It's the sort of day that makes even a non-gardener like me itch to go out and plant something. I know, patience...but oooh, I'm itching to go play! Until I can buy some seeds and soil and get busy with pots and garden beds, I am whiling away a little time perusing various seed sources.
Casa de Crazy doesn't have a ton of planting space right now. We have a few beds for vegetables, an Iris bed, and a strawberry patch, plus a couple of blueberry plants. There's a nice bit of earth in front of the house that wants amending and then it'll be grand for something. I am feeling flowerish.
I want to plant my morning glories in the usual spot to the side of the stairs so they can climb their trellises and on up the house.
I found some cornflowers that I would love to plant, and some larkspur. Hollyhocks. Sweet peas. Sunflowers. Bells of Ireland look intriguing. Nasturtium.
There are herbs I'd love to make a bed for, and of course the many vegetables and fruits...oh, I would love to have so many things, but as the summer comes on and the sun beats down, I will not be able to go out and nurture such a garden, so I'll have to keep it small and simply sigh over the catalog pictures, dreaming dreams of growing things, of fresh vegetables and vibrant flowers and a different life.
