My day did not have an auspicious beginning! First thing this morning I tipped my very full very large mug of hot coffee and managed to soak both our placemats, the table and floor. What a mess!
But the day got better; We cleaned up the mess and started over.
Yesterday my DH finished the raised garden box . I was inspired by the one Nancy had on her blog Cozy Thyme Cottage. (In the background you can see my Crocus just waiting for some sunshine so they can open. It rained all day though.)
He also made 2 plastic covered "greenhouses" to fit overtop ( they still need handles to I can remove them on sunny days)
We went to Home Depot and bought onion sets...
and I saw these Gladiola Murielae bulbs ( also called Abyssinian Gladiolus). They jumped
into my cart as well as some fertilizer marked half price because it was last year's stock.
I used to have Cosmos in my garden and it self sowed so enthusiastically that one year I pulled it all out. This new kind grows only 12-14 inches tall and look at the colours!! The ones I used to have were either purple or white.
So now we, like the Crocus, wait for sunny warm weather.
Thanks for coming by... have a great week.
