Recently I mentioned about the gerbera daisies I had in pots last year. I originally bought several smaller containers of them and put them in two clay pots and put them on my front porch but the afternoon sun was scorching them so I moved them over to the side of the driveway where they got a bit of shade. They did great and then we would bring them into the garage any time the temps were going to be too cold, then put them back outside on warmer days to get sunshine and get watered. I wasn’t sure they were going to survive as they began looking a bit ragged towards the end of winter. About the time they looked their worst, I saw blooms beginning to pop up. They survived winter! I’m going to bring those downstairs and put them somewhere under the pergola.
I love their happy colors so I bought four smaller pots and these, potted them in nice red pots and will also go somewhere on the pergola too. We’ve ordered some patio furniture but we still have to find some tables.
The ginger lilies have all been potted.
There are 8 pots of them. I’ll be thrilled if at least four of them bloom this year.
Speaking of things growing, there’s a baby tomato!
And check out the potatoes!
Yes, the weeds are growing up between the bags. I had been moving the bags – Vince would cut a strip, then I’d move the bags to the cut strip, then he’d cut where the bags were and I’d move them back but now the bags are too heavy for me to move so . . Vince is going to have to cut the strip, then get off the mower and move the bags, then cut, then move the bags back. No use in killing any more grass than we have to kill.
I love my little garden!
