Garden in a Pot
I love the combination of yellow and red in the spring.
I said that I wasn't going to do it, but I bought a couple of tomato plants on the way home from the pool. We stopped at Merlin's Greenhouse, so that I could buy them and see spring in their beautiful greenhouse. Rows and rows of the biggest geraniums that I have ever seen. All different colors. It made me almost sorry that I didn't buy any this year. He has them arranged as you come up the walk to the building too....what a glorious entrance they make. Of course I had to buy a couple of other things too.
We had the lawn man put on dandelion killer yesterday. Today they are drooping. I have a few in my flower beds and back in the woods....I'll be busy next week digging them out.
We just had dinner and now it's time to just rest. Going to the pool really relaxes me. Sometimes too much. It was fun today, as two little boys were getting lessons. One....so afraid and the other a fish.
Coming home through Oregon, was so pretty. Many trees were blooming and flowers along fence lines and at front doors were so beautiful. Bright colored birds were everywhere. Soon, the spring bulb show will be all over, and we'll be on to something else. I hope everyone can enjoy it while it's here. We've waited so long, it seems, this year.
