High Desert in May 2011

Do you like antiques, gardening, and spring?

Mark your calenders for May 21st, the semi annual sale at Carriage House Antiques…Hot dogs, singing, door prizes etc. When you walk into Carriage House Antiques, notice the warm welcome you receive. It’s a friendly place. You’ll love this place and will want to have extra time and cash on hand. There are a variety of antiques to choose from and even a spot for the Mr. in your life to hang out. Incidentally, I’ve found many beautiful gardening items at Carriage House Antiques. Looking for fun tables to add to your garden or yard this spring? You can find them there. Great prices, too!

Don’t you love the spring colors in yards and gardens in the High Desert? I’m amazed at how roses thrive in the High Desert. If you don’t have a green thumb, you can grow roses. Rose plant fertilizer helps, too. Last year I planted roses and snap dragons, and this spring they’ve grown quickly. Must be that fertilizer and water I’ve been giving them. Want spectacular color in your garden? Plant roses and snap dragons. Add some lavender. It’s supposed to deter certain unwanted critters from roses. Plus lavender plants add more color.

Back to the green thumb, the key to a thriving high desert garden is to plant native plants and flowers. Often, hummingbirds visit my gardens. They are a joy to observe as they appear in front of you, hovering in mid air and sounding like little motors running.

Gardening is an ever-learning experience and rewarding. Community gardening has become an interest to many lately around the country. The High Desert has joined in, too. If you’re interested in community gardening of the High Desert, find out more information from The Green Maven. The Green Maven on Facebook mentioned that Hesperia Garden Club is having a plant and yard sale from 8-5 on Saturday May 14th at 10783 Oakwood Avenue, Hesperia.
