Well lots has been going on since I last checked in with you so I wanted to catch you up on the latest.
I had shoulder surgery in January and that really slowed me down.
So Duane and I made the tough decision to close down the nursery. The ironic part of this is that the online nursery worked really well last year, actually made a little money for the first time in years!
We put all our profits into a couple of winter projects that have been on my wish list for many years!
#1 Duane built me an ‘Ornamental’ Greenhouse! (A little more to finish, but so close to done!)
Its hard to tear myself out of here on the chilly but sunny days! (Still needs shelves and hanging brackets)
#2 The backyard ‘Courtyard’
I can’t wait for the plants to start showing up!
#3 My vase hutch!
This makes me smile!
As you can see we have been busy and there is still more to do… It’s endless!
BUT… I won’t give up the FLOWER STAND!
So we will be opening the Farm Flower Stand May 1st, 2021! How perfect is that? May Day!
From 10am to 2pm!
THE FLOWERS SHOULD BE IN ALL THEIR GLORY!
And STAY TUNED FOR A FEW LAST POP-UP CLOSE OUT SALES!
It’s mid November and the reality of the end of the garden season is settling in. But today I’m looking forward to a chilly but sunny day in the garden. I will be planting the last of my fall bulbs and peony roots. I’m excited about some of the peonies I’ll be planting today. James Mann, a nice clear pink with beautiful dark red flecks, Grace Batson, a cool dusty pink, a vintage theme comes to mind, Brands Magnificent, dark rose with hints of purple, and Inspector Laverne, a clear deep crimson.
The anticipation of seeing these babies bloom next June will have me out checking on them all winter long!
