It was a beautiful day Sunday, when I went out to putz a little in my garden patches. Mid 70sF, sunny, low humidity. Days like that are rare around here.
Things seem to be going really well so far, with the exception of one pot of pansies. Oddly, I’m pretty sure it’s the same pot I had trouble with last year, so I’m wondering if there’s something wrong with the soil in the pot. It’s the pot the resident chipmunk seems to prefer, and so far he’s run off with one of the sticky traps I put there for him. Next time, I’m going hardcore. I have traditional mousetraps. I didn’t want to have to resort to that, but … there is it.
I’m sure I overdid it in my urn pot. I couldn’t seem to help myself. I kept saying, “Just one more plant in here, it’s a deep pot, it’ll look nice!” I’ll just have to see how it goes and keep my fingers crossed that nothing has to be taken out due to over-crowding.
There will be lilies! The bushes are so huge and I’m hoping for an abundance of flowers. Last year they lasted for weeks. I also managed to get rid of the gigantic spiky weed that was growing under this one. Whew!
My other new baby – a white lavender. I needed just one more plant to fill in a blank space so I ordered this one from Amazon. I just got it planted Sunday.
That’s how my garden’s been growing. How’s yours coming along?
