I have been getting some questions about the happenings in the garden. That both thrills me to no end (because I love talking about our garden), and scares the bejesus out of me (because sometimes I am not really sure I know what I am doing). Right now I have some beautiful spring flowers and some promising looking edibles Here is a little tour.
This is the first year ever that I got these peonies to bloom, and I am loving every second. A neighbor gave me some great advice. I threw ice on the ground where the bulbs were (during the heart of winter) about 3-4 times. The plant needed the freeze to bloom. I am so in love with these.
Mini-carnations that I have had for about three years now. I am pleased with how hardy they are.
An iris of some kind in my favorite color. You will notice that I tend to favor anything purple.
One of my rose bushes.
I made this succulent planter a few moths back, and I am happy with how well it is filling in. It is very low maintenance.
I got this peony as a gift from my mother-in-law, and it bloomed the first year. I have two other bulbs that she gifted to me that didn't bloom this year. I will be icing them this winter.
My yellow rose bush.
This is future plum cobbler.
Future peach cobbler
This is where blackberries come from.
Remember the onions that I planted here? This is what they look like now.
We have never tried planting carrots before, so we did them in a pot. We were supposed to thin them out (we grew them from seed) but we didn't. I have no idea how these are going to turn out.
Surprise, another rose!
Some tine little pears.
That covers all that is interesting in my garden right now. Have you tried growing anything in your yard? I would love to see what you are up to.
