Today I worked in our flower gardens by myself. :-( I hope everything survives. Paul is the one who had the green thumb. Not I. I put in Blueish Hostas, Lavender and Hens & Chicks.. I'm also trying to grow some lavender in a flower pot for the bedroom.
I check my baby plants everyday... Some are just starting to sprout. Others are not. I put tomato cages around the new Lilac Bushes so they bend or break in the heavy winds we keep having. They look good so far!
Here is my " Stone Rose Garden" that Paul made for me. Do you see the little angel there among the Purple Phox? That came in one of flower arrangements we got. ( Paul's Funeral ) I love it in the garden he made for me. ... The roses are just starting to Bud.
Thank You! The Planting Zone is 7... ( Midwest.) So it's warm in the Spring, Warmer in Summer, Cool & Comfy in Fall, and USUALLY cold in the winter. I like the 4 seasons :-)

Thank You! I'm trying to remember where zone 3 is... I'll look it up. :-)
It seems like I try about anything new that comes out to get rid of weeds. Nothing really works. :-(
Thank You! ... I have heard of Jacob's Tears. but have not seen them. I have Lily Of The Valley on one side of the house.
Do you have Mourning Doves ? I love listening to them. I have some shepards hooks for plants and Bird feeders. :-)
When I plant seeds, it usually doesn't come up. Now, when I TRANSPLANT something, it does great! Paul had the green thumb. I just helped out.
