You all have been such good garden pals with such positive replies to my whiny posts .. so I want to say thank you all and I hope I am out of this whiny stage now for all of our sakes ? !!
These will be the last pictures of the old deck and incredible mess of a garden I have for now. Good news from the deck crew is that both permits are now issued .. the destruction one and the CONSTRUCTION one .. so when the weather allows, things will move forward finally .. I bet you guys are so relieved not to have to hear me whine about this for a while at least ?
Funny .. the deck looks small in these pictures .. maybe in its age it has shriveled up a bit ?
So what does a body do to enhance their garden mood ? ........ go shopping .... back to Costco for the bag o' blooms mission ?
It was just too funny to find Chocolate Cosmos ? .. I bought some little chocolate Easter bunnies from another store and when I saw these .. well .. I couldn't possibly pass them up now could I ? I have been wanting to get these for a few years now .. serendipity ?? for today ?
Bunny smelling the Cosmos pose ? .. I have read they truly do smell faintly of chocolate ? can anyone confirm that rumour for me ??
They are just so pretty in the picture .. I hope they will thrive in their new home when I eventually get them in the garden .. I think they will be happy sharing a nice sun bed with my coneflowers ... I also bought a BIG pale of bone meal to make my new plants a little happier .. I think bone meal for plants is like chocolate for gardeners ? we all get that happy feeling ??
P.S. Yes ! I know it is tender in my zone .. I can treat it as an annual and just enjoy it for the season or lift it and try to over winter it inside .. which I will probably do .. if I find it looks heavenly enough ? : )
