Around the garden

Do you have a favorite garden area? Mine is this little spot right at the front of the driveway. It's quite small and without exotic or difficult flowers but somehow it really makes me smile and happy.

On Wednesday I wrote about the heavy rain but I may not have mentioned the strong winds that went along with the rain. It flattened my Lavatera, some of the stalks were broken off but with a strong stake and string I should get it upright again.

And I bought a floating cover today and some seeds. I won a $25.00 gift certificate to a local nursery at my last garden club meeting. Those little root maggots, cabbage loppers and the like will not get the best of me..I hope.

The sun is shining today and will hopefully shine all weekend so I can spend my time in the garden. I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world.

Happy Friday everyone.

Looks very nice! I'll have to drop by and see the whole garden sometime.
