Early Work In The Garden
Thanks to the warm weather I have been doing a lot in my garden. I ahve moved daylillies to a sunnier area. I have moved three hydranges to a shadier area and I had to upoot and discard a wild out of control group of cannas. They had been diseased and have been taking over my other desirable plants. I have a HOT area on the back side of my house that needs plants. It gets afternoon sun. So far I have been thinking about forsythia and tea olive because its fragrant. I need suggestions. I still have four hydrangeas to moved to shadier area nad one thing that I have learned is it's always best to put a plant where it will be happiest. It saves you time and work. I'm learning and growing, just like my garden. :-)

Thanks for the warm days!
Whoo hoo! I've been enjoying these warm winter days. 60 degrees or higher. I've been planting, transplanting, pruning, and cleaning up winter. It's supposed to rain tomorrow so all of my newly planted things will hopefully get a good soaking. I'm excited and hopeful. Although I can't do all that I want I still get pleasure from the little things that I can do.

Whew! I have got it! What you might say.? I've got the fever! I have so many new ideas about what I want to do in the garden now that Spring is almost upon us. I'm excited but I'm also trying not to get carried away. That was part of what had me so frustrated before buying plants and not knowing where to put them or putting them in the wrong place... I don't want to make the same mistakes again. I have been looking at flowers in the store and in catalogs. Dreaming of all that I will do and how beautiful my garden will be. Now I have to say Whoa!!! Patience, take your time, don't be hard on yourself, don't let your imagination run too wild, take the time to enjoy your garden this year. I think I'll go get a glass of water, I've got to get this fever down. :-)
