Hello Gardeners. Well this week is starting out to be a wet one but it is expected I guess. What I really hate to hear about is the tornadoes that have hit some of the states and the loss of lives. My prayers and heart goes out to them.
In the garden the plants are really taking off now. Like this “Huskers Red” Penstemon. I just love the leaves on this plant even without blooms. I have a couple more that I started in the trail bed to move into the beds.
Creeping phlox subulata has some soggy blooms today and smells so good.
A check of the old Lilac bushes out on the bank this afternoon shows that the frosts and snow have killed so many blooms. I will miss their fragrance blowing across the yard. My hope now is maybe to get one bouquet to bring indoors.
In the woodland bed the irises, lilies and coneflowers are growing r well and so is the Ligularia , so all is not lost.
In the trial bed where I threw all kinds of seed in last fall more coneflowers, columbine and phlox plants are starting to grow. I am going to love adding them into the flower beds later on.
I have enjoyed visiting the garden blogs and seeing all of your gardens and plants, some of them helped me to escape the winter blahs when my garden was still covered in snow and it is so good to see what you are adding this year to your gardens. We are always finding room for more.
I hope you all are getting your gardening on and enjoying time back in the gardens.
Everyone have a wonderful week and…..
