Day four - Preparing our gardens

May 16, 2008

New life! Some of my “babies” have shown themselves in the last couple of days. I am so blessed.

Yesterday, I did some more planting and transferring. I cut down my tulips, some premature because their petals will drop soon. My pot count is up to 67 now. I bought some plants and potted them in lager pots. We had our pea stone delivered this afternoon that we will lay on the side of the house as planned. That will be our project tomorrow.

Above and below-

I have cut down my tulips and divided up some of these multiples. Unfortunately, I can not remember what I put in these areas last Spring. I think they are a lily. I planted so many perennials in pots and some in the ground, and others that were only annuals. I must have their tags somewhere. Last year was my biggest “pot” planting season. Unfortunately, I wasn't blogging then.

This tag represents the tall flowers below-

Yesterday, I bought 2 pots of Beard-Tongue. The lighting was poor today when I shot these, actually it was raining.

This tag is for the 2 pots below. I hadn't heard of Tickseed before I came across these at the store. I thought they would give me some immediate color.

These two brown pots and the blue pot have Irises in them. I broke them up and transferred them from one pot, because they had knotted up so bad they weren't blooming.

      Gardening seems to have to be done all at once. Keep us informed on how everything is coming. Nice pictures.
