What a beautiful week it has been here in the hills. Lots of sunshine and warm temperatures while in other states they were getting record snows for this time of the year. I hope it stays away from here because it is so sad to see snow on top of the gorgeous blooms in the gardens now coming on.
while “Diana Clare” pulmonaria, which has been around for a few years, is loaded with buds and blooms. I love this one in particular because it has wonderful foliage for the shade garden all season.
Pulmonaria “Diana Clare” Lungwort Foliage
In the flower boxes with self seeded Pansies from last fall are blooming.
I really love this because I have some hardy weather blooms from them until it is time to add the tender annuals after May 20th.
Even most of my old “Rembrandt” tulips this spring are as no show so I will have to plant all new tulips this fall.
I hope it is not a dry fall so the clay soil will not be hard as a rock when it comes time to do that planting. We gardeners are always thinking ahead to the next garden chore. LOL!
I got the Fairy Garden set back up this week and the Gnomes have returned for the summer. All the garden décor has been brought out into the garden beds again and the beds have been weeded.
The porch furniture was cleaned and set up. So I have been enjoying the time out in the warm days this week.
I have three new rose bushes to plant this weekend that I got for a steal of $2.50 at Rural King. “Tropicana”, “Mister Lincoln” and “Paradise” roses well be added to the rose garden. As to how they will preform will be seen later but at that price not too much well be lost.
I am joining along with Glenda at “Tootsie Time” for her Fertilizer Friday, so join us and “Flaunt those Blooms”.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and….
