This is one corner of our porch now. This is Maple Corner. My husband wants to learn how to graft Japanese Maples. He bought root stock that won't be here until November. In the meantime he is gathering different varieties to graft them to. We have this beautiful area full of these different kinds of Maples. The wind and the heat is hard on them here in the summer. They need to be protected so that is why he has them here.
I like Zinnias almost as much as sunflowers. Last week my husband went outside while I was doing dinner dishes and planted 72 plants. They are all coming up. I am so excited. to have that many to plant. I still have lots and lots of seeds left.
I just love seed packets. I like looking at them and looking at the pictures. I am so glad these still have lots of seeds in them.
These are a black eyed Susan vine that my daughter planted for her flower garden. It has been so cool and wet they are growing in the shed under lights last week they started blooming. I have never seen this kind of flower before every day they just grow prettier and prettier.
This is part of the work bench where the lights are now with some of the seeds. I am starting to think maybe it is time for a green house. We can't do any wood working projects until we get these plants outside. We have all of our herbs coming up now.
Do you remember last fall when my husband and I went down to a very old park here in town and we picked up acorns from the old, old Cork Oak Trees? We planted them in a barrel and these are what have come up this spring.
Just some things we have been doing around here, well there I go again, not me, I just take pictures and follow my husband around. He does all of the work.
Thanks for stopping by today,
