I'm real dirty
Today we did the most of our planting in the garden! A glorious afternoon spent (: We've got, so far:
four kinds of sunflowers (I'm growing a sunflower house!)
a mix of different greens
pink pampas grass
tomatoes - a few different varieties
orange pumpkins + white pumpkins
lemon verbena (I LOVE anything lemon. It makes me so happy)
We still have a few little spots that are unspoken for. My sis is tired of her garden and so I'll zip to her place this week and dig up her hollyhocks, foxgloves and whatever else happens to be growing in her wild and untamed garden, and hope that they transplant well (: She is eager to adopt an easier-to-maintain garden look whereas I would love to amass hundreds of veggies, plants and flowers in our one garden plot (-;
Honestly, this garden is going to be absolutely unbelievably beautiful! Jason built a twig fence around the entirety of its circumference and constructed a gate to match. Mom donated her pretty garden globe for the center of the herb garden and we're adding touches of rocks and obsidian for borders and wooden slabs for pathways. And did I mention the sunflower house I've planted? That will indeed be magical when it blooms: four kinds of sunflowers for the walls ~ morning glories for the roof ~ I can't wait!
Getting my hands dirty, it brings me so much joy!
