Awwww summer planting…I love it.
I am not good with what plants or flowers grow good in which areas.
I think I have inherited my mother's black thumb.
I remember when HGTV had garden shows on Saturday morning. I would sit down with my little note book and watch Mark Cullen and take notes.
Then Wayne my little girls and I would go outside and we would get to work on our yard.
I have to say I think I was better at the hard labour than I was with keeping my plants alive ;)
If you remember from last year this post here, I redid my whole front flower bed, by "little ol' me" pulling out the large cedar bush, and replanting.
I planted a few flowers in here this year, but am rethinking my flower bed again.
I planted some Hosta's in here last night, but they are not doing so well, they are so so tiny.
Then I look across the street at my neighbour's Hosta's and they are gigantic.
I think I need a professional gardener, lol.
Oh and look at this little fella.
I am not looking forward to seeing more, but I hear they are on their way.
This is an Army Worm or Tent Caterpillar.
We have had them before and they will clean out a forest of their leaves in no time.
I remember you could actually hear them crunching on the leaves as there were so many of them.
When driving on the highway, it looked like the highway was moving, but it were these guys marching across the highway.
It was gross.
I don't want to leave you with that thought in your head, so I will share the beautiful Lilacs Kristy picked for me.
She knows I love the smell and look of these beautiful blooms, so she picked me some.
My living room smells so nice :)
Debbie and I don't walk on Thursday's or Fridays, so Kristy and I went for a short walk tonight.
Kristy knows I am having fun with this Map my Walk app, so she said we can't retrace our steps.
My phone died (story of my life) so I am not sure how accurate tonights walk was.
But I did enjoy walking with my Kristy :)
Hope you had a Creative Day :)
