Beautiful day here...It was really cold last night though. I have plans to go to some garden centers and pick out flowers for Mary's Garden and the Grotto at Church. There will be two of us shopping...it's always fun to pick each other's brains about what would do well...what goes together...and what would be the best choices. We do have a budget, but we can spend more if we need to. It's fun, picking things out and trying new plants.Some years...things do well, and some years we have failures. Both of the gardens are in full sun, so that is a factor to consider. This is the 2nd year of planting at the Grotto...things were planted little by little there last year. Perennials were planted in several spots and we filled in with annuals. We need to get a few more perennials today and then manyannuals. Petunias didn't do well in one garden, but they did in the other. We will probably wait for a few days to plant, because of the cold nights. This is the craziest year...who knows what summer will be?
My little robin's nest on the porch wreath is empty. The babies just hatched and yesterday, when I checked...they were gone. I don't know what happened, but there is no trace of baby birds in the nest or on the porch below. I was telling Audra about it last night...she said, "Maybe the snake got them." Well, I don't think so...a snake couldn't manage climbing the side of the house to get to the wreath. It's a mystery.
I'll post tomorrow about our flower shopping...Have a nice day.
