Today's Projects

 I just thought I'd check in to say hi.
Today was really a lovely day.  
Sunny and warm, but not too warm.
Perfect for gardening and I still have
plenty that needs tending to.
Here were today's projects....
Planted some pots and the window boxes 
on the shed.  They look pretty wimpy right
now so I hope to show you them in a few weeks.
Got the fountain working and filled
for our fine feathered friends
Yep....still need to weed.
Taking it one day at a time :)
Planted a bed next to the deck with 
Frilly Russian Sage and Impatiens.   
These should fill in nicely and the 
sage will come back every year....I hope anyway :)
 Installed a new iron trellis for the 
Clematis Vine.  Should be very 
pretty once it starts blooming.

I also did some finishing work, printed charts,
 worked on the instructions for a new chart
 and even did a little chatting on the phone
with a few friends.  Not a bad day!
Hope your day was full and filled with 
things you love too.
Smiles, ~Nan

Your garden is looking lovely, restful and inviting--love your water fountain. Weeds? I have plenty of those--they are always waiting and calling to me

I love your America banner in your heading. Did you make it? So appropriate for this time of year. Mary A

Your gardens are looking great, Nan.
Every garden needs a bird bath or, as in your case, a fountain !

Can I ask you a question regarding your you cut it down every year or just leave it alone at the end of the season?

Just to answer a few questions. To Mary A. The AMERICA Banner was made by Ivonne of The Crackling Crows. She has a wonderful array of banners. They are the best. Here is her blog

To Debbi...It is really best to leave clematis alone. You can trim off dead wood but don't cut down. I learned the hard way and it has never been as full and beautiful as it originally was when we moved into this house. Plus they love their roots cool so I plant around them so their feet are in the shade.

Both of you have your blogs set to no reply so I could not email you.
Thanks for visiting! Nan

Oooooh, I love the fountain! I am certain that your garden visitors do as well...there is nothing as delightful as the sight and sound of a water feature.
Happy blooms to you!
Sending hugs...

Lovely gardening Nan, I have the black thumb of death. I kill everything! LOL My favorite would have to be the trellis you installed. Sounds like you had a wonderfully productive day.
