Growing Calla Lilies

Hi Lovelies, So here we are on day 22, and I'm still behind in the vast majority of things that I need to get finished. I've still got to transplant over half of the anemones and ranunculus, I still have a bag of tulips to go into the ground, I still have hundreds of daffodils…

Planting Lots of Tulips, because why not?

Hi Lovelies, Day 20 has come a little bit early to the blog, for the main reason that I probably won't have internet access later tonight when I usually do my 2am writing - I know, I know. Anyway, one of the major tasks that I was able to accomplish today was planting out the…

The Beginning of Spring Flowers – Daffodils, Dutch Iris, Tulips and Anemones

The first table vase of the season. At last, I'm finally sitting down to write a legitimate first post on the new blog! ┬áThe weather has been so nice lately and I have been in a literal mad-dash to start the seeds that need to be started. I'm definitely a little behind in the game,…
