Lately all I’ve been doing is working in the garden and shipping Mother’s Day orders. Speaking of which, thank you for the tremendous support! There are going to be lots of happy (or possibly horrified) mothers out there when they receive their Wit & Whistle cards next weekend!
Taking breaks from filling orders to dig in the dirt is keeping me sane. I’ve been working on my shade garden, and I thought I’d share the plants I’ve added (just in case any of you fellow shade dwellers are stumped when it comes to gardening). Now that I’ve come to terms with the fact that I have a full shade yard, it’s really not so bad. There’s actually a nice variety of shade plants available.
I just now realized that Solomon’s Seal probably wasn’t named after Solomon’s pet seal…
This isn’t really garden related, but I have trouble getting grass to grow in our shady yard. Last fall I sprinkled a bag of white clover seed around the yard, and now we have a fluffy carpet of clover leaves coming up! I like the look of the round soft leaves much better than grass.
