Saturday was an awesome gorgeous day on the Gulf Coast. This is my favorite time of year when new things are happening. To me it is a refreshing time of year. I love getting outdoors and piddling in the gardens when the weather is so nice. Wish I could take my desk out there today.
This is Dees Pecan Company where I have purchased coffee for some lucky person and some other goodies to be thrown in.
This is a good before of what I accomplished this weekend. I worked my hiney off enlarging this garden. You see it didn't start out that way. I intended only to clean it out and put down a few new plants for color. I was shoveling around the outer edges to edge it out and ta-da....
I added another 20 inches to the bed. Doesn't sound like much but the garden is pretty big by my standards anyway.
I've been needing a place for the lantern and I think it fits here nicely for now anyway. Soon there will lots of plants here. But I could not wait on seeds so whats a gardener to do but go buy some plants...
And this is what I bought.
These are such a pretty color. The camera doesn't do it justice. It is a soft lavender and they are full of buds. This is Osteospermum. I'll not remember that name.
I bought 2 shades of the Nemesia. The coral is pretty. And they are full of buds.
And the purple Nemesia.
I'm gonna hold out hope that I have some juicy peaches this year. The tree is not as full of blooms as in years past. I'm telling you this past years summer drought hit hard on the fruit. That's why I didn't have any pecans.
Hope you all have a lovely day.
Today I am thankful for friendly blogging buddies.
