What a beautiful weekend we had here. Finally! Yes!
The weather has warmed up and we are getting some sun now and not only is the garden loving it so is this gardener.
I hope all of you Momma’s had a wonderful Mother’s Day.
My Saturday was spent with my daughter as we visited garden centers and had lunch. A gardeners perfect day.
I managed also to get flowers for a planter for my Mom which I filled for Mother’s Day.
Also picked out two new plants for Mother’s Day, a yellow Lantana and a Black Heart potato vine which I hope to get potted up this week. I love Lantana for the butterflies and bees.
There are plants growing in the little greenhouse that are flourishing and wanting to get potted up.
And in the garden the Ajuga ‘Burgundy Glow’ is spreading out now in its home along the walkway.
The Weigela ‘Florida’ has gotten buds since a week ago.
This is going to be the little bush’s first blooms so I am excited.
The ‘Queen of the Night’ tulips are finishing up but their blooms have lasted longer than some of the other tulips I had blooming. Last spring they did not even bloom and I almost pulled them up. Now I am so glad that I left them be thanks to advise from Nell Jean.
And now I have a question for you gardeners of wildflowers…..
Have any of you seen a pink Trillium?
While walking last week at a local woodland park in a patch of Great White Trillium was this lone pink trillium.
I looked it over to see if it was a Painted trillium but it does not have the markings and it is not a purple one because the leaves are all wrong. Some of you may know its name but I have never saw a pink one. It was a beautiful in amongst the white blooming ones.
Update: Thank you all for telling me the reason for the pink Trillium is that it turns pink as the bloom ages.
This is suppose to be a beautifully warm week so I plan to spend time outdoors as much as I can, as I suspect you all will too, so…..
