Quinn collected these giant pods filled with seeds at the garden that I volunteered at last week. We are going to try to start them for that garden and some for our yard. We soaked the seeds over night and nicked them with sand paper. He is excited to see what these seeds will become.

Ipomoea alba, otherwise known as Moonflowers are so called because they bloom in the evening. They have large 4 to 6 inch fragrant, white or pink flowers on twining vines. The flowers open quickly in the evening and last through the night, remaining open until touched by the morning Sun.

Moonflowers grow to a height of about 15 feet. The leaves are rather large which allows the plant to be used as an annual in a northern garden. Propagation is usually by seed. The seed should be nicked with a file and then soaked overnight before planting. Moonflowers should be planted when the Moon is new or increasing in light!

My New Garden Pal

I had to take a picture of this gal- so everyone would believe me. I don't know where she came from. she followed me around all afternoon while I was working outside. I fed her a little fish food. I couldn't believe how tame she was.

Blooming Iris

I was given these Iris bulbs that August and I mass planted them in an empty raised bed. I had no Idea what kind they were - short or tall or what color. It has been fun to see the different varieties blooming.

Dumpster Diving Finds: old Barn Doors

Well, I had noticed the little wooden gate on the curb next to some trash bags - just sitting there for a couple of days everytime I drove by. I thought I could use it along a path in the garden somewhere. I finally got brave enough to stop and ask if I could have it. It was Mother's Day so Scot HAD to help me go and get it. - yes,he thinks I am crazy- but he just lives with it and goes along with my ideas. The Owner even helped us load the gate and several others he had into the truck. I think he felt sorry for me since it was Mother's day so he found more junk for me- 4 large cedar planter boxes. Now, I have to find something cool to do with this free junk. Quinn just said "It is kind of looking Antiquey around here" - nice way to put like a junk yard.
