I have radishes, beets, parsnips and bunching onions. Two flower beds, two blueberry bush pots, two acai bush pots and a geranium/herb pot planted. Nine million and forty two seedlings ready for transplant (give or take eight million). My back is sore, my calves are tender, my arms are killing. I LOVE SPRING!
I’m trying to beat a thunderstorm that is heading our way so this will be yet again, a shorter post. I wanted to tell you about the flower beds I put in yesterday evening. This is a very simple border around our little parking area. I think it will help make this neglected looking area a bit more cheerful.
Along the length is a bed 2′ wide by 25′. Here I planted:
- Carmine Rose
- Scarlet Flame
- Violet Queen
- Rose Cactus
Along the width the bed is 2′ by 15′. I wanted lower plants here. Here I put:
- Thyme -because we can all use more of this, right?
- Petite Marigolds in yellow and orange
- Lilliput Zinnias
Ugh! I hear thunder. Here are some pictures of the beds before the flowers. After pictures will have to wait, I need to get outside!
Have a Spring filled paisley day!~KeriAnne
