I learned some interesting things today. The rose my grandmother grew beside her front step was called a "peace" rose. It is a yellow rose with pink and peach tips. I found it has a history that goes back to before World War II, coming from France before the invasion and being safeguarded in America and other countries, until the war was over.
Here in Central Louisiana, at our new house, we just bought the empty lot next to our house.
Last weekend, we put up a canvas gazebo with mosquito netting.
And I've been haunting the local garden stores.
I want to do some square foot gardening this summer.
Last year, we moved in mid-July, and it was too late to start a garden.
This year, I'm already looking longingly at the seed packets.
Have you ever noticed that if you look, you'll find garden and flower seed packets all over the place?
The weather has been mild and wonderful.
I can't wait to plant tomatos!
