Sunny Saturday

Morning showers put a quick damper on our neighborhood yard sale, but they passed quickly, and we went on to raise a nice sum for our paint the pavement project. One neighbor potted up some of her perennials for the sale. They sold before I could buy one. Not to worry, as Linda will give me some divisions later.

I got to know a couple more of the neighborhood gardeners. One cleared up a plant mystery for me. (Thanks, Jo!) And I shared some perennials, some of which I had recieved from other neighbors. What comes around goes around.

We ended the sale around 3:00 in the afternoon, and with my wife's tacit approval, I spent the next six hours working in the garden until I couldn't see any more. I know that she'd rather I work at clearing out the basement, but I'll save that chore for a rainy day. Or a humid day. Just not on a day like this one.

Hi - I saw your comment at the Secret Farm blog - and followed the trail to your blog. I garden in a burb of Minneapolis - it's nice to find another Minnesota gardener!! Your blog is great - you have some wonderful plants in your garden. I'm looking forward to seeing more photos as our season progresses. Nice to "meet" you! (Your neighborhood sale sounds like a great idea - and good fundraiser)

Thanks, Kris. I'll add your blog to my list of garden blogs, too. Love your blue hardy geranium. Gotta get some of that. All of mine have pink blossoms.
