It’s time to finish all the spring planting!
This weekend I’m going to be busy in the garden, hoeing, planting, weeding, and generally finishing up anything that should be done in the spring.
The garden blitz begins at dawn.
This year, I promised myself that there would be no half flats of flowers not planted, left to languish on the patio for the summer. This year, I’m planting every single plant I bought.
And I’m even going to plant the old fashioned rose that I started from cuttings from my aunt’s garden, that has been living in a four inch pot on the patio for almost two years.
It’s time, it’s Memorial Day weekend. The unofficial beginning of summer. The big weekend in Indianapolis.
My goal is to garden all out and get everything done so that on Sunday I can be ready to sit, relax, and reflect on my spring at May Dream Gardens by the time Jim Nabors steps up to the microphone to Sing ‘Back Home Again in Indiana’ at the Indianapolis 500 race. And then I’l listen to the version Annie in Austin wrote for May Dreams Gardens.
I’ll also take care of that bunny’s nest in my strawberry patch. I checked it last night and it appears that the Mama may have moved the baby bunnies to another location as the nest is empty, except for two babies that did not appear to survive. I’ll give them a nice burial, unless some other critter has come along and taken care of them for me.
That’s life in the garden, it sometimes doesn’t turn out the way we would like it to.
And just between us, when I first found the nest with what I thought were countless baby rabbits in it, I could have easily taken care of the matter right then, if you know what I mean, but I didn’t have the heart to do it. DON’T tell anyone what a ‘softie’ I am, or the rabbits will come from miles around to live here. And I don’t need that!
What I need is for the weathermen to come through on their promises of sunny skies and temperatures in the low 70’s this weekend. Then I can finish my spring planting!
