Earth Day 2015

On this earth day I celebrated by opening a package that arrived with seeds...

Lots of seeds.  Now that we are in PA Irish Gardens has to start fresh with everything.  I currently have no greenhouse or even a yard to call my own.  Does that mean I am not going to have a garden?  Goodness no...I asked the Land lady if I could have one.  So a few days ago with the approval from both the land lady and my hubby I went online to my favorite stores and went gardening shopping.  The first to arrive was these beauties from Dollar Seed.  I love those guys. 

I mean check this out. 

Thats $1.00 worth of Dill weed or seed.  Got to love it.  Next that is scheduled to arrive are more seeds but from Burpee Granted it is just more lettuce seed but it's the seed tape......I love that stuff. 

Did I order plants?  Well of course I did and they will come when it's time.  But this Earth Day I sat and thought about what I want to truly plant and where.  See I have a Greenhouse coming....I can't wait....so what do I want to plant in there and what is going to go outside?  I have learned from past experience that peppers and tomatoes while they grow tall in a green house don't produce a whole lot of peppers and tomatoes so they have to go outside somewhere.  But those dill seeds pictured above?  Yea they will go in side there.....I just have to get the pots and soil now. 

So what did you do this Earth Day?

May flowers

April showers bring May flowers and here it's no different.  I love my flowers and will miss them when we move.  But while I still have them lets take a walk and see them shall we?

 Although not planted or planned dandelions are quite the photographic and quite pretty in their own way.
 Next we start the daffodils....these are the bell of the garden.....the light colored ones are my favorite.
 Next come the Lily of the Valley...so small and delicate they are just starting to open up.
 Ahhh my delicate Lilac's are opening up and smelling wonderful....
 Then along comes the odd ball daffodil.....the dark one....it's amazingly beautiful.
 Another plant that is welcome but not planted are these viola's  I love the pretty yellow ones more than the purple ones that are abundant.
 Also blooming is the forsythia.....many people hate this bush cause of the pollen.  But I like it's pretty yellow flowers.
 Continuing along our journey is our Barberry bush and it's very tiny yellow red flowers.  They are hard to find along all the thorns and red-green leaves.
My pride and joy is the pink dogwood.  Such pretty flowers that come out long before any leaves.  So pretty and delicate looking.

So I hope you enjoyed today's walk through the front yard's show of flowers.  Until next time...have a wonderful weekend.
