It's been that kind of a day....
I did some hemming on the towels just off the loom;
struggled with the cutch grass that is growing up around the perennial sweet peas;
made some scones;
wrote a letter;
paid the monthly bills
and planted the lettuce and herb plants that I bought at the garden store on Saturday!!!
That was quite an adventure, -
one shared with our youngest son
who kindly and cheerfully accompanied me to Don and Anna's Greenhouses,
as I mentioned in my last post,
and where I tried very hard not to be overly indulgent,
but came home with three boxes of tender plants,
besides Callie's rosebush.....
Lots of white and purple alyssum and a few pots of marigolds,
some evening scented stock,
a bit of blue flax
and that other plant (whose name escapes me right now)
that is small and borderlike and has the most brilliant tiny blue flowers.
Oh, and some zinnias! All different colours.
Some lemon balm, and a few daisylike plants
for the big green pot that sits out the back.
I didn't get any geraniums
and there were no nicotiana plants available
but I bought some seed
in hopes that I can plant a pot to put beside
the back patio swing
to scent the night air.
May continues to be the fairest of months...
still sunny, warm and breezy
and lots of birds around...
It's hard to stay
what with the scent of the blossoms
and the tenderness of the new green leaves
