Spring In The Country
Created for Collage Play With Crowabout on Flickr. Thanks to Nancy Baumiller for some really great images this week!!
Not much going on around here, just working on art and jewelry! Two of my favorite things to do! They say we may get more snow tomorrow....no, no no!!! I have been reading garden magazines and making out wish lists for plants I want. Looking at container combinations for all my pots...I do this every year and have the most wonderful ideas in mind, then I go to the nursery and they don't have the plants I need to do the container I envisioned, so then it turns out not to be the container I thought it was going to be after all. But I always come up with something. One shrub I want this year is a "Quickfire" Hydrangea...Molly, my sister has one, and I remember seeing it blooming its head off in her yard last year. It was just beautiful. She has it planted in a corner against her house. It really stands out against the color of the house. Her yard is absolutely beautiful and I swear one of these days I am going to post some pictures of her yard! I believe that the Quickfire is a Paniculata Hydrangea, which are my favorites. I love the shape of the bloom and the fact that they can take more sun than the other types of Hydrangea's. One of my favorite shrubs I have is the Viburnum "Judii". If you don't have one of these, I think you should go right out and get one! They bloom early in the spring and have the most beautiful scent!! The list goes on and on ....I will save the rest for another time! Enjoy your evening, stay warm and I'll see you all soon!!
