I’ve found birds, plants, decorations, and garden spaces for this week’s alphabetical gardening letter P.
The pine siskins are cute visitors to the garden. Their yellow wing bars sets them apart from sparrows and goldfinches.
In the Fall I love to add some pumpkin heads to the garden. These are made by either turning the pumpkin into a planter or by adding bits and pieces from the tool bench to create the faces.
The plants in the garden starting with p can be endless … pansies, peonies, petunias, poppies, periwinkle, phlox, prairie coneflowers and parsley. Each blooms at different times to make the garden colourful all season long.
One of the best things we did was make plant tables and use big containers for the kitchen garden. These make it so much easier to look after the plants, no awkward bending or hard digging to get the crops/plants out of the ground.
On one of our daycations I found this old tool in a museum and it just reminded me of the letter P. I’m not sure what sort of tool it is or what it was used for.
I’m continuing to add to my personal alphabet with P.
P – patient, photographer, parent
