japanese maple, golden desert ash, raywood ash, and my styrax japonicus.

I put "new" pictures of the yard on my new photo blog

Holy crap! That's an interesting thought. Blu and Rozanne, though we've barely met, if I blog gardening only over at OregonLive, will you come visit?

Zoe said...

Um, sure. I've never been there but I'd go for you. :-)

Rozanne said...

Let me know when it's up and running.
