I am feeling very proud of myself today, I got so much done! I went to the post office to send Garbanzo and Mariposa on their way to South Carolina, then I headed over to Lowes.
For a long time I have wanted a garden. Don't ask me why, I have no idea how to garden. My Mother has a green thumb, but I certainly do not. The only things I grow well are roses and rubber trees.
But ever since we have lived in this house, I have wanted a garden...so finally this year R got an area ready for me.
He worked tirelessly for almost seven days clearing out the grass and rocks. There were a million rocks back there. Of course Buster and Jazzy helped him. Then he put up a fence. He still needs to put the piece across the top of the gate arbor and cut off the long post near the fence and add the shelf to it. Also I got a very pretty mosaic garden bench that needs to be assembled, but we will do all that this weekend.
But at long last, Sunday it was ready. I have spent the better part of five days planting things. Today I went to get flag stones for a path and some little lights.
Buster is looking mournful because he can't go in there now. If half of what I planted comes up, Then I will be very happy!
I cheated a little though, I got an Asian Lily. I wanted at least one thing blooming.
After I was done in the garden, I got a nice E-mail from ClockStikes12 to tell me she put Peppermint in her treasury. It's lovely you can go check it out here: Red For The Bull Treasury, and don't forget to check out her cute charms in her shop!
