My sled planter is all wrapped up for the cold night ahead.
I am so glad I did not plant all of my containers last week! After nearly 20 years of gardening, I have finally learned to hold off planting the annuals until the end of May. No matter how warm it is during early spring, it ALWAYS frosts in mid to late May (sometimes even in June).
Well, now, how did that dandelion get right in the middle of my creeping phlox? I really MUST get out this weekend and get the garden shaped up.
I have a ton of creeping phlox almost in full bloom. This is just a small portion of it. I really need to get a picture after the sun goes down, but I wanted to make a post now, so these pictures will have to do.
My apple tree in the front yard is full of white flowers . The bees and I will enjoy it until they all fall to the ground in the next few days. I think these red and yellow tulips are 'parrot' tulips. I am anxiously awaiting the grand opening of the flamboyant petals. Parrots are very showy flowers and I really must get more of them. I am so into showy and dramatic these past few years.
That's about all I have for today. I have not been doing much of interest this week--just working. Since I haven't posted in a few days so I wanted to get a little something done tonight. Hopefully I will do something postworthy this weekend. :)
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.
