the shorter those long legs look. Maybe I've gone into my second childhood, building a playhouse and such...don't the say old folks eventually enter into a second childhood? :)
It sure is fun looking for things to add to my little playhouse. Shoot, I just might put up curtains and a little bed and move in.
Actually I've been busy planting the garden, AND playing house...
Not much to see just yet, but maybe soon.
I did build three tee pees from saplings, for the cucumber and squash vines. You can see a little of them over to the left.
Yesterday, I tackled the hardest job yet! Let me tell you about the worst gardening mistake ever made!!
a few years ago I set out ten small azaleas along the path to the shed. Then, for a border, a row of liriope or monkey grass. Oh my gosh! Was that ever a mistake! The entire row of azaleas looks like this.
This is about half way down the row. What a back-breaking job! Liriope will not pull out of the ground! I've chopped and pulled, and tugged away at this mess, then added rich soil from the back of the chicken lot, then covered it with pine straw.
Still have this end to go. This is one job I'm looking forward to crossing off my list!
In places, we have a quarter inch of snow---ball blossoms covering the ground.
One last picture. Sure hate to see it go, but what a delight this has been.
Better finish up here and get busy. It is now 6:30 am...Poppy has gone to work, and I want to be in the garden by 8:30.
There is a good article in the May issue of Better Homes & Gardens about Russ and Marion Morash, who started the TV series, "The Victory Garden". Russ grows pole beans on 10' bamboo poles plunged 2' into the ground. I don't have bamboo poles, but there are plenty more saplings to cut.
This was going to be a short quick post. :) Hope to be back soon.
