A day like today on the Gulf Coast makes one just mad to be setting at a desk. The skies are the bluest blue, not a single cloud, and a balmy 62 degrees. Nature is calling. I feel the need to dig in the dirt. Instead I must work. Afterall so many people who want to work cannot find a job. OK - so planning what I am going to do - will have to do for today.
My first spot for my first garden in my yard - as stated on another posting will be around a pecan tree. I expect this area to be about a 10 x 10 garden. I want to have plenty of colors. Looking at Springhill Nursery spring catalog these are my picks: phlox - pink, hollyhocks - pink and white, vinca, begonia, blue aster and daisy. I can't wait to see my garden take shape and how pretty. I'll take pictures when I get me a good camera.
