The weeds in my garden are going crazy!! the problem is I have too many garden beds, and when i think i am done... or well, i have to go back to garden bed # 1. Sorry that i am complaining but there is so much more to do! i want to move some plants that ... every year, they insist in coming up in a different spot. Plus i am sick of digging holes! and i want to have some time to stop and smell the flowers! If i had money, definitely a gardener would come handy... and then i could just ask: pull all the weeds, please dig 30 holes here ... and here .. and there. Wait! I plant the flowers! thank you! rsrsss! Dream on baby! and go back to... digging holes! rsrsss.
I took the whole week off. I had to study for my finals. It was sad, because on my break, i walked around the house, in my garden, and could not do a thing. There were weeds asking me to pull them off the ground, and i could not. I had no time. I wish some day, when i get older, i would have time to do every thing i love to do: be with my family, watch my garden grow and take care of it, and paint all the beautiful flowers that it has. That is not much is it?

Oh! yes, more holes. today i got 3 more roses, and again, digging more holes, deep and wide ones. While i was on the digging job, i decided to dig 2 more, to transplant 2 roses that were not doing so well on my rose garden( the previously owner rose garden) eventually when i get more ambiticious i will plant them on the right place, i hope. i am tired now, and i still have 3 more garden beds to go, Next week i have my finals, have to work 40 hours, plus and most my family to tend to. God help me!!!!!!

today i worked on my back patio. i added lavander all the way around it, i know they will do well there, because the only one i had there did very well, i just love them for tea, salads, and to put under my pillow. it gives a relaxing feeling, plus it is lovely. I moved many plants around ( from the previous owner). placed them on the spot i think they would be apreciated (do not no how to spell that world). Sorry i think and right out loud. Sometimes by the end of every spring i tell my self, i will never dig another hole, and still the following year there i am again. I have to post pictures.
I am knew with gardening as i already mentioned, but i think i can help some people with starting plants from seeds. It happen by mistake. I got a big glass jar with a top ( wallmart, marshalls, or home goods). I planted some tropical plants inside of it ( violets and others). This was over the winter, for my surprise every leaf of violet that fell , i got a new plant, and i waited 2 weeks and transplanted to a vase and put it back inside another jar until it would get stronger. GREAT! it worked, so i did the same thing with seeds. Guess what! With 2 days i had the seeds sprouting and growing right before my eyes! it works. Try it!
What you need:
White peebles, charcoal, and soil.
1 layer of peebles, 1 layer of charcoal, soil, and the seeds or plant. Enjoy!! Let me know if worked for you.

Today i finish cleaning my herb garden. I made a new pathway, and decided to frame the beds with bricks. It looks nice! Got all the flowers for my front porch, all planted too. Tomorrow i will plant a border of lavander on my back patio. My fish survived the cleaning i did on the pond. The roots of some irises are showing on top of the ground. I do not know if i should transplanted or not. Any one knows what to do?
For the last two days i have being cleaning my pond, which i made 2 years ago. Today was a frustating day, i knew i was going to get dirty and smelly, but what made me cry were the fish. I could not get them out, they were faster then i thought. Not realizing of what was happening, most of the water was out, and the fish had no were to go. I had to run to find a backet of water to put them in. That was the easy part, the hard part was to catch them, which i did, but falling in the muddy and cold pond was not in my plans. I had to catch them by hand, they jumped and fell on the ground, but i got them in the backet. After all of that i sat down i cried.

I am so happy!! Finally i can go outside and do some yard work. even though, gardening is new to me, it became my passion. Each year i learn more about my plants, what they like. ( some of them are a little spoiled, they love attention). My big problem is that when we moved to this house 3 years ago, the gardens were set up. I had no idea what was what. Some of the gardens were set up nice, but some were lacking background plants. it is missing something. Somebody, please help!
