Garden Update

It is time again for an update on my garden for The Homeschool Village's Garden Challenge. If you remember from my last post I had started a ton of plants for my garden. Well plans have changed and since we are moving and I do not know how long I am going to be at this house and I don't know if I will have any time once my hubby moves in a week and a half, I have given all the plants to my mom. All that is left is this planter of jalepanos (I figured that I could probably take care of them and then bring them with me to the new house if need be).

I am planning on getting all of her new plants in the ground within the week. But my front garden is the nicest it has ever looked (probably since I am moving- I finally got all the bulbs in that I have wanted to plant for the last few year, and now I have to leave them! These are my brand new planters I bought to spruce up the house yesterday (I hope that these don't convey with the house because I really like them)

Here is part of the front garden, I have tulips, daylillies, columbines, a bleeding heart and some annuals that I planted a couple weeks ago.

This is my favorite plant, I will be sad to leave it. I thought I killed it last year during the drought we had, but it came back up this year. I am hoping I can get another bleeding heart for my new house next year.

I have not done much in the way of garden activities since the last post. I did a lot of the activities with my two older ones and we have read lots of books about bugs and went to the zoo two weeks ago (our zoo plants tens of thousands of new tulip bulbs every year for zoo blooms). We have taken the kids to the garden section of the local home improvement store (does that count?) To visit The Homeschool Village's Garden Challenge click here. You will see other garden updates as well as activities to do with your kids!

Isn't that just how it happens sometimes. You get everything just how you like it and then you have to leave. It is good that you are able to share your plants w/your mother. Since you don't have ground, you may consider growing a few herbs in a pot. I saw your mention of peppers. We are going to try some jalapeno and other peppers this year.

Sorry you are leaving your garden behind! I'm sure you'll be able to create a new fab one where you are moving. Bleeding hearts are one of my favorite plants also!

We've moved so many times that I never bothered to plant flowers. We just moved into a house that we own (finally) and I can't wait to get some flowers planted outside. Love your front garden! Beautiful.

I gave you an award. Stop by and pick it up when you can.
