@ the ben and jerry's factory in Waterbury, VT I don't think they know if they want you to come or go...or maybe this is like a test for a new ice cream flavor..."do nut know what your doing" maybe it will have choc./van/coffee/strawberry/banana ice cream with every nut you can imagine and a chocolate swirl...oh heck what do I know I just went thru the door.

It has been the best peony year ever! I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that we are moving this summer. They must have overheard my husband and I talking and decided to perform well so they would be dug up and taken with me - like I don't have enought OTHER stuff to do besides dig up a bunch of plants and then RE-PLANT them 5 miles away. Oh well...gotta do it.

I think I have posted before when we did the "Home of the giant..." that my home town has a huge pumpkin fesival in the fall that draws huge crowds and media attention. Well we are a lil pumpkin crazy there so why not paint the water tower to look like the very gourd that brings such wonderful revenue to our little town?

Well it was growing good til they died...yup I took this a while ago I just haven't posted it yet, and now I need to get down and take pix of the tiger lillies that have taken their place....I did not plant these, which is why they are doing so well. We have been in our house almost 2 years, and they just keep coming back and I love it. If I had anything to do with these I am sure they would be dead by now. So I am going to enjoy them as long as I can.
I will take a picture of the new flowers and add later.

Hi! Thought it was about time I got back here! :)
Petunia's still alive!! The wave variety!
My own container creation! Geranium in the middle, Ivy, etc. It's still doing well!
Everyone laughs at me as I'm known to have a black thumb...well...almost a month later and all of these are hanging in there!

I don't have room for a garden (rental), but I do have a landing on my back steps that gets plenty o'sunlight.
So I planted a pot garden. I've got tomatoes, sunflowers, nastursiums, a mother's day marigold, onions, oregano and now my favorite one--a potato.
I "rooted" a Yukon Gold potato from a funky tater we had leftover from a bag we bought at the grocery store.
This was my potato the Friday of Memorial Day weekend:
Here it is yesterday (a week later):
I just got done watering my pot garden and I swear that potato has gotten bigger from that picture yesterday!
