    SPARKLEMULCH, garden map, tulips, and more!!

    I've neglected this space in lieu of Tumblr, on the bright side there's a whole slew of gardeners over there and I can easily load up photos! But the down side is that then I miss the wonderful gardeners here and of course everything is not quite so organized... like my seeds (it's on my todo lis...

    Bloom Day December

    Photo-upload-420185?1418750446 The Amaryllis Bogota blooms on, looking exotic against the snowy outside, a glorious splash of colour. I bought a pot of Christmas Roses, _helleborus_. I saw them a few days ago when I was at the supermarket and resisted because they were a little expensive although after some thought I reali...

    gearing up already

    Someone elsewhere commented on her hellebores blooming, so I went out and looked at mine. The purple one, which blooms first, has a bunch of smallish new leaves. Looks good for January or February. That one blooms before the pollinators, so it doesn't reproduce much. The white one blooms l...

    cactus flower

    Photo-upload-420157?1418666632 Meanwhile, a limb from my Mom's neighbor that literally fell over the fence a year ago, ended up tripling its size in a bucket of soil where I planted it, and this week went into flower.

    Rehab instead of garden

    I got some crazy bee in my bonnet and stripped the 16 casement windows in my living room. For the first time in 30 years they close all the way. And, it looks gorgeous. I put up plastic sheeting, unsecured at the bottom in case I need to seal with rope caulk as well, but so far I've seen no movem...

    Miniature roses

    Photo-upload-420059?1418411412 For weeks now the 99p shop in town has been selling these miniature roses & I've looked at them & wanted to get some! Today we were in town & my wife asked me if I wanted to get some - well, what a question! As if she didn't know me after 40 years! So we bought one of each colour, pink. dark red,...

    More like March than December

    Photo-upload-420105?1418519815 The series of 3 connected Pacific storms rushed onto the coast but by the time they reached us they had sobered down to warm temperatures and a steady rain, with the result that snow was washed from the sidewalks and roads; water gurgled merrily down the drains; fog, mist and clouds draped the va...

    Miniature rose in small trough on balcony

    Photo-upload-420214?1418833550 I have had one mini rose, a deep velvety red, that I have been growing on the balcony for many years. It flowers every year & receives no protection from the weather. It is planted in a small trough on the bar around the middle of the balcony railings. It doesn’t look very good in the photos...
