Primroses and Johnny Jumpups (baby pansy?) all in yellows!
Yes I have strawberrys trying to multiply!
More Primrose colors
Its looking pretty good so far.....now that I have handled the gopher damage.
I have this old 'gold panning' pan from my brother that is now dedicated to gardening!
OMG THIS SMELLS SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!
The nursery said that snails and sluggs dont like to travel across the scratchy cocoa shell mulch so perfect for me!
Yellow Tulips and Daffodils!!!
Yes, I planted bulbs and Johnny Jump ups and Primroses this past weekend. (also Millers nursery said that all of these plants were not so yummy to gophers)
(Yes I am trying to keep them little buggers at bay. Short of buying the rabbit pee that is.)
Also most of what I planted is in the yellow color family….and its sunny and delightful to be sure!!!
I also cleaned up the trailing Geraniums in the hanging pots on the porch. I so dearly wish for them to do well through the winter. And be prolific as spring starts to roll in.
I know so many of you are under a sleeping blanket of snow and the ground is frozen, but for me, its just a wee bit cold and wet. I LOVE
So I have never planted much in the way of bulbs. I am a Bulb Virgin. Moms Iris’s and Gladiolas got Thripes last year. I never had any success at getting rid of it and they never flowered. I don’t know what to do now.
Any ideas as how to treat the soil or anything now?
So the icing on the cake was when I was done I put down a lovely layer of Chocolate bean hulls for mulch.
OMG IT SMELLS LIKE A BIG FAT CANDY BAR OUTSIDE!!!! Hahahahah
Hmmm dirt and chocolate….now that’s one heck of a mud pie don’t you think?!?!!!
