Last nite I got home to find a box on my doorstep - full of little seedlings. My order from the plant house came through! No energy to put them all out, but I now have a sweet little planter full of brightly pink and white dianthus, a large white pot with a tiny little "patio blueberry bush" in it and a pot of chives out in the garden.
I've decided to do a little "vertical gardening" this year - instead of having all the planter wire holders all over my patio, I've put them in the back of the garden bed on top of some of the iris foliage. Then I put pots on them, and will fill them with nasturtium seeds and summer squash seeds. With some luck, I'll get veggies above and iris below (I think this will work - the iris can poke their flower stalks through the holes in the wire holders.)
I also have a new houseplant. It is a miniature lime tree. Right now it is in a small pot on what I hope is an inaccessible (to cats) shelf in the livingroom. The cats are rather angry at me that I have put it there. They seem to have some sort of delusion that all my plants are belong to them. I really want this little lime tree to do well, so I am going to pamper the lil' thing and keep the kitty paws away!
