A great day! GIFTS)))
It has been a "splendid" day...a special day of gifts and kind messages. Thank you to all our family and friends))) Where have the years gone? Please note above...the NEW SHOVEL!!
As the day began in rain, the Captain went to boats...and I tried to organize the labels of plants and seeds so I do not sound so UN knowledgeable when I blog about these things. Here is what I was faced with...but soon had them in baggies and tidied up!! Thanks to my favourite gardening vet who moved back out west...she left me all her seeds and then some....Tks A.
The Chief was pretty disgusted by the end of the day...wet, tired, hungry, dirty,...much earlier shorn of his winter coat((( kinda shivering......"heh, is that my ball?"
A walk around the garden was quite an eye opener. Patty's Plum Poppy is on steroids... The Captain measured the highest one..it is 47 inches. I don't think Patty is supposed to get that tall? Maybe I am wrong..must do a google... As you see...her color is not pure...so maybe she has a little gene in there that says...grow tall young lady!!...
We have two of these peonies...what a delicious color and noooo....didn't find the name tag!!!
I am quite surprised my Canon camera could do this shot.... is the photographer improving perhaps ))))))
So, all and all a good day..but need to get thinking about the vegetable garden and what to plant for fall/winter harvest. "Four-Season Harvest" by Eliot Coleman is "the book" for those who want to try to have greens growing just about up to Christmas in our neck of the woods. Great inspiration!
