More Annuals Planted and a Bit of Weeding

Planted 2 King Tut papyrus and 3 Augusta Blue Skies nierembergia, and weeded the front bed where I put the nierembergia.

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

I’ve been spending so much time out gardening I haven’t had time to read all my blogs. I’ve been planting alyssum, nicotiana, verbena, superbells, petunias, zinnias (5 different kinds) along with all my veggies. This sure is an exciting time in the garden, I can’t wait till August when everything is in full bloom!

Turkeys are a lot of fun to watch.
Good for you that you have one in your yard.

That turkey showed up one day and decided to stay. We keep her as a sort-of pet. Sort-of because she’s not affectionate or interested in humans, but she’s interesting to watch.
