I keep working on trying to make videos of garden subjects. Early spring in the morning meant a quiet visit with no distractions, as my husband and I walked around the garden.

On Care Of Ornamental Grass
I need the practice making video and my son needs the instruction. Next I’m going to divide those oversized clumps. I certainly will need help doing that!
Grasses Are No Longer Nouveau
I was slow to warm up to the use of these plants, partly due to the fact that my prairie plot grew grass like weeds. Literally, grasses were my worst and most persistent weeds in the garden beds. Still, as I became more interested in the designs in a New American style, the type by Piet Oudolf and Oehme van Sweden, it was only a matter of time before I ventured outside of my perennial comfort zone.
Having opinions on how they look best, while not quite up to the learning curve in getting the look I want, it was the graceful Miscanthus sinensis that caught my eye. I did make some mistakes with it. The plants looked puny and I didn’t look up the space requirements. Now it needs some dividing and moving to give it the space it needs.
I still think that grasses should have thoughtful placing, and see too many examples that look awkward.
That needs a bit of thought and maybe some photos for a future post.
As always, feel free to comment on the videos. I know I’m not the best looking chick on the garden blogging block, but I hope you enjoy the videos from “the little old lady next door”.

I have a long way to go admittedly, and I don’t consider myself star material, but I am making videos on Youtube. I’d like you to subscribe to my lowly channel, give me improvement suggestions, like me…. and share my garden and experiences through the videos.
I keep it real. You see the dandelions, the ground ivy, the undone tasks…. all kinds of mistakes, but you also see the beauty of a rural landscape, and the individual beauties of the changing season. I will make more how-to videos, as well, if all goes according to plan.
My latest two (the second one was a spontaneous response to the spring snow we had today!).
Except for the portrait aspect I like the second one better.
Garden Advice: Video About Planting Bulbs
Yes, I am a total amateur when it comes to making a video, but I have been planting bulbs for years and have made a couple how to videos. No one has subscribed to my channel or “liked” the videos on Youtube yet, but you could be the first. My friends and family said they liked them 🙂
If you’d like to know how to naturalize your spring bulbs, etc. here are some tips.
