I am sooo excited. I had to rush into the house to blog. Only GGer's would understand! I have read some of your entries about flowering almond plants. While reading, all I could think about was how much you all would have loved seeing my MIL's flowering almonds...beautiful! Tons of pale pink blooms. I had a small piece from some she had given me before she died. I brought this little thing to my new house and put it in the memory garden . Well, I thought It was gone. I haven't seen hide nor hair of it in ages. But guess what!!! It's coming up!!! Such a will to live!
Some people are sentimental about antiques (and I'm one of them) , but I'm soooooo sentimental about plants! I mean they are living things that our loved ones that have gone before us nurtured and loved and kept alive. I just want to "keep it going".
The garden is so exciting this time of year. Something around every corner. There is no way you can stroll through ,checking it all out, and not have a few burdens roll away or forgotten...even if only for a few minutes. God is so faithful to give us this gift EVERY year. And God knows a thing or two about gifts. The Best One He gave us 2,010 years ago!
Ya'll have a great day....and get in that dirt! Trish
Oh, the rain! How much more will the ground take? I NEED my dose of sunshine! But... my camellias are finally blooming. One is a beautiful deep pink color and the other 3 are a lighter pink. Guess that's my substitute sunshine.
I put a black plastic tarp over my garden the other day to try to kill off some weeds before I get to tilling. I did not take care of my little patch this winter! Next year I will put it to bed properly.
Well, it so dreary today, that I just don't see much in store except coffee and a good book. Hey! That doesn't sound too bad! P.S. for you readers out there...I just finished reading "The Help". It was sooo good! You will especially like it if you are from the south. Ya'll have a great day...and get in that dirt!!! (or a good book!) Trish
