My first perennial garden at this house is in!! I still need to add mulch, but this is it!!  Mostly store bought stuff, but I do have home grown lupine, delphinium, coneflower, and gallardia in here.  (You can't really see it, since it's so small).  I did end up planting 2-3 of the same seedlings close together in hopes that it makes a stronger plant(s).  Hooray!!  Next project: Start the veggie garden and establish an east facing perennial garden!!

Now the fun begins, watching it grow. Caring, nurturing, and protecting from those darn critters.  Mulching is a great idea.  I wish I would have done that in the beginning.  

The veggie garden will satisfy your needs right away.  It grows fast and you can eat it. Surprised

Have fun my friend.  Gardening, great for the mind, body and Spirit.

Well Lark, you're knowledge came in handy again today! I was out weeding my garden this afternoon and pulled the wrong weed. It was right on top of a bees nest. They got me twice before I could my dog and me inside. Luckily I'd noticed some wild plantain growing on the side of my house. Plucked some, made a poltice like you showed me, and put it on both the stings! Yikes, guess I'm done for today!

How you doing?  You can 'reapply' a fresh poultice and adhere it with a bandaid and keep it on. Reapply as needed.  Hope they didn't get you too bad.  Those ground bees are NASTY.  Especially when they are digging down getting ready for winter.
