Got to plant some new flowers. Whoopie!
Monday after leaving the lake/senior center I went by the garden area of Lowe's. They had some pretty good selections of spring flowers. I got a couple of pink Carnations, two French Lavenders, and three six packs of annuals. Stock and Asters. Got two others, just can't think of their names, as they are something new. :-) Pretty and pink though. I like the colors pink and lavender. They go with a pink house. :-) I got them planted same afternoon, and now they are enjoying the rain we're getting right now. How great is that?! I will do some more planting in the coming weeks. My Dahlias are coming up nicely, and the Peonies are really loaded with blooms, just hope the rain doesn't make them fall off, only one has bloomed so far. A very pretty deep pink. I have some volunteer tomato plants coming up again this year. I guess I will have some yellow pear again this year. How nice. I wanted to plant an Ace type of tomato, but haven't yet. I really should soon, but haven't really got a good place for one, the Dahlias are taking up that space. Guess I really like flowers to look at more than picking tomatoes when they are really cheap in the stores. They take a great deal of water too, and that is a minus. Oh, well, I will enjoy whatever comes up that I plant, and be glad that it did. I still have some cleaning up to do with weeds in the back, but I will get there. No, big rush I suppose since I want to have as much rain as possible. It will be double duty with weeds when a rain has been here. So I will just save myself some work , by waiting the rain out. That's it for the garden report. Gosh, this rain makes me want to take a nap! Yawn! Ta Ta Antique Rose
