June 4, 2008, waiting for the rain to stop, and trying to keep it off newly dug bed, added to the circle bed that was mostly oranges and yellows:
It was also a year ago that I discovered the Cottage Garden Forum on ivillage's GardenWeb. I've mentioned this before, but that is where I met some very nice people, some of whom got me interested in blogging. I got lots of encouragement that my bed would be fuller this year. It is, but I'm still wanting to plant some early spring bloomers that don't need much room later, when the annuals get bigger. The bed originally was going to be for large growing annuals, but I kept finding perennials I wanted to grow, and I'm glad I did, because they fill up some spaces that would be dirt right now if they weren't there.
