All the stages in one bunch♥
Sun Sugar first to show flowers..Hi Pea!!
On their last breath most of them:(~
So we caught up well..
Lots gone already ..still some to happen..
It's a lot in 3-4 months..
a lot of prep..a lot of care..a lot of upkeep..
When my girls were young..
I had flower boxes and half barrels lol..period.
All the same flowers..impatiens..tuberous begonias geraniums.
Had no clue what to do.
It's when we moved in 86..that I started getting into it..
Our girls were 11 and 9..so maybe a few years after.
I met a friend who inspired me so much..she had been a client..and my first ever manager Rosemarie Faber.
They gave me my first love of gardening..
And so I started and had beautiful goutweed and grasses and obedient plants..all of which are not obedient;)
But wow the profusion..Got rid of all that..well meaning gardeners had offered me some..what the heck did I know..
Our home at that time was on a garden tour in AUGUST.
By then my gardens were done..parched and ugly.
Then we moved in 2001..
and I met Gardenbuddies♥
And my love of gardening..and buddies online..blossomed.
And here I am..lots of mistakes..would do so many things differently.
But at 65 I am not starting over ..LOL..
I have added loves..
One of them..garlic..
I collected the first batch of scapes and chopped many and froze..
then a friend of my daughters suggested garlic scape pesto♥
On pasta..ohmygosh good.
I used the NYTimes recipe w/ sunflower seeds.
Have a great weekend and Happy Canada Day to us and 4rth of July to our friends across the border~
