feels more like summer. i swear! it must be close to 80° out there today!
took the camera out to the garden today. it's really coming along. all the construction is done. ken got the fence up and as soon as he's done working on baby mac's crib he'll build a gate and an arbor. it's going to be great.
i was supposed to take it easy today, my back has been misbehaving badly but the day was calling me. the sunshine, the birdsong. how was i supposed to stay indoors? i walked around the yard for a bit, scoping things out. looking at everything coming up all over. it's always fun to see what makes it from one season to the next. we have hostas galore! lilies, tulips, the astilbe that i thought died last year is up, better than ever. and we even have one tiny little fern. ken's going to be happy about that.
i sat in the garden for a bit and plotted things out in my mind - the best place for all the sunflowers, how we have room for a table and a couple of chairs out there. i couldn't resist getting my hands dirty so i took the zinnia sproutlings we started a few weeks ago and got them settled in their new bed. and i planted a few rows of seeds too, just to have some rotation in my cut flower bed. have i mentioned yet how i have no idea what i'm doing?
i also transplanted some poppies. we'll see. i've heard they don't move well. i watered them and now i wait. hopefully ken won't dig them up mistaking them for a weed in my garden. i think perhaps we need a new garden rule - anything inside the fence he doesn't mess with. oh, and grizz has discovered he can fit through certain slats in the fence. we may need to do something about that before we have a little grizzly bear nibbling on our goodies.
for now that's it. the major veggies should go in the ground in the next few weeks. i'm really excited. i love my garden. i think it's going to be a great place to relax and enjoy the summer.
