Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Earth Day


Crocus
April 14, 2008

How did you spend Earth Day? I found it difficult to say I'm going to give up using this or not going to do that for the day. The reason being is we try to celebrate Earth Day every day so some things folks get excited about doing for Earth Day have been a norm for us every day for years. I spent a good portion of the day cleaning out the side yard gardens, most of it manually. That meant moving a lot of rocks then raking to level the ground. The previous owner obviously loved rocks so we have an abundance but they simply do not work well here. I will keep a couple for accents then the rest will be moving on. Oh and this is the second day in a row that the furnace has been turned off and since I was outdoors most of the day energy use indoors dropped. The day was beautiful with warm sun kisses teasing the skin. It was easy to keep going in the gardens :)

Happy Gardening!

  1. I love the earth and I love to garden and have been busy spring cleaning my flower beds too! I used to have a neighbor with whom I could get "down and dirty" with!! We exchanged plants, worked in the gardens/yards together and shared a love for the out doors. She had been gone now, for several years, but there isn't a day that goes by when I'm working in the yard and garden that I don't think about her!
