What a Day

What a Day!!!!

Yesterday was absoloutely gorgeous, so I managed to hit up Bradford greenhouses and peek at the beautiful perennials, and annuals all ready for planting.. as usual.. I could not stop myself (hey I am building a garden here, a few plants at a time).. I ended up spending 350$ on earth, plants, edging, decorations, & mulch.Shocked. I also extended the garden to complete everything (and to add room for some larger shrubery).. I was looking at those gorgeous pom pom evergreens.. or a dwarf korean lilac bush, all very good candidates for this sunny location. Raked and pulled away all of the burnt dead grass.. I hope some of it comes back where the new flower bed isn't.

On the dog front, Kaycee is back home today after being spayed..I feel so bad for her, I knew we had to do it, but I am sorry that she had to endure this, I just wish it was easier.

We also got out green bins today.. since our garbage limit will be 1 bag.. I will refrain from my thoughts on this just yet, when I have more time I will post what I think of this program.

I will post pics when I have a little more energy.

Garden centres are very dangerous places. A person can never walk away empty handed!

Do you have a composter? That helps with both the garden and the garbage, I find.

Oh, and I can completely identify with the spending on the garden. In fact, it made me feel good to know that I am not alone. ;-)

This is a brand new Subdivision and our back yard and side has failed grade, I would love to put in a composter but I have to wait until everything gets fixed, hence why the current project is the front yard only. Our city composting program bothers me only from a CFIA point of view. Public Service announcement via My Blog to follow
