If we can have the shank of the evening — As in, You can’t leave now. Why, it’s just the shank of the evening! In other words, the fun is just beginning. — I’ve decided we can have the shank of Hump Day, and I’ve declared this is it.
A post in the shank of Hump Day, that’s what this is.
You can’t leave now. Why, it’s the just the shank of Hump Day!
Moving right along.
There should be a designated lane for those traveling to and from the garden centers/nurseries this time of year. A designated lane, I say.
Because I’m trying to fill every little pot, every little nook and cranny, every little everything with a pop of color and texture. A feast for the eyes and for me… the soul.
Sunvy, Super Gold, Sanvitalia
This little pot got put together today.
I’m scrounging anything that I think would make an interesting container from what I already have.
I’m still under the influence of Around The World in 80 Gardens, the patio gardens of Cordoba, Spain. This post.
Vista Salmon, Salvia
This is some landscaping or drainage rectangle I found at the side of the road. Salvaged for the salvia.
Isn’t that the most spectacular color?
The zinnias are looking all sparkly, strutting their color. Show-offs! One plant was lost to a late frost.
Dang frost. You can see the vacancy in the front on the right.
Zinnia plot available. Free for the asking.
Usually this container is filled with spinach and lettuce, but I wanted a big box of happy by the kitchen door.
Gratuitous snail with puddle shot after the rains. Can you find the snail?
Snails are not allowed in the garden containers, so they’re left to wander in the garden wilderness.
These are the days of their lives.
This is the right side of the garden crypt today. The two thymes and chives wintered-over from last year under a bed of straw.
They did beautifully. When the straw was first removed, there was nothing but twigs.
But I waited.
And look what happened.
The African Blue basil was just plunked in today. I don’t know what is going on with the basil. I’m growing some from seed, which is coming along nicely… so far. But I had to replace a tiny leaf basil I planted two weeks ago with the African Blue. It just dropped its leaves. Kinda slutty really. It wasn’t PG basil. You know what I’m saying?
To be continued…
For now, enjoy the shank of Hump Day.
