I got to play outside this past weekend finally! still much to do, but I did manage to get 4 of my window boxes filled as well as a few planters and pots. I still have a couple things left to fill. Torry came over on Friday and did his dinosaur garden. I think he needs a bigger container. I have to look for an old wagon I think. This little toy wheel barrel is really small. But he's happy with it. I took him to pick out plants for it and all he wanted were petunias! Tried to talk him into other things.. but he picked them out fast and that was that!
Being close to the lake, I think makes my lilacs and lillys bloom later then everyone elses! But they are blooming now! In fact I think I need to go out this morning and pick some to take to work. They smell so good and they make me happy!
Unfortunetly lilacs dont seem to last long after they are picked. I wish there was a way to keep them fresh longer. but oh well even a couple days is worth it.
I wish I had it in me to have "real" gardens. I don't venture much further then pots and boxes. Anything in the ground itself feels out of my control! lol! I don't have a green thumb. I'm lucky I can keep anything alive! I have plants inside that I've had for 30 years.. and I swear that it's a miracle that they are alive! seriously!
Here's a pic of my little fairy garden. Not quite done. I bought the metal banner for it the other day. But I really think I liked the paper ones that I made in previous years better. I'm thinking of covering the little metal ones with some cute papers. I also need to put a taller plant in the back and put my little tire swing in there. Then it will be finished.
wow.. I was just thinking today was thursday and I was thinking the weekend was almost here! lol.. its only wednesday. I was at a training all day yesterday on drug trends and now Im confused! lol!
Anyways.. I suppose I should do something constructive and get ready for work!
have a great day bloggy friends!
