any gardeners out there?


my neighbor has a gorgeous hydrangea
and I want one
does anyone know how and when to make a cutting
to make a new plant?


I have been saving my banana peels and coffee grounds
and my roses got their first dose of coffee hee hee


the peels are in the freezer and soon I will thaw them
and place them into the soil




and hopefully I will be rewarded with this



I save grounds all winter in empty peanut butter jars
I have four of them that I just emptied on the garden
the next batch will go to the side garden


and front garden


these little johnny jump ups are growing like wild
but in my lawn
I tried to transplant them last year
but I guess the birds must be bringing them back
oh yeah, a dandelion too just for fun
maybe I can get revenge and make
dandelion jelly? LOL
or WINE


Dunkin likes that I can grow things.
he loves cat grass
I get it once in a while for the cats


this is a goal for this year for the corner of the patio
last year it didnt happen
I used the pots all up for other things
but I want to put this in the corner
and add a chair so that when I am grilling
I have a nice place to rest



I will need to get this the next time I am out
I think someone had pots on sale 50% off this weekend
I gotta look and see



what are you doing in your garden to get ready for summer beauty?

  1. I can buy them and put them out and they die!

  2. Funny you should ask; I read yesterday that you can take cuttings from the lower, older branches and stick them in a pail of water until they root--like forsythias. I just cut some this morning--fingers crossed it'll work out...hugs, Julierose P.S. Nice roses and daffodils!
