O.K. little is the operative word here. I'm not anybody's version of a gardener, but I have been known to plant a few things.....every now and then.
Picking out plants is torture for me....I walked around for three minutes looking for the appropriate plants. I just said I was nobody's version of a gardener! But this is what I ended up with so I went straight home and did my version of planting. I think I just won't go into that. Let's just say I don't spend all day planting.
I had a particularly good reaction when I stumbled across these little beauties.
My next door neighbor gave me this pot of what I now know to be hostas several years ago. I set them down right there and haven't moved them. The first winter came and they died....deader than a doornail! I didn't think much about it until spring when much to my surprise they came back better than before! This has happened every winter and spring for oh, probably five years now. The point being, I knew they were a hardy plant to survive five years in my yard.
You can hardly see these little beauties, but they really are pretty. I think it's Mexican heather, correct me please if I'm wrong. They don't show up in the pictures but are really nice and will look better when we get new mulch put around them.
These, well these are another story. They aren't pretty. I do not like them.....when they die I will replace them with something prettier!
I also did a couple of things in the house.....
I bought these baskets to put under the church pew to store
This is a photo I took when we were vacationing at St. George Island last year. It really looks better without my reflection.
