You know, I'm not new to the gardening game, so why am I sore in different spots every day? After several weeks of digging, lifting, raking, squatting, bending, you'd think I should have worked all the muscle groups.
Must be getting old.
So Tuesday, my only son left at home didn't have to rush off to work and I prevailed upon him to go to Costco with me so I could get lots of potting soil. Guess what - the shipment hadn't come in. OK, Kyle said Wednesday would be better for him anyway so off we went again yesterday. Success! And since strong son was along, I bought 10 bags of the stuff.
In the afternoon I plugged the plants I'd gathered over the weekend into the three big pots in the back yard. Since son Geoff is getting married the end of June, we'll be hosting the rehearsal dinner here, and I'm praying the weather is wonderful so we can dine out back - it's the prettiest part of my home.
The color scheme for the wedding is lavender and yellow, so the plants I chose for my pots this year are all purple/lavender and yellow.
More pots to go, but don't think I'll get to it today. Must visit the dentist and there's a track meet today. Kirsten has already qualified for districts! She's really having a good year with shot and discus.
Last night I took up the sweet little robin piece and got in the branches and some leaves. I think this is my favorite part - love those lazy-daisy stitches.
The iris are still going strong.
Thanks for stopping by my place! I'm off to the dentist.
