We made flower head wreaths, feasted and danced the Maypole.
This week as I walked the back yard picking vegetables and discovering new blooms (our cactus has two BIG flowers that sprouted seemingly overnight!), I realized that this year is going to be doubly blessed. We planted two full veggie gardens here in the valley…and then we’re transporting tomatoes and any other plants we can, up to the cabin to plant gardens there in two weeks! Yes, it’s a gigantic amount of work. But it’s worth it for this gardening family to be able to remain surrounded by Mother Nature’s bounty for a long, extended growing season.
Thank you to the Pinewood Fire Department from supplying collection bags!
Black hollyhock (if I can find it)
Datura (D. Wrightii)
Tobacco, Azteca (Nicotiana)
We’re also replenishing our pots of lemon grass. The dogs ate this winter’s big pot down to its last inch.
The neighbor also likes to snip it to use in his Thai chicken soup, so we planted an extra pot for Bob, and I’m sure he will have us over for a Thai meal this summer.
t’s going to be a really busy planting year! In fact, it will probably take us two seasons, but the plans are all in place.
Sparkly garden magic to you!
