Here’s a place for us to share the seasonal changes in our gardens. Every month,…
Have you been out in your flower garden lately?
I hadn’t, and as you may have noticed, I haven’t posted a “garden walk” in a long while! In fact, it was back in June of 2014 – GARDEN WALKS – that I posted one. Not sure why now that I think about it. I do know; I was working on trying to write a screenplay.
It’s fun to see the changes, the various flowers in bloom, depending on the time of year.
Even though it’s winter, there’s plenty of reasons to take a garden stroll. The azaleas, camellias, Mums and Roses are all still blooming. I even found snapdragons – still in bloom
Now, I take a look out my window and think, “oh my babies are sleeping,” but after my walk today, it wasn’t accurate. Yeah, they’re, hunkering down, but growing. It’s as good a time as any, to add nutrients to the soil and it’s time I do that.
Bundle up and take your phone, there’s more to admire than you’d think

At this time of year, I try to use up any left-over fertilizers I have. It’s a lazy period for me, garden-wise.
Right before the rain – I admit it, I’m the “looney tune” out in my garden, often – still in my robe – scattering fertilizer.
Don’t tell anyone – haha!
But, if you’d rather continue being cozy on your couch, I get it.
These articles speak to broad range granular fertilizers.
I usually mix things up a little with Fish Emulsion and several other things.

It seems safe to say that our plants like variety, just like us.
I miss composting. But, being so close to the water,
we’ve discovered it attracts those pesky critters!
