Been neglecting/ignoring my license renewal courses, my home, my family, the dentist & loving every minute of it. ‘Cause I’ve been around my second family here at GG. I know my immediate family understands cause they know I love GG & gardening. They always appreciate the end results of what I plant & they are supportive of all I do. I thank God for both my families. & praying for all those GG buddies who really need a little prayer from us.
My wedding anniversary is on Valentine day I’m excited about that. Hoping hubby will make it home. I need to finish my last course and get back to work!
I have patio designing left to do and need to plant some more vegetables. So of course I’ll sneak in once in a while but not as much.
Always have sweetlebee & meska to PM when I wont have time to post. Oh stop it! They are used to me already. heeheee. & I can PM all my cool GG buddies who don’t mind my silly question and answer them no matter how silly they are. Couldn’t do it without all of you. Big hugs
January was busy month for me. I built a greenhouse ; ) works great, thanks to all who gave me great advice at the forum.
Did I mention ; )
I planted carrot seeds, eggplant seeds, soybeans (yikes! lots of ‘em) chives, 3 different kinds of Datura & cilantro? I bought strawberries & two types of tomatoes? & I planted tons of freesia bulbs/corms yesterday and today. I’m gonna have lots ‘cause I planted some last year too. So excited about that.
I don’t know how it happed (could be I don’t remember exact time I planted them) tulips, hyacinths & daffodils are sticking their head out! I honestly thought they were gone for good. I thought I lost them during hubby’s project &/or the years they are suppose to last for...were over. I read hyacinths and tulips last about 6 years then we have to replant new bulbs. I guess this was wrong information. Sweetlebee helped me tons by answering my silly questions about tulips. Thanks sweetle. Believe me, I’m not complaining ‘cause the above mentioned bulbs are my favorites & I’m real happy about it. I’ll take pix when they bloom. I really have to plant lilies again ‘cause I miss mine a lot.
I finally prepared my new planter build on side of driveway. I also got the sprinklers to work, added dirt and bark. Then I planted roses of course. What else would I plant there? I’m just crazy about all types of roses as if no one guessed already? : )
My camellia, canna, geraniums, violets (?), allysum, bougainvilla & some roses did a great job of showing off to momma (that’s me : ). My fountain grass getting taller & taller & got a few surprises like potato and oxalis growing in my planters. My succulents? Well, they are succulents doing whatever they want to do.
Ugh! Hope my amaryllis, daylily & ginger the gardeners chopped up will grow back. Other than that all has been great.
Anyway, my last blog for a while. Hope I didn’t leave anything out ‘cause I know I’ll need this info for next year.
Thank you once again my GG buds, really you all helped me out tons. I appreciate it. : )
PS. I have uploaded some pictures of the above mentioned. But, have to upload the rest some other time. Believe me I'll sneak in as much as I can. You know I can't stay away too long. LOL, like it or not. xoxoxoxoxo
