Hopalong Hollow....

Hopalong Hollow, where the Blueberries grow sweet, and the moss feels soft beneath your feet.

Tuesday, April 12, 2022


       My goodness, has it been 2 years since I posted here?!! I doubt anyone visits this blog anymore. But I think I will keep myself in the loop, just because this blog meant a lot to me for many years.

Spring is arriving here in the Hollow and I am  trying to keep up with over 10 gardens as they begin their lovely new growth in pots, tubs and earth.


 This year I'm determined to have success with my Sweet peas and Hollyhocks. I will be experimenting with dozens of  varieties and planting in several ways.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 
A new passion for ROSES has increased the rose population here in Hopalong Hollow to 87 roses and we are hoping for the sweet and spicy scents to permeate the air this coming season.
 
 This is Raspberry Twirl.
 (stock picture, hope ours will look like this!)
 
Last year was marvelous for blooms, Peonies, Dahlia and Annuals were the Showgirls of the garden.


 Thats all for now.... see you on my youtube channel:

    1. I haven't attended that show in about 5 years, in fact we do very few shows now. After 35 years of show, I am tired.

  6. Oh yes, we're still here! I stumbled on your blog and followed along beacause there was so much good to read and such inspiration...so glad you're back. I have those same wash tubs...I never thought to put bulbs in them, what a great springtime pop of color. Do you remove the bulbs and fill with summertime flowers later in the season? Mary

    1. I will leave them in the tub. After the foliage turn yellow, I'll pull if off and plant some annual flower seed in the tubs.
