Mushroom Tents

Standard

Busy last two weeks, but after this weekend should be ready to start cleaning up and putting away things in preparation for winter. I have been shopping ’cause this is the time garden stuff goes on sale-pictures later.

Today are pictures of my mushroom tents that inspired a poem-and an interloper on my parsley.

My Tussie Mussie Bed

Standard

I am putting up 2 before & after pictures of the Tussie Mussie Bed (If you don’t know what it is, Google it), I am responsible for in the Herb Garden of Huntsville Botanical Garden. As you can see, it was rough and barely had anything in it but a nice rose bush in middle and a rather large rosemary bush. Lots of planting and mulch, it began to bloom with flowers and herbs.

I am now deadheading and pulling out spent plant to prepare for winter.

Yes, gardening can be work, but like going to the gym-if you stick to it you will get results.
