Swing Up And Ready For Occupancy

I finally found a canopy patio swing! I searched the Internet, and every store around the area and beyond, but all said swings are "out of season"! Hello--this is "the season" in the desert southwest! Anyway, it isn't the perfect one, but it will do. My last one had a nice plush look to it--this one is plain, but I just couldn't wait any longer. My flowers are all planted and I am ready to watch them grow!

I can't bear to pull up the last remaining Vincas. I wanted this bed for more sweet peas and if I don't get the seeds in soon it will be too late. I still haven't scattered any wildflower seeds--all this gardening stuff needs to be finished today because I'm really out of time as far as the weather. Even one week late in planting can make a difference come early spring, because if it get hot too fast, all the stuff dies off.

Haven't had a bloom on my hibiscus for a while so this one surprised me! We have dropped over 20 degrees in one day to a gorgeous 72 degree high, so all the newly planted flowers are just as happy as I am!

What a nice swing! And I wouldn't have had the heart to pull up the vinca either. I figure if somethings growing and blooming, let it be...

have a wonderful day in the garden!
