Most of our plants and flowers made it through all the rain like little troopers. I was worried since most of them are drought tolerant, but they just went with the flow and soaked it all in. (Get it? Rain jokes.) I added this fairy door and walkway to the rock garden a while back, and I think a resident fairy must have been maintaining it during all the flooding. Its held together by magic.
Spring has hit in the front yard. The plants are coming back to life, and starting to grow into each other. Having a full, green flower garden is always the dream, right?
The rock garden is filling in nicely. I love the way the greenery grew around the pot. It makes me glad I left it right there all winter. We just added the little flower to the pot for the spring.
Our little herb garden is still going strong! The sage and rosemary have started to get very cozy together.
And the mint is spreading like wildflower. I just read that mint is a creeper, and should be contained in a pot, but oh well! Hopefully it realizes that rock boundary was an actual serious suggestion.
I have a working theory that everything I plant half dies, then, in its own sweet time, comes back to life and decides to grow. I am sure the crazy weather doesn’t help. If you left me outside in this, I would have to carefully consider coming back to life too. But I am happy to see our rock garden is finally starting to fill in a little bit. I also added that cactus in the pot for another layer, and he is just as happy as a clam there.
Some things I found this week:
- Speaking of molasses and pecans.
- I want to sew a simple tshirt, and add these tulip sleeves.
- Yum looking granola recipe.
- I loved overalls when I was younger. They are my garden clothes in my dreams.
- One of my fave instagram accounts.
I think it will be a pretty stressful weekend over here. We have to watch our grass seeds grow, look out for thunderstorms, and drink iced tea. Maybe go wander around the botanical garden if its not too humid out. So if you need us, we’ll be very, very busy.
