January 4, 2011 1 Comment
Sunday was a beautiful day here in Humboldt and when we arrived home from breakfast with our friends, I told DH I thought he should mow the lawn and prune the rosebushes. He started to complain and as we turned the corner, our neighbor was out mowing his lawn. We pulled in to our driveway, he but the motor and came over to talk to DH as I got my granddaughter out of the car and into the house. A few minutes later he was getting the lawnmower out and proceeded to work all day in our yard. Before he trimmed back all our plants, roses and flowers he did manage to cut a few.
Here they are in my windowseal along with a few others:
The Kalanchoe and little mum are both from the same neighbors. They are a young couple whose parents both live out of state. We tend to “watch over them” and they are quite generous in their thanks.
This paperwhite is also from Amy next door, and I bought myself the Amarylis this year. It is just about ready to bloom.
I have not ordered from seed catalogs as we have just started gardening again, now that the kids are grown and we are not traveling every weekend here or there, chasing around the sporting events that kept us busy for so many years.
I am looking at an Oregon Cottage (http://www.anoregoncottage.com/2011/01/tuesday-garden-party-favorite-garden.html) picks for seed catalogs and am thinking of calling and requesting a couple!
