Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Putzing around in the garden

 
  
My poor garden, it was neglected for most of the summer this year..just not a priority at all. I think this is the first year in many that I didn't do very much in it.  It rather looks it. Well, ok it really looks neglected.  No vegatables came out of the garden this year, and the garlic bulbs I harvested in the spring small. I don't know what happened, they were 4' tall. 
 
I mentioned a while back about a spiral garden, and have set about collecting rocks, and my neighbors just
gave me some larger ones so that helped alot. Today I went out and began to see how that is going to be laid out. I'll need some dirt to make the spiral. I have this in my square foot box, so the weeds will be at a minimum.  I already have a Lavender plant in there and a Mum, both which will be on the outside parimeter of the spiral.
 
Allium,  time to plant those.  I've had my eye on these for a while, they won't go in the spiral, but I'll incorporate them
with the Black Eyed Susans, and the  Tiger Lillies.  So going to keep it simple and plant a few herbs in there and a few flowers.
 
What is an Alium you ask? You've probably seen them around for they are striking....here take a look...
 
 
 
On the agenda this week is to pick some up, they should be planted in the fall for a spring bloom.
