OK .. I am finally pulling my finger out and trying to organize my erratic garden brain.
I am still buying plants against my better judgement, but my design brain says :
"how cool will this look next year !!" .. does your garden brain do that too?
In constant conflict with itself about practical/economical matters and dreamy designs that may come true?
It is tiring, I'm exhausted!
First I want to link to a new garden friend Martine, all the way over in Alsace, France.
Living on a vineyard in the beautiful countryside, creating gardens, and new to blogging about it all.
I just became acquainted with her when she contacted me about enjoying Canada so much, which of course I love hearing so right away she got my attention : )
Another attention getter was her tool review .. a gadget I haven't seen before .. a great idea and I'm sure it has to be over here but like I said I haven't seen it.
This is the link to Martine's BLOG and review .. just simply translate it to English and have a look !
As for me ? .. like I said my brain is "busted" I have no control and I am still buying plants ...
This last adventure yesterday gathered in a plain but beautiful white hibiscus, a big pot of Cheyenne Spirit echinacea (yes I know I can't stop collecting those darn things!) .. creeping red thyme (who doesn't need more thyme?) .. another Rozanne geranium, Moonbeam coreopsis and some good garden soil.
BIG sigh ... this has to stop at some point right ?
HUGE news flash ... new PINK garden shoes :
Elaine girl I bought them at the Dollar Store so I followed your lead! haha
Some of the assorted sundry :
So this dedicated meme about plant, tool, or method we are using in our gardens.
I thought every Thursday, or second Thursday.
If you would like to pick something from your garden to give a review, we can all learn from each other.
Just us down to earth gardeners, letting other gardeners know about our own experiences.
For the plants it can be good or bad, but please let us know your grow zone, whether it applies to us.
I know some of us push our zones for the love of certain plants (Barry : ) .. so even if it is above our zone by a smidge ? we still might give it a try.
We all know about possible micro climates in certain areas of our gardens !
OK ... so this is the plan .. I just hope I can remember it is Thursday and step up to my own plan!! LOL
Casa Blanca opened Aug 1st .. it was a dull gray day and she was smiling at me.
