Hello! I'm afraid I've been remiss in posting to my blog but I imagine you guessed where I am.
Now that we are having consistently warm days I'm trying to "make hay while the sun shines." In years past when I was still working, there was never enough time to do everything in the garden I wished to do. And perhaps I'm going a bit "crazy" this year.
In addition to all the cleanup, weed pulling, application of fresh mulch and the like, I've also undertaken the making of my much longed for white/night garden.
Here are some of the additions today:
|Dwarf English Boxwood|
|Lots of white Impatients|
|Bocappa to be added tomorrow|
|Oak Leaf Hydranga|
|Pots of English Lavender for accent|
|Succulents for accent and interest|
|Solar lights for when the moon isn't shining|
I will soon have plants started from seed, which will provide fragrance in the night garden. Germinating are moon flowers, white alyssum, nicotina and a few more that I'm so tired I can't recall just now.
In a few weeks the plants will begin to fill out and by that time (hopefully) the white Deutzia bush, the Mock Oranges and White Jasmine will begin bloom. And with my glow-in-the-dark stones and pots I may never want to go inside.
I can hardly wait!
By the way, if you have received an e-mail with my name on it I DID NOT SEND IT. I learned today that my sister received an e-mail "from me" (NOT from me and NOT my correct e-mail address). The purpose was promoting some green coffee bean product for weight loss. It seems some individual has found my name and email address, perhaps through this blog, and commandeered it for inappropriate purposes. It's possible anyone who has ever commented on my blog received a similar e-mail.
I promise you that I would never send such emails to you! Have you heard of such things happening before? Has it ever happened to you? G-rrr.
I hope to be back to more frequent blog posting soon.
