A Little Gardening

After waiting for that last freeze to happen, I gave up and bought my plants today. It was a blistering 82 degrees, not the Nebraska spring we're used to at all. I'm sure we still have a chance for a blizzard, but my little plants will just have to deal.
These are some shady little ones for the planter. I love the pink ones!

Here's my recent HyVee purchase. Those two plants on the left will start to grow over the side and get all tangled up in the bike. That's the hope!

Mr. Gnome Husker got some company today. I bought 2 planters at Hobby Lobby and it was 50% off all the pottery. Quite a steal. There are two ornamental grasses in the back that will hopefully shoot right up and give this some height. I'm so glad I went to Earl May and actually found someone with some knowledge. They led me in the right direction and showed me a lot of choices. What I was shocked at was the total bill. I haven't planted anything in my life and holy cow, it was pricey. But I think the finished product is worth it.

  1. Jill, I love your little backyard seating area! So adorable. Jeff and I just bought plants too this past weekend. I actually got a little terrarium from Crate and Barrel, so I put a little ivy and succulent inside on my table - lovely.
