One benefit is that the flower blooms last a lot longer than normal. My Clematis is gorgeous, but the peonies have been budded out for a couple of weeks but aren’t blooming.
Cold wet weather tends to affect my gardening exploits. I’ve done a little weeding and transplanting in between showers but not a lot. I did grow some corkscrew vines from seeds and set them out on our two arbors this weekend.
I have a wicking project to start, but it is too wet. We did get two yards of mulch taken care of last week and moved enough plants to set up a new sitting area in the shade of an oak tree, but it had been too cold and wet to sit out there. 🙂
Have you ever thought about vertical gardening? I just posted an article and a book giveaway on our Master Gardener blog in case you’re interested. Don’t want you to miss out on anything gardening related.
Last Friday, I went to an amazing class with Nancy Morgan, fabric artist, and want to try a small project. If you have an interest in hearing about her process let me know. I don’t want to bore everyone to sleep but would be glad to share if there is interest.
This screenshot of Goodwin Mansion in Strawbery Banke, Portsmouth, is from her website. It is 22×18″ and is all made with fabric. Her fabric skills blow me away.
Have a great week, and as we move into June, I hope your weather is sunnier than mine. 🙂
