It's time to go a gardenin'!!!
" A Conference on How Tall the Plants will get"
My first goal was to place a birdbath and plants shasta daisy, black eyed susans, lupine, and cosmos seeds around it.
Bird Bath area before I did anything.......
.......and after placing the Bath and planting the seeds!
It was simple to make this bird bath! All you need is a "log" and a ceramic/clay dish for the bath; it takes minutes to assemble!! I put a flat rock under my base to help keep it from tipping over.
I'm very pleased with the results!
Chasing a Bee
Lila is my garden "helper" although I tie her far enough away so she doesn't do any damage!! She mainly just sits in the shade and keeps me company. I love taking a few minutes to rub her belly or give her a "doggy massage" which she relishes with delight!!
"Soaking up the Rays!"
The second goal was to start planting the other seeds I had.
The only problem with this picture is that Buck is laying right where I had planted butterfly weed seeds fifteen minutes earlier!! As my Daddy said.... "he was compacting the seeds for you!".
Most of My Garden
I figured out how to use the stitch assistant on my camera!! The garden looks huge and spread out but it really isn't. On the right is the strawberry patch (you can see fresh brown mulch in it). The area on the left (around the circle) is the newer part.
These pictures were taken on Thursday and then I really got going Friday and Saturday!! I'll have to share those pictures another day!
