Gardens and Gardening Stuff

Postby Nrthwnd » Thu Feb 25, 2016 6:16 pm

I looked it up, but nothing "garden-ish" that I could find.

I love gardens in all their forms, and sometimes how they are put together, etc.

We have more of an English garden-style front yard, and an all ferns
mini-park in the back. I have grown up with ferns literally in my back
yard when I was young. Add to that, the evergreens that forested my
younger years, and I will never tire of it, the look, the smell, the colour.

I just took these photos today, since we've been having such awesome
unheard of weather around here - mucho sun and blue skies - because
our crocus patch has literally doubled since last year and is already blooming!

A month or two earlier than it usually does!

Along with the crocus, I have created "nests" with what's called wattle = fallen branches woven together.

The crocus have multiplied! Eep.

Even we were impressed!

Not exactly a "garden" but our deck has a couple of planters with herbs that David has chosen, to use with
his various recipes. These shots are all of the chives, which really grow tall, with a lovely 'flower' that
eventually blossoms, on top.

Love chives...used to eat them right out of the garden as a kid!

I will post some photos of my flowers and (small) garden once I get stuff in the ground, Bill. Still a good 3-4 weeks away for that though due to possibility of frost until almost Memorial Day.

Although I do have strawberry plants poking up in the garden already - just got it all cleaned out (leaves, weeds, etc) the other day.

Here ya go, Bill....it always has to be around Memorial Day before we can plant anything here in Western NY, but here is my little garden and one of my flower beds for 2016.

Unlike past years when I was stepping over (and on) stuff to weed, I made a standing spot (gray area) this year. On the left is my ever-growing strawberry patch and in the darker areas are (from left), basil, cilantro, green pepper, more basil (in pot) and Boston pickling cucumbers.

Outer pots are a mix of habanero, green, jalapeno peppers with a grape tomato plant in the blue planter (need more tables to elevate). I am going down to buy another tomato plant tomorrow so I can hopefully get enough to make a few jars of pasta sauce this year! ;-)

This is out front. I did the flowers and mulch - Michael added the holiday flags & pinwheels for Memorial Day.

Bacchus approves of our hanging baskets in front of the house (although he barked incessantly at me while taking this picture!).

Everything at your home looks great, Phil! I especially like those hanging baskets, as we've tried before
with one after another, and we never seem to get it right with those. We kill one right after the other, LOL.

We also tried food gardening a few decades back and that proved "fruit"-less for us, ha ha. The only thing
we got out of one entire back yard planting....was a tomato. <sighs> So we never tried that, again.

Have a nice Memorial Day, by the way. :smile:

Can't see them, until....

...There they are! (on the right) They're supposed to be "owls," but I liken them to oversize earplugs, LOL.

Edit: Bill, those owls are awesome! And what are the flowers? They almost look like a rhododendron?
