The sun is shining

With the sun shining so brightly, it is hard not to think about gardening. D and I are pruning grapes out of control. Hydrangeas are pruned. A little garden clean-up.

Mr. Brown Thumb is a wonderful and informational garden site, how to collect Allium seeds and how to save seeds

Mom told me lettuce was $3.99 the other day and we were talking about growing some, somewhere in the backyard, Farm in a Box is an interesting idea. Really loving Urban Gardens, getting hung up on wood.

How to make a Moss Chair and this A chair made of moss! I am going to make a couple these this summer.


I love A Way to Garden

Ugh! And I thought 2.49 for a small head of Iceberg lettuce was high!

Kim Carney said...

Thank you Shelley! I wish I could help, I am losing my skills and getting bored ;)

Peruby ... we eat a lot of lettuce, but I think Costco still has a good deal on Romaine!

Kim, This may appeal. It certainly does to me. http://www.homegrown.org/profiles/blogs/repurposed-raingutters-as

Also I don't know if you get them in the USA but cut and come again salad leaves are a must and so easy to grown. I have an old wooden sheep trough that is perfect.

As always beautiful floral photos

Yes Amanda, I have seen those! Talk to my neighbor about putting those on our houses ;) My neighbor has a nice warm spot on the side of her house that I think would be perfect for a couple of those. I have one spot that is warm and sunny. ') the rest cold and wet.

I've wanted to do a moss sculpture in the yard. Why not, all this moss. Lol actually I'm growing Irish moss which grows fast if I can keep the buttercups away. I'm thinking a woman lying on her side would be interesting.
So many ideas, spring, up.
Love the chair idea too.

Nice shot of the, is that a japonica? I forget.
