A few layers of newspaper to slow the weed growth and then a generous layer of mushroom compost, not pictured. While we rested from this we went to the porch for gatorade and to paint
I had some Creeping Jenny and a couple of grasses growing in an old plastic wheelbarrow. The weight of the plants and soil cracked the wheelbarrow open. We found a large container for the Jenny, potted it up and set the container in the middle of the bottomless chair. Now painted burgandy.
She is still in shock but will soon settle in comfortably and grow into a long flowing skirt covering the entire container, bottom of the chair and attach herself to the soil.
Still deciding exactly what to do in this area. Maybe my first Fairy Garden. We live on a corner so we have streets on three sides of us. It is our goal to connect this garden with the one just above it and continue around the entire perimeter of the front yard.
This chair also got a new color.
Oh the things I need and want to do in the garden this year have been slow go. The heat and humidity are stifling. Recovery from the elbow surgery has been slower than I want and the other elbow hurts constantly. Patience my dear, patience.
Today I am Thankful that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
