Remember when you use to have garden tools that were indestructible? When your shovel handle would break before you could bend the head? Well I can and I am amazed at how they make such wimpy garden tools these days. Mind you now, I was digging up a rose bush to move to the woodland bed and bent the shovel head clear around with one pry. And no, I did not pry hard nor was the rose bush a rock solid monster. LOL! I guess I will have to bring out the ancient shovel in the garden shed once again.
We have been through another cold spell here in the hills of Ohio and I am glad I held myself back from putting out the veggie plants and filling the planters with annuals. Although I saw no frost around my house this morning there was frost in some places. I am praying this will be the last of our cold spells for the season because this Gardening Girl needs to plant! LOL!
This flower bed is now in the leaping stage and is starting to look full now with the lilies really taking off. Weigela “Wine & Roses” is blooming so pretty and Dianthus “Brilliant” is so bright it is hard to get a good picture of it.
