I have a lot of blooming going on out on that patio. Of course most of it is in containers.
Marigolds, columbine, daisies, purslane. Irises, clematis, red hot poker. I’m sure I’m leaving out some.
Just waiting for the vines to climb and start blooming next.
For climbers, I’ve got hyacinth bean vines planted and growing like it’s on steroids. White clematis, various colored morning glories and moon vine. I think that’s it on the vines.
I didn’t plant this much last year. Or really since I’ve been in Tulsa. The yard at the blue house overwhelmed me. Then I fell the first summer I was there.
So this year is really the first year I’ve gone all out. And since I’m mainly gardening in containers, I’m not killing myself digging in the ground. Now that’s a good thing! Plus you don’t have to pull weeds gardening in containers. What’s not to like?
You tell me. How is your garden growing, or what is already fizzling out? If it’s still cold, what do you plan to plant when it warms up? Do you prefer ground or container gardening?
And then if you just hate to get your hands dirty, what’s your favorite flower? What kind of bouquets do you favor or love having sent to you? Or maybe you prefer houseplants?
Gonna go top off this coffee. I’ll have to tend to business IF the plumber comes. At this point, I’m not betting they’ll show up either. If not, I’ll still be washing my clothes in the kitchen sink for awhile.
