Late Summer Blooms

In the spring I found a few Dahlia bulbs for less than 2$ at the grocery store and decided to plant them in what will be my bee garden next year. (My hive is all ready to go, I just had to wait an extra year because of some HOA approval stuff, so I’m using…

Mountain Flowers

When we went backpacking a couple of weeks ago, the mountains were teeming with wild flowers. There were flowers everywhere and they were amazing. There were also a number of mushrooms and wild strawberry plants around. They made an already beautiful trip even more gorgeous.

Summer Blooms

Here’s a quick look at some of the flowers blooming around my house….

Early Summer Blooms

So no new secrete here, I love flowers. And now that it finally stopped snowing, some of my flowers are starting to bloom. I have a number of Iris that have opened over the past week as well as my peony. They all just make the world a little brighter.

Planting Flowers….

So no lie here, I love spring. I love the grass turning green and flowers starting to poke through the ground and bloom. Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths just make me smile. I planted a few tulips and hyacinths last year right off our front porch and I noticed a couple of the hyacinths poking through…

And Flowers….

With as much as I enjoy gardening, my true love is growing flowers. I love flower gardens and I love making trips to the flower store. When we moved I had to leave behind my rose garden and flower garden that I had carefully worked on and added too for 6 years. I have been…

Sprouts Are Growing!

Some of my flowers are blooming, I have tulips that are bright and beautiful and a couple little flowers here…

Re-potting The Sprouts

My sprouts are doing great! Well, at least some of them are, some of them forgot that their goal in life was to grow and become plants. So since it has been 3 weeks since I first planted the seeds I replanted the containers where nothing had grown. The only problem being that I never…

So About That Snow…

So I may have complained that we weren’t getting enough snow a little too early. February went from having temps in the 60s to suddenly becoming the snowiest February we’ve ever had, and the beginning of March hasn’t slowed the snow down at all. And that daffodil that I had taken a photo of popping…

Gardening 101 Week 22

My husband murdered my zucchini plant. Actually my zucchini plants. He said he was tired of picking a gazillion zucchini a day and shredding them and freezing them in our freezer and our freezer was overflowing with shredded zucchini. He said we have enough zucchini to last the next Great Depression. I tried to remind…
