Busy Weekend Ahead

Standard

The weather is finally somewhat stable and I actually have some free time this weekend, soooo the planting is ON.  It’s time to get the backyard in summertime mode.  When you live in Colorado the “rule of thumb” is that you don’t plant flowers before Mother’s Day.  And it’s true – there is always one more freeze before Mother’s Day.  I need to run back to Lowe’s today and get one more “spike” plant and maybe a couple of bushes.  I have two dead bushes to replace and I haven’t decided if I should replace them with flower bushes or evergreens. Leaning towards the evergreens because the dead bushes have containers on either side that I’ll plant with my geraniums. I love geraniums, low maintenance and continuous blooms.  I am not a gardening kinda person but EVEN I can keep geraniums alive – a little miracle grow once a week and I actually look like I know what I’m doing – LOL.  Looking forward to some fire-pit nights and some backyard movies.  Bring on the “iced coffee”!!!flowers
