Geriatric Gardening

Yesterday and today is bulb planting – dahlias in abundance and gladiolas too. The standing bulb holer is a godsend, especially in the bed where I planted the dahlias  (above)- there are some rocks in there, and it was very difficult to core.

The bed where I put all the glads is 100% mulch and soil so it was easy to dig a trench… kuplink the bulbs in one after another.

I had a helper….

So glad I knew not to EAT the bulbs myself or feed them to Dawg….Sheesh, no comment!

My mother is playing golf at 12:30 so life in the EOS family is good. Happy Sunday.

  1. Geriatric tool or not, that thing is a back saver for sure. Your garden is going to look fabulous. I hope your mother shoots her age on her round today. When I was playing golf I never, ever kept score. It was much more fun that way.

    1. My garden is a long way from looking fabulous. You may remember when I started the renovation I had to dig up tons if perennial bushes and flowers that I have to my neighbor. I can’t exactly say Can I have them bank now? I have shopping to do in the next couple of weeks to fill up all the empty spaces.
      My mom is a score keeper as a rule but she’s given herself permission to pick the ball up and move on. I’m sure both Ernie Els and Jordan Spieth wish they could have done that last weekend!
