I visited the garden center at Lowe’s yesterday. Don’t you just love their commercial where the flowers are flowing down the street?
Well, I WAS going to go outside today and work in my yard. I bought roses, astible, marigolds, and purple salvia plants. Plus sunflower, zinnia, hollyhock and morning glory seeds.
I’m imagining the beginnings of a beautiful cottage garden by my front door. Unfortunately, the weather today is not cooperating. Guess I’ll just have to “be sick” one day this week. When things warm up and dry up, I’ll go out dig and in the dirt. (shhhh, don’t tell my boss!)
What I really would like to do is get rid of these huge stumps out there! I whacked them down in the fall but they just won’t die!
They are even leafing out again - how dare they?!
Anyway, I’m not going to let them stop me from having my flowers! No rain or storms or nasty stumps can stop this girl from having her garden!
It just might have to wait a day or two. . .
