Best Spring Ever


This is our fourth Spring in Tennessee and I think it is the best ever. I have finally gotten the hang of the seasons, and what will grow here. After all these years I have also stepped up and gotten real tomato cages for the first time EVER. These are called the Ultimate Tomato Cages, and I hope they live up to their name. I planted this bed early Sunday, in my pajamas, which is all part of living in the country. Never did get dressed all day. O well.
German Queen, an heirloom, Big Red, a beefsteak, Supersweet 100's, a cherry, and Mr. Stripey, an orange with red stripes variety. And in the same bed I planted peppers: California Wonder, and a yellow and a red bell, and dill.


My new little hosta bed is going great, with an addition of the lily of the valley I ordered online. And one set of iris leaves, which look like they might end up being Siberian Iris, but I'll wait and see. The azaleas near the mailbox are blooming like never before. They were here when we moved in, and so were these pink ones at the top of the driveway. Just full of blooms for the first time.

I am enjoying my Gallardia and Mountain Bluet and hoping they return next year. And this Tiarella, it's second year in the garden is showing off its candles of foamflowers. Thrilling to me.




Dave spent the day painting lumber and himself. The white primer stuck to his skin more than the gray paint, so he is just going to let it wear off. The gray matches the deck of course and will be the wood used for the planterboxes/fencing around the deck.
I was on vacation for most of the day, after morning watering and weeding, and just knit a new sock.


I was so preoccupied with the deck building that I never gave a thought to Easter dinner. I found some stuff to make...hummus and crackers, 5 deviled eggs, and some ham, cheese and pickles cut into cubes and stacked on toothpicks. It was kinda like a picnic lunch, on the deck, waving at motorcycles parading by, a lovely relaxing Easter.

  4. The gardens are just lovely. I enjoy watching the process of beautifing your property. We have had nothing but rain, rain, and more rain in Ohio. It finally warmed up, but the yard is so saturated there is no way to do any yard work including cutting my very tall grass. Keep showing those pictures! I especially like seeing the fish.

  5. 4 years..what???? Amazing. The changes you've made to the garden and house are so great. Wish there was a rent-a-Dave nearby.
    Will we call him Dave the Builder now?

  6. Those look like the same tomato cages my hubby bought last year and they work great. I thought they were ugly as h... since our garden is basically in our front yard, but they worked.

  7. So, I do not actually consider this may have success.
