Setting up the quilt showApril 24, 2012
Places, everyone!April 25, 2012
Hello all, it’s ME.
Just in case we ever get to dig in the dirt here’s something for the gardeners among you. Got my shoes muddy this morning looking around to see what survived the snow yesterday. The trillium which were gorgeous 2 days ago, are looking pretty sad this morning. And I think the jack-in-the-pulpits are a lost cause, I’m afraid. The later daffodils are iffy. What a strange weather year we’re having. I’ve heard it said that gardeners are eternal optimists, since we don’t usually see the fruits of our labors right away. I have a coffee mug that says “A garden is never finished.” Ain’t that the truth?!
We’ve seen quilt gardens before-love the plantings arranged to look like quilt blocks. I think a feature telling exactly what plants were used to execute the garden is new though. I went to Nancy Zieman’s new website looking for something else (so much to explore-much improved and easy to navigate) and saw “quilt gardens” among the choices. When I went to check them out, I noticed a downloadable master gardener planning link. Bonanza! Granted these gardens are in a different zone than we are, but what great info!
Hoping to see you all at the quilt show. TTFN!
