Heavy sigh*** Can you see my bottom lip sticking out?
I was so pumped last week over the warmer weather and all the growing going on in in the flowerbeds then…….
this nasty stuff came along bringing with it winter again.
Even snow flurries are flying around here today just to remind us of Ohio’s fickle weather.
Kylee over at “Our Little Acre” says we gardeners are getting cranky. That is an understatement. I had been feeling like someone just stuck pins into my bouquet of balloons. LOL!
It is cold and dreary outdoors and the only green I am even
attempting to look at is the seedlings growing indoors.
The geraniums are growing up a storm and so are the petunias. The impatiens seeds I planted last week under the plastic lid are sprouting and look like they need a mowing.
Yes, I planted them that thick. I use so many of these shade loving flower cranker’s (Is that a word? LOL!) every year.
Other seedlings are just taking their own time about growing
but I am thankful they are growing.
But alas the only thing blooming indoors is the trusty violet.
You see I am really trying to think springtime thoughts by
putting out the chicks and bunnies. Its not working!
I was not so deflated that when the new rose bushes that I had ordered from Edmunds Roses came that I could not perk right up and get excited . I donned myself in a heavy jacket and gloves and worked in the Rose Garden while the sun was trying to peek through Monday.
You see you cannot just dig a hole and stick roses into a
rose garden you have to move things.
My favorite pastime is moving plants for those who
know me. I like to change things up like moving furniture around when you are tired of looking at it a certain way.
Good for a time or season but not so good for plants getting established.
My rose garden is on a banking along the garage so I wanted to divide and move in some cascading perennials to go around them. So having gotten my hands dirty and frozen the new rose additions were planted the banking rearranged and I had my gardening fix for the week. LOL!.
So meet the new ladies in the rose garden….

I am not affiliated with them but do recommend them for wonderful bare root roses at reasonable prices.
So having planted and vented I feel better now. LOL!
What are you doing to cope with the fickleness of spring weather to get your garden fix?
