Its hard to work in the garden when it looks like this outside the window. The ferocious winds whipped the sandy fields surrounding our home all day Saturday. But, I won't complain, considering that a few miles down the road people lost their lives and homes in all directions. All of those affected by the tornadoes in North Carolina and the other states need our thoughts and prayers.
I went outside early Saturday morning before the weather forced me inside. Here are my trusty tools and clogs waiting for me to begin.
This is a cutting of the Don Juan rose my hubby gave me that was left behind at our old home. I've had success with rooting roses using this "Grandma's Mason Jar" method before, so hopefully this one will work too.
The temperatures outside have become dependably high enough now, so I have brought many of my houseplants outside. Here are some aloe plants and a newly rooted "Ghost Plant" from one of my friends.
I repotted these two and then tucked in some annuals so their summer vacation will be more beautiful.
I filled this old rusty enamelware dishpan with pink impatiens.
The lettuce are producing more leaves than we can eat! I need to start sharing with friends!
We moved the seedlings outside. They will be planted in the garden this week.
