You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt.

Saturday Jumpstart

Went to Lowes and Home Depot today to check out their perennials. It's still really early, but I found a few things.

The haul.

I'm trying to fill up the little roadside garden. I planted Mediterranean pink heather, sedum 'Stonecrop', lithodora 'Heavenly Blue', and stachys 'Silver Carpet'. I also planted a hardy geranium 'Striata' that I never got planted last year.



Planted hollies in pots and geraniums. I'm thinking of toning down the blue doors with some stain. I really just need new front doors.

I also bought lettuce seeds, gourmet greens mixture, and sunflower seeds.

I moved my good and evil girl.

Pitiful pansies! I haven't finished weeding this garden. I'm hoping to fill it up with lots of foxgloves and other cottagey flowers.

Bad chicken!

The chickens are adorable!It looks like you hit the jackpot of great flowers to plant. I too have been hunting for flowers at garden stores, I have planted the shirley Poppies, Forget me nots, and am ordering my David Austins and seeds for Nicotiana Sylvestris!

Thanks for your note! It's definitely spring, isn't it? Here in Charlotte they are forecasting a freeze this week. Oh, gosh.

I like your shopping spree! I'm going to wait a little while longer.

That chicken! LOL!
