Some of you May remember in an earlier post I asked for some gardening advice. Well, I got a little, from several readers and now I am off to try out my green thumb!
I went with my Mama to Lowe's on Saturday and decided on what plants I am going to use. I have a really pretty tree that is planted along the edge of our yard close to the street, right by the mail box. I am going to by some of the edger blocks and build up the area around the tree.
Last summer, I planted a few things around the tree, but all the soil I put there washed away when it rained. So Mama gave me the great advice to build up the area, so the soil can't wash away. Have any of you ever used these brick edgers? But I was excited to see that a couple of my plants that I planted, did survive the Chicago winter.
I am planning on planting Creeping phlox under my tree. I also found a the cutest wrought iron wheel barrel that someone left by the curb for the garbage man to pick up. I saved it and I think, but not sure that I will be planting geraniums in it, or maybe impatiens.
My camera is broken, so I am going to have to buy a new one. Sorry I can provide any pictures of the yard.
I am feeling some better today. Not so much tummy problems. But I am still taking it easy. Thanks for the prayers!!
I am just wondering, what's the spring weather like at your house? Here it's 36 degrees, and we are expecting a few snow flakes. Ughhhh!! I want warm sunshine. The weatherman promises that by Saturday we are going to hit 80 degrees. I'll believe it when I see it.
Remember to pray for Stellan, as he is having his surgery today.
Love Ya, Renee
