Prepared and planted this bed out front before leaving yesterday. Dahlia's are all in the center and Lobelia is planted around the outside. I have not planted Dahlia's since I moved from the South. I hope to be posting more about this gardening adventure and cottage awakening.
I transplanted the geraniums from my garden in the valley. Purchased the marigolds up north. I was able to dig this bed up myself and turn the dirt with new nutrients. The soil at our house in the valley usually requires the muscle of Randy. I found two former labels embedded deep in the soil. One was for strawberries and one for red hot ??? Maybe I will try some strawberries.
Our grandson came down to the valley with us. We are loading again and will return to Pinetop on Friday. Chandler has his last baseball game of the season Friday afternoon. We need to make sure we have him there in time to root, root, root, for the home team. There are certainly many roots that bring me happiness these days.
