A simple question...what are you doing now that spring is here?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Mon May 08, 2017 8:55 am

For those not seeing spring...what time of year is it for you and what are you up to?

I have been planting lots of flowers in our front yard garden. Mostly annuals so far, like petunias and pansies, marigolds, celosia, vincas, snapdragons and dianthus. I also want to get some zinnias, coleus, portulaca, brown eyed susans, coneflowers and impatiens.

That's quite a list! For flowers, I haven't planted anything outside and most of it comes back without any help from me. I did plant calendula flowers because I use them for soap making and tea...

Cone flowers? Echinacea?
You have mentioned some I don't know or may know by different names.
My indoors look like a greenhouse! lol Corn, peas, cucumbers, parsley, peppers and tomatoes, pumpkins, squash and whatnot! I love seeing it all! lol The flowers are finally looking good outside!
Are you going to share any pictures, Tater?

Yes, coneflowers are echinacea (Often purple coneflowers). And portulaca is moss rose, celosia is also known as cock's comb. Brown eyed susans are also known as rudbeckia.

I will try to share some pics once the garden fills out a bit.

Do you have any lavender for soap making?

The big, round planter is my fairy garden gone wild. lol I brought it inside when it got too cold to keep it outside. The tall plant is a tomato plant from last year. It now has blossoms and is outdoors waiting to be pollinated. lol
My bleeding hearts and a few other things. smile2

There are a lot of different species/varieties of lavender. Some of them are perennials. Lavender is known for its fragrance and is often used in soaps, potpourri, and the like.

I've got some "before" pictures, but it might take a while to figure out how to upload them since it's been a while. I want to take new pics every week or so, to show the progress the flowers are making.

Meanwhile, I am trying to figure out who or what is eating the marigolds.

Hello Tater smile2
I found out you can upload all pictures at one time! lol Kind of sad that the person supposedly running this doesn't know much!
As for those marigolds...not sure, but something sure liked the echinacea flowers..just the leaves first growing! And I believe a chipmunk was digging up my corn plants!

When I click on the icon for "host an image", I get the option to post files or URL. Since we may not see all things the same, my "host an image" icon is in the second row of options, first one in line. A square with a smaller square in the right, bottom corner. When you choose files, you add as many as you have and then click to add all.

The Dusty Miller somehow made it through the winter, even though it's considered man annual here, and the Hostas are a perennial, but everything else was planted within the last week or so. We have had extremes from the 90's to to the low 40's since they've been planted, and have had everything from torrential rains to dry heat. I've been trying my best to give the plants what they need, but it's been rough.
