~ look what came!
~ Market bags from Penny at Sewtakeahike! I just love them and could not be more excited to go my farmer’s market!I am really excited about opening day. I hope to pick up some tomato plants. I got some heirloom variety there last year. Thanks Penny! I love my new bags. They are very well made, functional and so cute!
Other little happenings around my place~ ~ wild phlox, I love this plant, it takes sun. or part shade, and the color really pops in early spring. Very dependable. I trim it back after it blooms, easy to transplant and tough.
~ wood poppies, this plant is very very dependable, lives in part shade/woodland garden. Long bloom time from spring to early summer. Slowly spreads. Said to repel mammals? Saw this tidbit at a plant sale last weekend. Not very certain on that, but I really love this plant.
~ I love iris! I have many they never fail to make me happy. When I think back to my first garden beginnings I think of my mother in law Peggy, she really got me started with many pass-a-long plants, and she really truly was instrumental to me. She shared with me many plants, many times, I am grateful for that. Iris and wood poppies both given to me by Peggy.
~ the true mark or spring begginings for me is the first blooms of climbing old blush. I love this rose and it is massive. The long cool wet spring has really been beneficial to the flower form. They are full and very romantic this spring.
~ this is the view from behind the fence. Main attraction is on the opposite side, but this view ain’t too bad either!
~ Swiss chard “bright lights” yum! This is the best thing to grow. It will grow and produce for a long time. You can cut and steam the leaves, it will grow back time and again. It tolerates light shade. I have a few little onions mixed in.
