"I have been under allot of stress"
This is Jasper.... Just to give you an idea of his size- he weighs over fifty pounds and is probably the size of a Lab. He's a "pound puppy" and is pretty much spoiled rotten!
Sunday evening found me staying home from church with Sayre, who was feeling awful. I took it into my head to clean out my closets and so began pulling everything out. Jasper was on the bed, then moved to under the bed, and finally decided that the top of the stairs was the safest place for him! Apparently I had way to much stuff pulled out for him to be comfortable with!! I had to laugh when I watched all this take place!
"Lila and Little Miss Moo Moo"
Lila is also my dog and is the same size as Jasper. She stays outside all the time and is the biggest sweetheart you have ever seen!! She would sit all day in your lap (if you allowed it) if you would lavish her with attention!
I found Lila and the calf "hanging out" together yesterday afternoon, and since this is a rare occurrence, I thought I would post a picture of it!!!
Now onto the gardening part!!
Daddy had bought me two more Phlox plants at my request last Thursday, and it wasn't till yesterday that I got them planted. I don't know if you can see the "trench" that I dug.... I put some bricks in there in order to keep the dirt from washing off the plants.
I'm calling this little area my "Spring Time Garden" as I put in iris rhizomes and a bunch of daffodil bulbs!! You add in the Creeping Phlox and it's going to be ablaze with color next spring!! I can't wait!
This is the newer section of my garden and also the shadier. I planted three bulbs on each side of the path; you can probably see the holes or the pile of dirt! I also planted the "leftovers" behind my bench..... I can't wait to see if they come up!
I had several plants that didn't die back at all this winter. All three of my Foxglove plants are alive and thriving which I find amazing! This plant in particular seemed to get bushier and bushier as the winter went on!! Two of the plants bloomed last summer and I've heard that they won't bloom this summer. Matter of fact, I've heard that they are suppose to die after the summer that they bloomed. Can anyone tell me if this is true?
My Columbine seemed to gain momentum this winter also! It struggled along last summer so I'm amazed that it's still alive. Maybe it will bloom this summer!
Mrs. Greene let me pull up some daisy like plants from her yard last summer and these little guys are from the seeds that fell!!! Oh excitement!!!
Even my strawberry plants are deciding to get in on the action!!! It's a little early for them to bloom though...
And of course the weather is perfect for the pansies to be in full bloom!!
Oh the joys of gardening!
