Is it as busy at your house as it is here?
The gardens are doing well with some of the early bloomers starting to wind down like the Bleeding Hearts but the Jack in the Pulpit, Geranium Sanguine, and Iris are all coming into their own and the Poppies and Peonies are budded out. I’ve been trying to keep up with weeding and the moving of plants, so I’ve been busy.
We got our new travel trailer, 2014 Keystone Bullet, in place at its seasonal campsite. Then we started hauling the supplies which was no small task, and the site needed a little landscape tweaking so we spent yesterday moving, dividing, raking, leveling, etc.
The MG annual plant sale is this weekend. Besides working all day, I committed to supplying a bee house that could be raffled off in order to gather email addresses to send out plant sale notices next year.
My husband did the construction, and I did the stenciling.
I also had the bright idea to take a fairy house as an example of a fun gardening project to the MG sale. Thanks to my blogging friend, Vanha Talo Suomi in Finland, I tried a stone fairy house, and I think it turned out cute.
The medicinal garden that I’m working on at our local Woodman Museum is moving along. Yesterday, we moved the granite bench in place, a walkway is being reviewed, large Dogwood tree has been ordered, and a lovely wrought iron fence piece is being installed on the wall to hold a climbing plant. Now, we need the 30 or so plants used in that era for medicine and industrialization set, and we will be ready for their centennial celebration in July.
Anyone need some Hosta? I already have enough Hosta to cover a park, but what can a person do when these beauties need a home?
How’s it going at your house and garden as we approach the end of May?
