Dianne, you can stop dancing now because I am off work for the next four days. That means it will be raining like crazy tomorrow because I want to work outside.
Oh well, I will have time to catch up on my blog reading.
Look at this delicious salad I just finished eating for dinner. It has chicken strips, mandarin oranges, and some of those cherries I bought yesterday. A sprinkling of Sesame Oriental dressing and it's a meal fit for a queen!
It was so good, I wish I was just starting to eat it now so I could relive the experience.
I took a little stroll through my water-deprived gardens a few minutes ago. There wasn't much worth noting. I did get a nice pic of this Sweet William, which is one of my favorite colors.
I have some really awful color combos out there right now. Last fall I planted some red/orange carpet lilies which are beginning to bloom and clashing like crazy with another Sweet William that has reseeded itself all over. I am waiting until a few more open to show you a pic.
By the way, all of the Sweet William you have seen on this blog, has reseeded from my original planting 20 years ago! Once you get it going, you will have it forever (even though it is a biennial).
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.
