Spring Salutations from Southern Indiana, Part II
Between the recent rains I have been able to get a few things done in my garden. Come along and see...
Along with 6 bricks and one perforated pizza pan and about 18 gallons of water, we have a dwarf giant papyrus (hey, I don't make these things up), a variegated water celery plant and a bog spiderwort. And I know that in a couple of months we will have tadpoles.
Now if you recall, I showed you this pot a month or so ago. The chives and the thyme were just awakening from their long winter's rest. I have added oregano to the pot.
I found a mix of mesclun and have potted that, along with some garlic and shallots.
I am trying something new here. As these pots must be in the full southern sun from sunrise to sunset, the plants must necessarily be hardy and drought resistant. Believe me when I tell you that even watering once a day - everyday - is not enough here.
Now admit it. You are in envy of my beautiful potting shed. I designed this myself. I even made the potting bench myself. I am so proud of me.
My white dogwood is just beginning to bloom.
And so is the pink dogwood.
And here is my latest plant, a fuchsia.
Oh, all right. This is my 'potting shed'. Unfortunately for me, the real thing is not nearly as nice. Must you be so mean?
