#421 More plants

The other day you saw a posting of our gardens and the things we had done to it. Today it was was warm enough to plant the rest of the plants. It was a great project, but tiring. The temperature was in the 70's and it was easy to work up a sweat.

I hope all is well with you, and if you can get outside and work in the garden, do it. If that is not possible, take time to visit a garden near you. Spend time enjoying the plants and flowers.

I want to plant another rose bush in the back - preferably a climbing rose, maybe a Lady Banks...

pk, we have planted Knockout roses behind the cat mint. They are beautiful.

Good luck with your decision.

I look forward to the photos of whatever you plant.

It is so cathartic to work in the soil, on the land, in the earth.
You are doing a beautiful job there..nice to see the organisation of it all.

I love gardening. It is Autumn but I have pruned the Mulberry tree ( the pup from my dad's tree), put in four more hibiscus ( pups' from HWMBO's dad's trees) and some lillipillies given to us by our loving daughter.

They should grow into a screen for us around our back western yard.
Come spring everything should go crazy, we hope.

Our Pawpaw gave out so we replaced it with a new one..and am trying a passionfruit.

Thanks for the chance to let you know about the garden by sharing yours.

I love what you have done... you have a beautiful yard! I noticed a bunny peaking over some bushes. sweet ~

You have made me want to get out into my yard... this weekend maybe. It is getting warm here too.

I am thinking about joining the garden club. I don't know if time will allow me to though. It is something I have found a new interest in. I really enjoyed your post! Thank you for sharing.
