New Plants and Pot, a gift from Misha.
Yesterday when Rocky went home and Misha surprised me with some plants that she grew and a gorgeous new heavy pot as a way to say "Thank you" for caring for Rocky. This afternoon I potted the other plants and I am going to plant the white Angel Trumpets in the huge new pot. Don't worry, I am keeping the Angel Trumpet away from our dogs. It's deadly to them and people and I am going to handle it with gloves for good measure.
I ordered some seeds for Plumeria and Adenium plants. I can not wait to get them and try my hand at growing them. They are so exotic and that is the theme I am going for. I've already let Misha know that she will have to help me grow these beauties. It takes three years from seed to bloom. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens.:)
Also went boating out on the lake with Thad this afternoon. It was really nice. Hot but nice. I got darker with all that Southern sunshine.
My Zinnia's are already coming up. And so are our Calendulas. I need more starter pots though I am starting to run out.:) I guess that is a good problem to have, huh? I'm trying to learn as much as I can about gardening. I'll also have to learn about having a pond garden because that is going to be one of the best features of the new backyard. Ian will be the one to care for the fish in the pond. I know that he will enjoy that.
So, much to do.
