Gardening Thursday

Hi, I'm JJ and today, I am doing  my first
Bear in mind that the garden is done by Mom.
I can suggest, but I cannot make Mom do the 
required work! However, I will do my best.
I may have to get pointers from the founder of
this group, Jonesie!!

One rainy day, Mom took pictures of a few blooms  .
This daffodil was just starting to open.
It is open now,but I have to send Mom out for a picture!

These tiny flowers were the first ones to bloom.

We have lots of Vinca, and it is a ground cover.
It covers land close to some trees that we do not need 
to have  grass because it is too rocky to mow.
The leaves are shiny and stay green all Winter.

This daffodil is in another part of the garden
and was in full bloom. It is quite pretty.

I hope that as the season  moves along I will be able
to bring more reports and pictures.
Mom wants a simple,easy to care for garden, so she 
wants to put in decorative grasses.
Tillie won't like that as she will not be able to eat them!!
Well,that is all for today. Hope you enjoyed
my short tour.

Mom's bff moved into a house with at least 12 different types of narcissus. Mom enjoys the photos but would hate the weeding. The garden is HUMONGOUS!

Your first garden post, JJ? No one would guess from the excellent tour you gave. The photos are gorgeous, as you yourself are. We haven't grown fancy grasses, but hear that the are pretty easy. Just cut them down once a year. sounds good to us.

My woman only gardens in containers on the deck now - no weeding! She won't be doing many this year due to the house repairs, but has already gotten a couple of tomato plants, greens and some herbs. We look forward to seeing more of your garden.
