I replanted my compost pile that was sprouting all kinds of interesting buds into one of my raised beds and it has suddenly found it’s roots, so to speak. Squash blossoms have appeared and some have already moved onto some kind of squash, to be determined later. They could be anything, pumpkins, yellow squash, green squash. The fun is all in the surprise.
On the subject of gardening, I found this AMAZING nursery while on vacation last week, Aspen Hollow in South Lake Tahoe. The women there were very friendly, completely in love with gardening and giving with their gardening tips. Their creations were amazing and fun. They had a real knack for putting fabulous planters together. Of course, if I had a whole nursery at my disposal, I might too.
I was so enamored with the place I went back and shot photos, but my pictures really don’t do them justice. Still, if you’re ever there, go. Check these out:
And the piece de resistance, a huge metal basket, that must weigh a 100 pounds, hanging inside this metal pergola, above a water fountain. Again, you really can’t see the enormity of this beauty, but I tried.
Thank you ladies (and gents) of Aspen Hollow for making such beautiful gardens, d.
