This long, dark winter....it's a sure sign that Spring is just around the corner, as they always set them out a month beforehand. You gotta know that so far north the sun starts to set at 3:30 up here. YAY! It was so nice!
I saw daisies and violets, baby's breath, pansies, lobelia, phlox, morning glory, and corn, peas, watermelon, beans, carrots, chives, tomatoes, peppers, and SUNFLOWERS!
Do you all think I am nuts or what. I want to plant them all right now!
What do you grow in your gardens??
Oh hey, just a bit south of you, I have one yellow crocus in full bloom, others getting ready, my tete a tete's are coming up, and my silly primroses are blooming!
I have spearmint, oregano and lavender in one bed, hollyhocks and roses in another, a long driveway long bed of roses in various colors with a row of grape hyacinths, another front of the house bed with a butterfly bush, a hydrangea, multiple primroses, crocus and tete-a-tetes, a triangular bed with a whiskey barrel dead center - around the barrel we have heather bushes (now also in bloom), in the barrel we have a Peony Tree and some pansies that circle the tree, and we have a huge front bed along the street that needs a LOT of work - it has coreopsis, yarrow, a twisted hazelnut tree, toadflax, iceplants, squaw grass, a couple of astors, and a few primroses...all of which still leaves this bed looking pretty empty.
Can you guess that I have a hard time keeping up with weeding? Oh yes, and along the kidney shaped bed that our 5 front Fir trees are in, we have heather, vinca, carnations,2 rhododendrons, a bed of lithidora, plus a growing little colony of some kind of hens and chickens type plant, and there is another bed we are redoing - yanked all the irises that refused to bloom, and around the 3 rhodoendrons in this bed we are going to begin planting - we did put in two snowball bushes last year...in the corner of this bed are our lilacs, violets and crocus.
Ooh...and then there is the veggie garden we'll be putting in again (fewer tomato plants this year and a bit less miracle grow!
, and my languishing old fashioned garden in the back that needs a total rehaul - it has non-blooming peony's, spiderwort (from back east, a cutting from my great-grandmother's plant from my gram's farm) and that's it since I killed our Bleeding Heart cutting from back East.
Now aren't you sorry you asked?
