SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!

It appears that Spring has finally won the long-fought battle with Winter here in the Midwest.  Temperatures are finally in the mid-70’s with lots of sunshine.  We have received so much rain with very cool temperatures this past month.  Our hearts and prayers go out to those whose homes have been damaged by the floods.  And to the farmers as they wait for saturated fields to become dry enough for the tractors and planters.

The daylilies and lilacs are finally showing signs of life.  It will be another week or so before they are in full bloom.  Because the growing season is so late this year, I decided to take matters into my own hands and plant grass seed in decorative containers.

I found 2 enamelware water buckets and an enamelware basin bowl as we were cleaning out our shed (yes, we are cleaning and organizing!!) and thought they would be perfect for my grass experiment.  I know that wheatgrass is recommended for such projects.  I called my friends at Kelly Seed Company to ask their advice.  They recommended rye grass, which is what I used.

I love them!  You can easily move them to different locations to create many different decorating scenarios.

I can’t wait to begin other outdoor gardening projects!!  Thanks for stopping by and please visit again.

Until next time,

Pat and Kathi
