March Garden Journal

We worked outside most of today. I planted Iceland Poppies, Old Fashioned Petunias, Hollyhocks, Plumbago, another grape vine, a Juane Desprez rose, and strawberries in a strawberry pot. All this, and I haven’t bought seeds yet. Bacon made trellis pieces that I designed, but I don’t have pictures of any of these things. I am posting photos of what is currently in bloom in my back yard. 

 

The pink Jasmine growing on the trellis smells wonderful. The tree behind it is a Mountain Laurel. Native to the Texas Hill Country, the blue blooms smell like grape Kool-Aid.

The delicate flower on the Old Blush rose starts out deep pink and fades to the palest hue. The arbor was covered with them on Valentine's Day.

Paperwhites came with the house. They bloom every year without me doing a thing to them.

I'm giving away lettuce to neighbors. We can't eat it all.
