Lenten Roses and Snowdrops
and more Camellias
It’s time to really start cleaning out the freezer as it is nearly time to plant and harvest again. That means a lot of apple dishes for the next few weeks. I started with a bag for more apple butter. Lovely stuff apple butter. This batch was just as tasty as previous ones.
While I was at it, I made some Dutch Apple Bread too. This was a good recipe, but I have plans to change a few things next time.
While I was at the nursery with Shannon, I might have found a really cute orchid.
A really super cute oncidium orchid. It’s one of the Twinkle miniature varieties.
It has so many adorable little flowers and a delightful scent. I raised orchids many years ago, but I may have to collect a few again. SO CUTE!!
Mostly because I am tempted to spend too much money. lol I love looking at all of the plants and seeds. It’s just too much fun to dream about all of the plants that could be in my garden. When it comes right down to it, I think I am more of a dreamer than a gardener.
I like to put in a vegetable garden, and I like to harvest, but I sure don’t want to keep it year-round like some gardeners. I just like to garden from April to October. Then take a nice break over the winter. The winter is really all about knitting for me.
Anyway, I did take a little detour to Al’s with my friend Shannon last week. We were looking for some fruit trees for her. I might have been a little too excited about all of the plants. And the seeds.
Shannon picked out 5 new fruit trees to add to her orchard. I just kept petting the branches. lol
