The Japanese/Texas Wildflower Garden

By: GardenGrrl, 4:07 PM GMT on March 29, 2007

It's raining this morning so it has to be the perfect time to re-pot the Bonsais. Got buckets catching rainwater. The clay pots for the bonsais are set in the yard soaking up the rain. My little guys made it through the winter and have leafed out, sure hope I don't kill 'em. I have a Lace Bark Elm, Chinese Elm and Dwarf Mugo Pine that are coming out of their plastic garden center pots and getting real "homes". These are part of the evolutionary plan to bring a bit of order to the happy anarchy of my flower garden. Basically, at one time I tried for orderly English Cottage Garden. The plants re-seeded, sent out runners and basically shifted to wherever they liked. And flourished! So now in different areas where things don't grow well,I'm bringing in Japanese themed yard art and trying for both colorful chaos and order.

Rain!

By: GardenGrrl, 10:59 PM GMT on March 26, 2007

Hi, thanks for the hello's. It's raining and that is exciting! Everyone local here is probably doing the happy dance. Just finished planting all my mail-order perinnials last week and was wishing for rain water instead of my alkaline well water. Have been planting to attract hummingbirds. Agastaches seem to be a real draw for them. I get the little Black Chin Hummers...they kind of remind me of tiny over-caffinated penguins. Just love watching them. Hope the little guys make it back this year.

New Beginnings

By: GardenGrrl, 1:17 PM GMT on March 25, 2007

Spring is my favorite time of year. The world re-invents itself with every little green bud poking up out of the ground or from a tree limb. Most of my neighbors don't garden so I'm sure they think of me as the "crazy" lady who wanders round and round her house looking at plants coming up out of the ground and getting all excited about it. Ahhh Spring! And Hello to Ya'll at WunderGround. I've very much enjoyed reading everyones blogs and seeing the pictures you've posted. They are definite day brighteners. Thank-You. Being spring it's time for new things, so this blog will be one of my new endevors. Greetings from GardenGrrl :)
