OK, so I feel a bit obsessed with photographing my garden right now. Especially when I am supposed to be painting trim in our new studio that my crafty husband has been working on for months now. Full disclosure: this will be wandering yet visually stimulating entry.
That’s my grandma’s Singer sewing machine that is not only adorable and carries great meaning to me, but sews beautifully. Although I may not be qualified to make that statement since I really only sew curtains, pillowcases, pet beds and other rectangular objects. A note about the floor: as we are finishing our studio on a shoestring, I peeled up the asbestos tile, scraped the hell (six hours worth of scraping hell followed by a stiff martini. ok, two stiff martinis) out of that raunchy black glue and then sealed with an acrylic poly. It was easy, cheap and I love how it refers to the history of the house. I am really happy with the results.
On to the garden! Today I planted Botanical Interests Cherry Belle Radish. They are supposedly ready in 24 days! That means radishes on May 2! I like veggies that are all about business. I also planted Seeds of Change heirloom Tigerella maters in pots.
From top to bottom, left to right:
Euonymus Colorata (Purple Leaf Wintercreeper)–this plant is amazing. It is an evergreen as well as thrives in shade and drought. It does so well in Montana. Although the description states that the blooms are insignificant, I find them to be lovely; rhubarb; Sam bud on the yellow adirondack; arugula; peas; coreopsis (I think).
It is nice to have you back. I missed your posts last week. Where did you find the Purple Leaf Wintercreeper? I am always looking for interesting shade plants.
