Twitch Of A Nose

Last fall I start to dig up a new flower bed. Which I'll call “Good Will”. I have a few bulbs actual planted in there, early spring blooms.
My thought is to put in some flower bushes and shorter flower, under 10 inches.
This bed is under the power line and it will be about 3 feet across and 20 feet long.

My friend Quenella gave me some climbing nasturtium seeds. Planted them in the southwest corner of vegetable garden.
All flower has some type of folk lore meaning and nasturtium means VICTORY BATTLE OR CONQUEST Peggy at end of the road. Gave me some dark purple iris. Add them to my “hodge podge” and “Royal Sunshine” flower bed.

Did some weeding in the hodge podge flower bed and dug up some STAR OF BETHLAHAM 
 bulbs and plan to give them away.
Will need to take more star of bethhelham out and put them in the good will flower bed.
Murphy and I did some trimming and staking up flowers. Maybe now some light can get in there.

This yellow spike flower I keep forgetting what it called. Every so often I have to chop it back or it would take over the entire flowerbed.

My Aunt Eve gave me that yellow lupine when she still was in her other home. Across the way.

It sure takes a while to build up flower bed. Sure doesn't happen with blink. It take time and money. It seem like I'm always short on something.

  5. Great job with your planting. The flowers are very pretty. I really ought to try doing this too. I bet it is very rewarding to see the flowers bloom knowing you planted them.

  9. Beautiful flowers. I went for vegetables this year but they got too dry and most have already died. I'll have to put in some seeds soon and hope for the best.
