I made another garden pot today for the Chives I purchased today because there was no way that I was going to pay another $2.99 for a small package of fresh Chives from the grocery store! I bought a plant today at New Garden Nursery for the same $2.99 price and hope to have a never ending supply of Chives this summer. The pot is a good size for it today but I can tell already that I’ll need to move it to a bigger pot in a few more weeks or move it out to the garden so that it can really big. (And the red chairs you see in the fire pit…..don’t be alarmed…we are not getting ready to set them afire or anything like that. We set them in there when we cut the grass and it looks like someone forgot to put them back.) :)
So with my stencils and my outdoor paint I stenciled on another flower pot label to add to the collection. I’ve been moving all the pots to the deck railing for the last few days so that they could sit in the sun and dry out after all the rain we have been getting. You know the kind…sunny skies and the next thing you know it’s pouring rain. It’s been a bit steamy around here lately.
I loved how the Rosemary in the “grow” pot fit in my lantern. I used to keep a candle in it but during the day the sun melts it so now I only bring one out in the evenings when we are sitting out on the deck.
I think my new chive plant needs a haircut. :)
I will probably move the Rosemary that I am growing in the “grow” pot into the garden in the Fall. Rosemary grows huge down here in the sunny South. As big as a shrub. We had to pull one out of the front yard last year because it got way too big. They get pretty little purple flowers on them when they bloom.
And then there is this little furry creature. Bold and Brazen doesn’t even begin to describe this little guy. We have been relatively squirrel free the last few years which always surprised me because we have a huge Oak tree in the back yard and every Fall there are tons of acorns. I guess the secret is finally out. We have about 4 squirrels that look like they have moved into the backyard. A bird feeder doesn’t stand a chance with these guys around. So far we are co-existing nicely but believe me…I’ve got my eye on him and his buddies and they had better behave!! And they don’t bother Oakley in the least, she finds them quite entertaining.
