Since it rained until late yesterday evening, I think I got a good bit done. I set up and planted my fan grate yesterday evening. I kinda messed up assembling it. I got the pole on the crosspiece stuck and it didn't go down on the pipe as far as I would have liked. Once the spagnum moss, dirt and plants were in it was heavy. I hope the pipe does not bend, it is 1/2 inch copper pipe. Copper is soft. Pics as soon as DD gets back with the camera.
Today, I planted two containers for Mom, repotted her mini rose we got her for Easter, and set up my big half whiskey barrel planter after Richard drilled the holes in it . I need some more packing peanuts to fill it in partially so it won't use so much dirt. I also put a large plastic pot upside down in the bottom. The plants I am putting in it just don't need that much root room.
I did some weeding around the spot where I have the fan grate and barrel set up. There is a gate that leads to nowhere, on one side of it I have pinecone ginger, which is just peeping through the soil, and shell ginger planted. On the other side I am putting alternanthera "party time" and pink begonias. I have the barrel and fan grate on either end. I will also plant around the pipe for the fan grate, probably torenia. It should be a nice spot when finished. I had to dig two beauty berry bushes up that were volunteers. We have them all over. I also got one of my yellow hibiscus planted. I think that is all, all I can remember anyway.

Your ginger sounds interesting. I love ginger tea when I have a migraine, are those types something you can make tea with?
You got a lot done Sharon.I puttered around in my hot house moved plants out and then planted my little zinnias under my windmill.Planted a big zinnia and weeded one in the beds, Planted some scarlet runner beans that had needed planting for a while they had runners already to go up the trellis.Few other odds and end.Watered a little and quit.
wish i was busy,,pouts, to wet and rainy!
I'm really looking forward to seeing photographs of the fan grate and the whiskey barrel planter.
Sounds like a very productive day Sharon. I'm still waiting for spring to arrive :(
Mary, I don't think these are used for making tea. They are ornamental.
thank you for visiting my blog.
Aloes, here is a link to my photobucket album you will, of course, have to click on the one that says "animals." Not all of the cats are on there. Most were on another site but we lost them when the computer crashed.
