Just White

…..nothing important today. Just playing with the camera lenses.

Snow Covered

 
Dust of Snow
Robert Frost
The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From hemlock tree
 Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part

Of a day I rued.

    Okay, I’ve had enough already! Bring back the warm!

Perennial Project

 I have a galvanized washtub by my front steps 
that I have been planting with annual flowers for nearly eight years.
While I like the instant color of the annuals, 
it’s the textures and colors of the perennials that I really love!
So this year I’m doing something a little different.

I
 A white & fuzzy theme garden.
 I gathered some of my favorite “white and fuzzy” plants
from my favorite garden center (supplied by my favorite green house)!

Next I get my tub ready…
I’m reusing the soil~ emptying out a few shovel fulls of old
and replacing with composted manure, with about a cup of dry, organic fertilizer~ 
then mixed well with a few turns of the shovel.

I then arranged the plants with tall in the back and short in front.
It looks a little open and sparse right now, but hopefully it will be full 
and overflowing the sides by end of summer!
