It was a gorgeous day here Sunday, Mother’s Day. Low to mid 60sF, clear blue skies, low humidity – just lovely! My husband took me to the garden center, where I was able to replace the plants that I lost this past week due to all the wonky weather. Man that place was crowded! So I spent a little bit of time getting those potted, and I finally got my new perennial in the ground. In general, things are looking fairly decent. A few plants are struggling because of the recent cold snaps, but I do think they’ll recover with enough tender loving care.
The new section! Not sure what to call it yet – the patio patch? This is the “extension” I was working on a couple weeks ago. Before, the grass went to the edge of the patio, but now I’ve wrapped the patio with mulch and garden fencing. This enables me to get my long pots off the patio, and also gets the square pots out of the front patch. I love the symmetry of how it looks. Bonus, I’m hoping the extra fencing will keep critters and neighbor’s dogs off our patio.
That’s how my garden has been growing this week! How’s yours coming along?
