It's almost here! Memorial Day! Am I thinking of barbecues, picnics, a day off work? Nope.
Memorial Day means it's safe to plant in The Mitten! Yay.
I'm making my list, drawing my drawings, daydreaming of annuals and perennials. This years additions and the someday when it's all exactly as I imagine it will be.
I planted ornamental grass around our telephone pole but they didn't survive the winter so now I have a decision to make. I love ornamental grass and may just go ahead and try another hardier kind. OR, I am thinking very seriously about this idea...
That got me thinking, I believe I shall go with the all American idea and plant petunias in red white and blue along the front edge of my berm.
Then of course, there is the traditional Boston ferns that hang around my back porch every year. I'm sticking with tradition on that one, they not only look lush and green but they provide a little shade and make the porch nice and cool in the mornings and evenings.
