In the Garden

I know I'm biased, but how cute is a baby enjoying her first spring day in the sun? And the toes! Oh the toes.

Claire accompanied me in planting my side garden, one that has been woefully neglected over the past few years. I've been dreaming of filling it with lupins and calling it my wildflower garden, and this spring I have actually moved on from working and reworking my front garden. I planted lupins and 'Alaskian Snow daisies' (which my mom gasped at, so I guess they're pretty), and phlox and one 'Bachelor's buttons' that was stuck to the side of my lupins so he threw it in for free. I'm very excited! I found this guy on Kijiji who sells plants, and he dug them out of his huge garden for me, it was weird but informative, he was full of gardening wisdom, and cheap.

Troy's pretty sure I was sold weeds. Here's crossing my fingers for the lupins.


  1. When I was little, every summer my mom and I would drive down to the East Coast, stopping in her old hometown of Saint John. She used to admire all of the lupins in NB and one year decided to take some seeds from some of the wild lupins we saw on the side of the road. Boy did they ever grow! She just planted the seeds and the following year they were everywhere! They added some beautiful height at the back of her wild flower garden. Also a good perennial~ black eye susans and echinacea...both lovely!
    I'm jealous. I can't wait for the day that I have a house and a garden

  2. I hope my lupins take that well! Every year I do the same thing, driving while admiring all the lupins, I love them. The black eyed susans are a great idea too, they were my favorite plant when I was little. They grew on the trail to my treehouse!
