PLANTS

 Melanie recently told me about this great company to order plants from called High Country Gardens. I think she was sick of me complaining about my dry sticks with roots I had been receiving and brought me catalog. ;-). I picked out a pre-planned garden called Summer Sanctuary. It's for a small space and I did this so I could still order and plant some "must haves" that I'd also picked out along with the pre-planned bed. hehe Anyway, I've impatiently been waiting on the UPS truck to get here--much like a mom waiting on a new baby--and today was the day! I am BEYOND THRILLED with these plants. They are big. They are green. They are happy. I am hoping to get them planted this weekend. Its suppose to storm tonight so I didn't want them to get beaten to death the first night they were in the ground!!

My herb garden is looking good. It makes me smile! I had ordered some Lavender, but Melanie also brought me some of her Lavender. It's a different kind than the one I ordered and I am so happy with it! It smells like Heaven!!  I recently came across some recipes with Lavender in a magazine I get and I'm anxious to try a couple of them.

We are hoping to get the tomatoes and peppers in the ground this weekend, but I need to look and see the next good planting days are. 


If you haven't been at my house lately my husband has been busy. If you are a tree or bush here on our property, you should be afraid. He has ripped and pulled out so many trees this season!! Its wonderful to have a more open yard. Love it!!

We also cleaned out our garage...which we had never ever used for anything except to store junk...and converted it into a bunny barn. No more running out to cover up the bunnies in the middle of a rain storm!! We have a new system of hanging cages in there. We are fancy now!!

Hope everyone is enjoying spring!

LOL - "dry sticks with roots!" A long time ago, a friend of mine ordered some bushes that would grow into a hedge. When she got them they were, like you say, dry sticks with roots. That new stuff you ordered sounds great. :)

That sounds interesting about how you have your rabbit cages in the garage now. That will be handy!
