I’m Using John Walker’s The Garden Planner For Planning More Perennials
It’s not very often we have temperatures in the minus 20s with it being caused by wind chill but this week it just keeps getting colder. This morning it felt like I was sitting outside when I came in to my office to turn on the computer.
I can’t see my breathe but I feel like putting on a my coat. Gotta turn the heat a little more this morning. Honey’s not going to want to go out there again this morning. On days like this she doesn’t take long and jumps around like a jack rabbit.
These are the days I am so happy I work at home.
So yesterday I started going through John Walker’s The Garden Planner looking for plants I’ve seen in other peoples yards and garden so I can put some of them in our yard. I can not only find the plants I don’t know the names of but also get enough info on the plant to know where to plant it and how tall it will grow.
We will have annuals as usual but this year we want to add a few more perennials to the yard. We will do that each year so that little by little we will have the yard we’ve dreamed about. I’d like to have wild flowers growing along our north property fence. It would give us more privacy.
I actually don’t get a lot of exercise when I go for walks because I spend most of that time taking pictures of flower, trees, shrubs and vegetable gardens.
A friend gave us The Garden Planner by John Walker. It’s full of trees, shrubs and flowers. This book is cut into five section and I mean cut. The sections flip individually. The top section is the taller trees. The left side of the book gives the detail while the right side shows a picture.
