REDNESDAY



Happy June Rednesday! It's been raining off and on this past week, and yesterday and today it's been quite cool - around 48F/9C. That's not June weather! But, I'll take it over snow and freezing any day!

I finished planting all the in-ground flowers and veggies before the full moon on Monday. Still have a few more perennials to go, but they're not big enough yet, so will wait until after the next new moon in July. I have a few more to put in pots, but I don't adhere to the moon schedule with potted plants.

Speaking of potted plants, I have to pot up a bunch of stuff for the annual plant sale at our church this weekend. The teens have a combo yard sale/plant sale to raise money for their missions trip each year. This year 88 students and staff are going to Grafton, West Virginia to help in the community.

A few more garden reds today! Mister and I poked around an antique store last Saturday. All we came out with were a book (for him) and this seed bag for me. I don't know how old it really is because it has a zip code on it (zip codes began in 1963), but that doesn't stop me from liking it! The claw on the right is my all-time favorite. I use it every time I garden!

This photo has two Columbines in it. I planted them from the same packet of seeds called William Guinness, but this plant on the left turned out to be a rogue. And I like it!

Here is a shot of what the inside of the William Guinness looks like ~

Oh how lovely! I have several delightful daylilies on today's post but, sadly, no reds. HOWEVER, the grandkids and I are creating fun handmade greetings cards for their dad for Father's Day and we DID have some cute reds for their fave pix - no, not the cute teddy that was my favorite. Instead, they love the googly monsters :) Have a blessed week.
