I have never been much of an outdoor person. I am allergic to everything and really don't like being hot which is a bad thing since I live in Texas. However, this year I seem to have a change of heart -- I am ready to embrace the outdoors -- right after I take my Claritin.
Saturday we went for a little shopping at our neighborhood plant nursery and picked up just a very few things.
|Archie's Gardenland, Fort Worth, Texas|
|Lovely pink geraniums -- we didn't buy these|
|Peach and yellow Cannas -- or these|
|Very round, puffy hanging baskets with something purple in them - or these|
|Superbelles-- these came home with us!!|
|Lovely pink Superbells|
|The little crabapple tree we planted two years ago -- growing nicely|
|Crabapple tree with the Skullcap at the base|
|And yet more purslane|
|The large Crabapple tree on the side|
|Somewhere in this hot mess is Arlo and his fairy door. I think I will be relocating my little gnome as soon as I can find him!|
So, that is the garden early in the season. We have lots of work to do, everything needs to be washed down which I had intended to do today but it just didn't happen. I am looking forward to getting it all spiffed up, though, because I really want a cuppa out on my patio!
