First Day in the Garden and Ten New Friends.....
Since tomorrow is forcast with Winter Storm Watches and 2-3 inches of SNOW, I thought I would get in one small day of Spring Gardening. Hmmph. This year, I asked WoodsmanHans to make the garden a little bigger, which he did. I told Boss about it and he asked what I would grow with more room. "More." I told him, thinking, now it will go up to eleven.
The first thing you have to do after ordering your seeds from Tomato Bobs, is to make little Flags for your plants. If you don't, if you think you will remember, you will regret it, and play a sad game called "Garden Surprise". Remember, little seedlings look very alike. Here's NBB (Non-Birding Bill, the Birdchicks Husband) patiently making the little Flags, while I put a seed and little Flag in each little Peat Pot.
Place them by a window, and not yet in your little Greenhouse you have bought special for this year, if it is going to SNOW some more, despite it being APRIL (nearly) Put them by your Lemon and Lime tress, which also live indoors most of the year if you live in the Land of Ice Age, for an exotic effect.
Place the rest of your tray on top of the bookcase after you clean it off. (This will take some time.)
Since that is pretty much all I can do garden-wise for the moment, I thought I might stop and get some Fishes for the Coffee Table Fish Tank. It's been empty since Fish died (The last of the original five) and tho it tends to get dirty with Actual Fish, well, could be hours of fun. Here is Venus playing a game I like to call "This can only end badly"
No need to worry, Little Fishies. Only two of the five Leopards living here have access. Nothing to worry about, swim, be happy! (Note: No, they can't get them. I am funny. Not evil.)
So ends a quiet evening, after the first day of gardening, here at the Spooky House. We have ten new Friends for Venus and Mim, who seem, as far as I can tell, to be swimming happily in their new home. Wait. The fish are swimming happily. Not Venus and Mim.
Love, Little Flags and Fishies,
