First I will admit openly that I cheated. I didn't start my seeds, I bought a rather large tomato plant at the garden center, Groff's to be specific, they are awesome ($1.99 perennials - can you believe it?!). I was on my morning garden walk today and spotted two tiny tomato babies, I can't believe it! I didn't even notice the plant had flowers. Now I just have my fingers crossed that the warm weather sticks around and my plants grow up nice and healthy.
Every year I decided I will plant one or two new types of bulbs in the fall. Last year I chose allium. I am so in love with this flower. I may have to plant more this year. You can see why I love my new camera - macro rocks:)
The family that lived here before us planted 9 azaleas of all different colors in the front of the house but this bright pink one in the back is my favorite.
I also wanted to share an amazing blog with everyone that reads my posts. As you know, I love Longwood Gardens. As I walk the gardens I'm always wondering about the behind the scenes activities. Well, wonder no longer! This blog was created by the gardeners there to give you a glimpse of how they work their magic! Everything from how they plant 170,000+ bulbs every year to all about the 11 cats that live there. I'm so glad I found it!
