I have been stuffing plant information tags into that manilla envelope since 1989. Is it any wonder it finally split its sides?
I have been thinking about organizing these things for the past couple of years, but just never got around to it.
Often when posting to this blog I need to go through old tags to find the name of a plant.
This weekend I was looking for the name of the orange Asiatic lilies in the post below. I think they look very much like the tango lilies I just ordered from Breck's. While searching, I became so frustrated with this mess that I decided the time had come to straighten it out.
I took a binder and some plastic sheets. I sorted the tags by type of flower and made a label with each flower, i.e. Daylilies, Herbs, Annuals, Shrubs, etc. Now I can find the label so much faster. I never did find the label for the orange lilies. Now I am wondering if I have another envelope someplace else.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
