Seriously potting

I have come to the conclusion that I have some serious potting issues...LOL   I planted over a hundred seeds this week, including about 10 varieties of tomatoes.. and then made  a make shift greenhouse so they could stay outside and the dogs and squirrels wouldn't dig in them..and they would germinate quickly.....you could say I can get creative when the need arises.


 All of these plants need to go in the ground....

 Here is a sneak peek behind the curtain...

 and this is why I do it all....the end result after many years is a FULL rose bush....

this area was red clay and weeds  about 5 years ago....so proud of my Japanese maple from Ram Gibberson's garden...and the oakleaf hydrangea from my Daddy... and the aspidistra from my Grandmother Lewis garden...I guess you could call this a friendship garden..oh, yes the mint is from Miss Everlyn Collier's garden..and the irises from Nancy..anybody have something they want to contribute?  LOL  and irises from Mamama's..and the rosemary from Inge's.....and daylilies from Mama...all in this one bed..

this gardening passion of mine runs deep..I can't imagine life without doing it...I think it is a big part of my calling in life...plant flowers and beautify the earth... it's all I have ever known..no matter where I have lived, there is some dirt that can be dug and planted...

thank you for visiting my garden this morning....and reading my words..it means a lot to me...
