What a lovely week it turned out to be here after it started warming up.
I hope everyone has been enjoying your week.
This week was spent doing some odds and ends outdoors.
I got the long bed touched up and ready for some more planting.
Also got the little fence painted and it looks so much better.
The lilies are really growing all around in the beds and along the woodland bed.
All of the roses now have buds on them and I had to spray them because the aphids had found the new buds already.
The Bluebells are all in bloom now in the Shade garden,
The Weigela shrub ‘Wine & Roses’ is getting buds. Everything around here is covered with a dusting of yellow pollen and I sneeze my head off while working outside but I still love being outdoors again.
Heuchera ‘Georgia Peach’ is looking good. I have a few heuchera’s around in the garden but I really love the color of this one.
Seed pods from all of the Sugar Maple trees are flying everywhere. First comes the seeds and then the stems which will mean more clean up or I will have little maple sprouts everywhere.
Pots of lantana were brought out of the basement this week along with all of the geraniums that were held over winter. I have yet to bring out the tub with the Elephant Ears.
There was some planting of a few new and replacement plants this week.
2 Queen of the Prairie from Prairie Moon Nursery.
2 roses, Julia Child and a red Falstaff climbing.
Lillies from Gilbert H.Wild & Sons:
Carlotta, French Tutor, Gordon Biggs, South Seas and a free Little Dance came with the order.
2 Amethyst candytuft
A Jacob Cline Bee balm replacement from Gorge Top Gardens.
Also new from them: Campanula ‘Cherry Bells’, Clematis ‘Niobe’,
Echinacea ‘Tomato Soup’ and a variegated Liriope.
Also for your information Gorge Top Gardens is having a Half Off Sale on their perennials and they have a wonderful guarantee on their plants.
My daughter, Shelly and I got in a three mile walk Wednesday to Rose Lake. Her new puppy did not know what to think about all of that water at the lake. Also she was fascinated by her reflection in the water. LOL! And there was this man who was also walking around the lake talking to himself rather loudly that had us uneasy. I whispered to my daughter that I had forgotten the mace. LOL!
I am joining in today for “Filling the Frame with Chris from “Cultivating Life & Roses” with a macro picture of a China Town tulip.
Also go over to “Tootsie Time” with our hostess Glenda and ‘Flaunt Your Flowers’ for Fertilizer Friday.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
