Today was one of those days: I could garden or I could blog about gardening, but I couldn’t do both.
Gardening won! With great joy, I replanted the sidewalk strip with a bounty of perennials. I’ve reserved a spot along the sidewalk and away from the street for carrots. I have several cell packs in reserve for next week, when my neighbor’s day care kids will get to ‘plant a row.’ The children love playing on my ramp and deck, and last year helped me plant a few bulbs. I know they’ll have fun planting the carrots and watching them grow. I also bought a packet of sweet peas, and *bonus* a sweet little climbing trellis. It creates a nice focal point in the center of the garden.
Darkness fell by the time I finished planting, watering and putting away my tools. I promise a better set of pictures by daylight soon.
And with that, this happy gardener is taking her aching back to bed. Sweet peas…I mean dreams.
