My Garden

Last week I went to the store to see if the plants had come in yet

The stores usually start stocking up on seeds and cool weather plants in February, and I am chomping at the bit to start growing stuff again.

I ended up getting a few packets of herb seeds and a few plants and flowers that were ready to go into the ground.

I got one of my favorites, the Hyacinth. They are so pretty and smell amazing.
This is what it looked like last week.

Then, a couple of days later...

And today...

I also got some Orange Mint, which I cannot wait to try in some iced tea.

I planted strawberries, cilantro, and pansies in my favorite color.

I also planted some Narcissus bulbs last month. They are finally blooming. I don't know how long they will last, but I sure hope it will be a while.
They are simply gorgeous. And they smell divine!

Later, I will update you on the Community Garden drama from last year and you can help me decide if I want to give it a try again this year.

But, today, just enjoy the sunshine and new life blooming all around.


  1. as a card-carrying member of the People Who Make Plants Die club, i am in absolute awe of you. what is your secret?? i can manage tomatoes and dandelions, and the rest of the plant kingdom flees in terror at the sight of me.

  2. Nic,

    A lot of trial and error. I have killed many, many things. I kill Hibiscus every time I try to grow it. Oh, and I research info on how to care for them. But mostly, just plant, just keep trying. Eventually you'll get the hang of it. :)
