So yesterday happened to be the first day that I was home during daylight hours AND there was actual day light with NO snow or rain. A seemingly unique occurence for this time of year in my neck of the woods. And I kinda took advantage of it. A little bit. Then I got distracted. I blame the dog.
We had some of those mini colored Calla Lilies that started to come back up this year, so I put one of those in a pot and put that under our Japanese Maple next to our lazy frog.
I also got into the herb section of our garden and pulled out the oregano and broke that up. One half went in with some garlic (and that pot seems to be highly interesting to our cat) and the other half went into a small pot that I think we're going to bring upstairs. And I moved our Sage. I need to get in this week and thin out the Garlic,or move it around so they have some breathing room. They are a little cramped right now. . .
My mom's husband pulled out the frames from last year, and I just kind of scoped it all out. I took some before pics since the weather should hold this week so I whould be able to get a lot done.
I am going to try and put in a new 9'x9' Flower Patch in the back corner of our gate, and maybe next year put in another 3' wide bed down the length of our fence.
And then there's our walkway. I can't put anything in the ground along the walkway - between the dogs and the kids, there wouldn't be much of a chance for any plant to survive there, but I can put them in the built in beds on the left as long as they will get a long with the Maple currently living in there. Was planning on checking out some shade plants IF my seed catalog ever comes in. . .
