Green Thumb Sunday
The infamous Entry Garden is slowly filling in. The yarrow were volunteers that were slated for compost at the Master Gardener veggie garden. I slipped them into my basket last May, brought them home, planted them temporarily in another bed and then again here when this bed was finished last June. The lavenders were languishing in the Purple Garden. I moved them to this bed in June 2006 also. They seem to be doing better here. The tiny rosebush is The Fairy. I bought it for less than $5.00 at the local drug store a few years ago. It, too, was in another bed and moved into this one last June. This is one tough little rose. The squirrels gnawed most of the new growth off in the spring but it kept putting out new leaves and managed to stay ahead of them until other spring plants became available to the squirrels.
Gardeners, Plant and Nature lovers can join in every Sunday, visit As the Garden Grows for more information.
