Mr. Brown Socks took today off and we are going to sit down and get our seed order off to Gurney's. That's one thing we like to do together ~~ Gardening. He is really into vegetable gardening while I like to add several herbs and flowers. Of course by late April we will be visiting the nurseries choosing our tomato and pepper plants. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It is so cold here in the Midwest that we can only dream of digging in the dirt for a couple more months. I do have plans to start some seedlings in egg cartons to get an earlier start on some things that take a long time.
Cardinal Climber is one of those. They take a really long time to get started. I LOVE how they take over and trail around a trellis! Are you familiar with this beauty? Once it gets going (well after the 4th of July where I live) it grows several inches (it seems) every day. The hummingbirds are attracted to it because of it's red tubular flowers.
This picture was taken from our garden a couple of summers ago, showing my cardinal climber. A wind storm took this whole thing down in late September. The weight caused my trellis to fall apart. I was just sick when the whole thing was destroyed.
I'm glad I at least got a picture of it in all it's glory.
WE HAVE A GUEST
Another plate has been set
My daughter asked if we could watch Boo while she is out of town for the weekend. It's easy to leave a cat alone for a couple of days, but we love having Boo around and Jamie doesn't have to worry about her being lonely this way.
Of course Magnolia isn't absolutely positive she wants to share the limelight.
They are entertained by one another and do fine together but don't snuggle up like I wish they would.
Is it just me, or are beautiful together??
