Another Blooming Day has rolled around. And what a gorgeous day, too. We had lows last night at 40. Not quite a freeze, but pretty darn cold. I had brought in my seedlings just in case.
My garden is kind of just at the green stage right now. I need to think about mid spring blooms after the tulips fade.
Anyway, lots of spiderwort coming up. This stuff is pretty invasive, too. It migrates.
I have more lily of the valley. It is on the south side of the house and the north side. The south side gets the sun and the plants flower early. On the north side in full shade, the LOTV bloom a couple weeks later. Hooray for extended bloom time!
I also lost some of my ferns from this funky winter, but one kind came up.
I got my hanging baskets together. This is the purple allysum with flowering tobacco. I am hoping hummingbirds come to the flowering tobacco.
(Excuse the porch – we are repainting it currently). This will fill out nicely in a few weeks. I have 3 of these hanging on the front porch.
This is the gerbera daisy with the sweet potato vines.
This will be an interesting combo. I have heard the sweet potato vines can get really long.
I have 2 pots like this.
These pots sit at the top of the front steps. I have 3 more big containers on the back porch that I need to get plants for, so maybe more green house shopping in my very near future!
We just got back from dinner with my folks. Today is my dad’s 71st birthday. We have a warm weekend coming up and I get to meet another blogger this weekend!
