IN THE GARDEN-Already Dreaming Of Spring!
Let's take a peek at what's happening in the garden this week!
Well, we're at the point in summer where I generally run out of steam in the garden. I get tired of watering the pots every day and keeping up with the feeding schedule. That cement squirrel looks nice and tame, but soon the real ones will be digging up all of those pots while burying all sorts of goodies for their Springtime eating pleasure.
I forgot to take lots of pictures around the garden this week. But I did get a shot of these seed heads from the clematis growing up the windmill.
They always remind me of Cousin It from The Addams Family!
But don't go thinking that I'm all done gardening for the year. I'm already dreaming about Spring! I want to plant tulips like these this Fall in front of my red bike.
I must have these lilies!
And I want to start more flowers from seed next year. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a pretty greenhouse like this to start them in?
Oh and before I forget, about a hundred years ago, on August 19th, Mr. Old Glory and I got married. Happy Anniversary honeybunch!
