I've been missing you

apparently we caught a virus (dam Facebook!) i can read your posts - but i cannot post anything. I am currently on my daughter's laptop and she doesn't like it.

Here's what's been going on here at Pinewood Cottage Gardens.
Cleaned and moved some things around in the front sunny border. I like the knockout roses ...

we found some peonies and we're trying them for the first time. We have been working on turning the Circle Yard into a white garden - i put in some impatients. Winter was a little tough here in SC this year - we had freezing temperatures too many days. Daddy's little basket barrier sculpture didn't fair so good.

We have ordered some white peonies and some lavender from Wayside Gardens ( really just to support the local business ) they are only about 15 miles from us here. We went there - the parking lot is full of employees and they are landscaping the flower beds - i think they're going to be okay.

The azaleas are blooming... It did rain last week and the pollen took it hard - but it's back - and it's mad! The old black chairs that sit on the porch all the time are nasty as is the rest of the porch. We got some asparagus ferns and hanging baskets on the porch. Despite all of it - Life is good!

  1. I really love the porch. I see one of same design on covers of a book called Porches. Great place to be I bet.
