It's that perfect time of year, with the weather cooperating with me, to be outside planting. I'm getting near the finishing touches for the season, but felt there was something missing. LouAnn and I went on a road trip to get those last items. We went to Cookeville, to Johnson Nursery (www.johnsongardencenter.net/),
where I had purchased a climbing rose last year. I wanted some
more climbers to go on the south facing wall of the garage. I
haven't been able to find any in Knoxville, so we made the trip
We got there too late in the season to have many to choose from
but I like these red ones. They don't have much scent, but they
are a true red. I hope to get them in the ground tomorrow after
work, but know it's more likely they'll get there on Sunday

Hollyhocks have shot up on the side yard, too, after hanging out low to the ground last year. They're just about ready to bloom.
The vegetable garden continues to change, especially in the areas where things planted by seed never came up. It's been enlarged to have a bigger herb garden, a lavender "grove," and even more tomatoes. I really like tomatoes. I even have first tomato baby photos.
Blogger has been unusually obnoxious this evening, and I feel as if I've wrestled an unwilling beast, so it's time to say goodnight and wish you all happy weaving, gardening and a wonderful mid-spring!
