I posted this in the wrong place last nite so here it is in the proper home now...
Well I gotta brag... My 3yr old is just about the BEST garden helper I think I have ever had! She's entertainment,conversation, and helping hands all rolled into one. For the past 3 hrs we've been outside-- we have transplanted a plum tree
, 2 rose
-of sharon sprouts, and trimmed dead limbs from another grown plum tree
. I also had some day lillies
that my neighbor had given me that I just stuck in an old wheel barrow and threw some dirt on and left them there-- we took about half of those and filled a back corner of the yard.
BTW-- can you believe the lillies
in the wheelbarrow are putting out blooms!?! It really suprised me! My stella de oro's I have planted by my front steps are loaded with blooms. A lot of which are already opening. (I'm already having to deadhead them...) And believe it or not I think my sick rose
might just make it. I've been doing some reading and I think it has canker disease. Its a fungus that gets into cuts or openings in the canes,especially when they first come out of dormancy. There is no cure-- you just have to cut off all the bad places and burn it and hope for the best...
Well it's just the 2 of us here and I had to tell somebody what I did so there ya go... See ya round!
one more BTW-- I posted a really great recipe today. I made them for our churcch's youth dinner theater fund raiser and I'v already had about 15 or 20 people want to pay me to make them for them. that was until I told them how easy they were then they just wanted the recipe!
--then I have an appointment with a yard that is going to kindly donate to me some fern, some very tall iris looking plants
that are about 4&1/2 tall and a few banana tree plants
But then again-- WHO in their right mind would want to???
Read you guys this P.M.
