I can't help but play in my flower garden

Posted by Misty Montano on Tuesday, May 18, 2010, In : Flower Garden 
I hope to move from our house soon and, if not soon, then in the next year.  If there is one thing I could keep as mine, it would be my flower garden.  It’s been a labor of love and frustration.  I decided to plant it years ago when I couldn’t keep grass alive due to the intense southern sun exposure.  The first year water restrictions went into place was the last year I saw grass in that area.  That was also my first summer at the house, so I had no idea what kind of watering that sectio...

It opened this morning!

The lone orange in the sea of pink!

Tiger lilies are what my Grandma Baker grew by the porch.  They remind me of her and therefore are my favorite flower.  I can't express how happy and emotional I was this morning when I saw it had finally opened and saw that it was indeed a tiger lily.  I planted a bunch of them in the fall and didn't know if they had survived the winter and the late spring snow storms.

My in progress flower garden

Posted by Misty Montano on Tuesday, June 23, 2009, In : Flower Garden 
Grass simply would not grow on the south lawn in front of the huge evergreen at our house.  I've always loved flower gardens so I gave up the grass fight and turned that whole section of yard into a flower garden.  I tore it all right up, which included the grass that was growing.  Now I've got a yard with it's own mini-ecosystems and I'm truly at a loss at what to do.

I'd love to hear your suggestions on what I can do!

About Me: No I'm not a mystic

I answer to many names Misty Lou, Misty Jean, Mistycal and even Extrafancy are just a few of the nicknames to which I answer. The most important names though are Wife, StepMom and Mom. With all these names it's sometimes hard to know who I am! This blog started as a Nebraska girl learning, trying, succeeding and failing at gardening in Colorado. Along the way in growing my garden, I grew my family too as I married a wonderful man and became StepMom to two precious Boys. Now our family grows more as we have a Baby Girl. So here is all of me as I share my family, home and garden. BTW my middle name is Jennifer; my name is Misty Jennifer Montano.
