The Great Outdoors

The great outdoors, a far away place for some. I enjoy the great outdoors. I love to camp, swim, walk, boat, hunt, fish, .... I have grown up watching my mother work in the garden during the summer and I have decided that now is the time for me to follow her lead and continue to enjoy the great outdoors in a new way. My mother has decided to completely tear out her flower gardens this year. If you knew my mother, you would understand that next year she will spend countless hours and money recreating these flower gardens. If mom isn't going to have beautiful flowers for me to sit and look at I am going to have to put in the labor and create my own oasis. Come along for the ride and see how a true novice makes it this year in the flower garden. Who knows, maybe I will even try vegetables next year.

Discouraging Delays

Today is Saturday, the day that I was planning on purchasing many of the plants and actually really getting started. There has been a break in the rain, and yet the ground here at my house is still so soaked that I am not going to be able to do anything today. I am quite disappointed but I am going to enjoy spending the weekend with friends and family. I will be going later in the week when things start to dry and buy plants and planting materials. Rain is a good thing and right now an inconvenience.
This week calls for more rain and hopefully some sunshine and breezy days to dry the ground a little. This is going to be a productive week. I am hoping to post before and after pictures of my progress throughout this week. Sunshiny days to you all.
