Yup, if I have to take a season off, summer is the one to give up. All I do is water and wait all the way through July and August.  Mad

Thanks for the well-wishes on the real estate deals. We aren't set to close until the middle of June and all kinds of stuff could go wrong between now and then.  affraid 

The pool is heavenly -- still a little cold, however.  Shocked

I'll bet you could find a spot for one of those small hot tubs. I've seen some really neat ones that could nestle in with the plants and be really refreshing on a hot day.  Cool

Yesterday we got a call from our grandson-in-law. He wanted to get rid of a bunch of large landscape rocks and a huge load of topsoil and dead grass from their front yard. He was going to pay to dump it. WHAT?!  Shocked Anyway, we had him bring it to the new place and dump it in front, where I'm going to mound it into a gentle curve and turn it into a pollinator garden. He was afraid he was imposing on us. I'm looking at about $800 worth of beautiful dirt WITH NO ROCKS!  🐢I've already named the finished garden "Allan's Knoll." I can't wait to get it finished, but I'm already exhausted from the other projects involved in this deal, so I may still be looking at that pile of dirt in October.  Sad

Wow.. Did you smack your son in law over the head.. likes Gibbs did to Tony in N.C.I.S?   

For curiosity sake.. how much was he looking at paying the person to haul it away and "dispose" of it?

I cant wait to see how your creativity flows with Allan's Knoll. Smile

He's in the automotive biz, and has friends with heavy equipment. He had an "excavator" truck with a hydraulic dump thingy. I think he also borrowed a tractor to dig it up with. The only cost would have been about $30 to dump it. For me, it's pure gold.  I love you  He had already brought over a regular pickup load and dumped that at the old house, so I have plenty of materials if I ever get a chance to garden again.

The new house has a partial walk-out basement that the previous owners forgot to clean out. Most of it went into the dumpster, but at the very back, we found A COMPLETE GROW LIGHT SETUP! YEE HAH! I AM ALL SET FOR WINTER GROWING!  happy turtle

That is a beauty of a find!   Looks like you just may be able to start some seeds this season Smile   

maybe just some cuttings from stuff in the yards that you or the butterfly's like.

Well, I was wrong about the electricity. Hubby had an extension cord down there for lights, but the breaker box is in there, so it shouldn't be hard to get some outlets installed. That's several months down the road, so it's not on my 10-mile-long to-do list for today.  affraid

Carrot Blossom

Here's what you get when you let your carrots grow all winter and spring. These babies are almost 3' tall and beautiful, but no longer fit to eat.

Turan, good point if they can cross-pollinate.

They readily cross pollinate and the cross is bitter.

Hen & Chicks

Post  countrynaturals Yesterday at 1:03 pm

I guess this really is "the year of the flower" for me. I've never seen hen & chicks bloom before, but I have 2 of them getting ready to blossom. (The other one isn't in the pic.)
