|I took the time to feed my African Violets.|
|I have never grown these flowers with results like this!|
|The violets just keep blooming and their leaves are spreading out further than the saucer's edges. How large can African Violets grow?|
|This was my favorite part of the day.|
Raking my garden.
|I planted all these bulbs last November. I surrounded the Tulips with the Daffodils so the rodents won't eat the Tulip bulbs. |
The Daffodil bulbs are toxic.
|These Primroses traveled to Florida and back last year!|
They survived the trip and came up, this spring, full of flowers. They thrived in Florida, outside, on the patio table in the shade.
|I had some serious thinking to do,|
while moving the leaves around.
|What perennials am I buying at the garden center?|
|I always plant Alyssiums on the edge on the rock wall so they can hang down like lacy white ruffles.|
|I will fill in with annuals, but what kind? Steve is moving his vegetables over by the garage so I have all three tiers to myself!|
|We have a short growing season in Northern Michigan, as I type, it is 47 degrees and gray outside.|
|Benny, my buddy, followed me around and looked at all the flowers. Wonder what goes on in my dog's head.|
|So, I have to come up with a plan in short order.|
|I am making a list, more blue Delphiniums, pink and white Impatiens.|
|What else blossoms in the shade of forty acres|
of hardwood and a limited time span?
|I put a Chuck Roast in the oven and served roast, potatoes and carrots with gravy for Sunday dinner.|
I had a fine day of doing nothing but what I felt like doing!
Happy Mother's Day!!
