Solstice - Catching up

I know it's been a while since I last posted. A lot has happened lately and I've not had time to chronicle my adventures in a timely manner. I'm sure that you as fellow gardeners are in similar positions at this time of year too (mostly bent over or lugging something heavy from one place to another, no doubt!).

I'm trying to catch up on my posts. To that effect you can see that 3 of my 4 additional blog pages (see top of sidebar) have been updated with newsy items with lots of pics.

To read how planting out into the new Ring garden is progressing, click HERE.

To follow my exciting tomato adventures, click HERE.

And finally to find out how my basement attempts at rooting hard- and softwood cuttings turned out, click HERE.

Meanwhile I've posted a picture of the arbor garden. The 3 hollyhocks started from seeds last spring have surprised the heck out of me by their rapid growth this year. The one closest to the arbor is well over 6' tall and still growing. I can't wait to see what colors they are.

And from reading my current posts, you'll know that while there is a nice comfy chair shown in the picture, it never gets used and is obviously just for show. ;-D


  1. Wow! You have been VERY busy. Looks like everything you touch grows :) Cant' wait to see more of the Ring Garden.

  2. Thanks, Catherine. While I want to see lots of blooms immediately (now, now, now!) in the Ring Garden, I know that perennials take time to establish. I must be calm, patient... moi??? *hah* ;-D

    Meanwhile the bees are busy with a lawnful of blooming white clover and the Walker's Low catmint (that stuff is awesome!).


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your notes, comments and questions and will try to reply to each one! :-)
