March Week One Update

Hi Lovelies, Brace yourselves! This post has a lot of pictures. Just a quick peek at ¬†nearly everything¬†that's going on right now! Let's all just hope that this warmer weather will keep on coming our way! Not pictured is the progress on the dahlia tubers that I've started for cuttings. The reason? Well, it looks…

An Update on a Sunny Day

Hi Lovelies, Well, today looks like it's going to be one of the last days before the weather turns gross and cold again. It's sunny, it's 60F. For whatever reason, I don't feel like singing songs and wearing shorts yet, though. Anyhow, just wanted to quickly share some captures from the hoophouse and to update…

Buffy Boots Rain Boots

Hi Lovelies, Now before you get excited, let me break down this post. I was recently in contact with the new company Buffy Boots and asked if I'd like to try a pair of their rain boots for review. For the sake of total transparency - YES, I received these boots from the company at…

‘Bordeaux’ Anemone Love Affair

Hi Lovelies, So, it's obviously still early in the season. I'm far from ready to reach my final conclusion about any of the new anemone varieties that I'm trying this year, but after seeing some more 'Bordeaux' open up, I absolutely have to share the pictures with someone! I hope you enjoy! Love to hear…

Frankenstein Flowers (a rant about flowers)

Hi Lovelies, First my apologies that I didn't to complete Blog-tober. Something which required travel came up unexpectedly and believe me, I'm kicking myself more than you know. Though I'm still away, I felt I needed to make this post and am attempting to do so via mobile phone - thus, the lack of photos…

The Last Sunflowers of the Season

Hi Lovelies, I was certainly cutting it close on today's post. Currently, I'm cleaning up a giant mess of a flooded basement. Since I've got a lot of mopping to do, I thought I would show you some of the last sunflowers that were picked. I planted the seeds rather late, around August 10th -…

Last Year’s Tulips

Hi Lovelies, By now you've probably figured out that it's very rare that I do anything without procrastinating for as long as possible first. That means I haven't even ordered or bought my tulip bulbs. Technically, I could be planting them right now, but it's not exactly a secret that I'm waiting on them to…

Growing ‘Ali Oop’ Dahlias

Hi Lovelies, It seems that I've managed to stumble upon another winner! I ordered 'Ali Oop' (like many of my other tubers) on a whim when things were on sale this year. While I'm not sure about the origin of the name on this one, I'll just assume that it has something to do with…

Growing ‘Gay Princess’ Dahlia

Hi Lovelies, Well, it's day four of Blog-tober and we're still going strong - though admittedly, I may or may not be extremely worried about running out of ideas within the next week. Today we'll be taking a look at another dahlia that I grew this season. In an effort to keep these reviews completely…

Growing ‘Honey Dew’ Dahlia

Hi Lovelies, The rain is pouring down out there and it's cold, so that could only mean one thing! It's time for me to jump on the ole' internet machine and write about something. In honor of my goal to write about and create a sort of short "review" for everything that I grow, I…
