I'm mainly posting about my obsession for fothergilla gardenii dwarf variety ..
Those Spring flowers just grab me every time .. thus the many pictures of this remarkable little three season shrub (and yes .. I always want more of them once bitten !
There are other plants waking up finally .. but I have so much work to accomplish yet before decent pictures will be posting.
On a happy note we have all the wildlife in our back garden that we had before the patio work.
Mr. Chips, our chipmunk, has managed to dig a hole smack in the middle of foot traffic .. what can we do ? We had been so worried the construction would drive him completely away.
Sophie, our cat, even kept watching the deck doors for him .. he comes to eat sunflower seeds there.
The robin family has at least three babies in their nest now .. two little beaks showing.
I guess I have to admit to another obsession of Dre's Dagger fern
The texture against other plants fascinates me .. it is smaller than most and so easy to manage.
Well .. today is the 21st of May , our official long Victoria Day weekend .. also the official "get gardening" day for most Canadians ... so I, and Garden PA, will be out there doing our best to whip the gardens into shape.
My sad note is that I fear the majority of my Japanese maples have been severely damaged by this unbelievable winter .. I have an "expert" coming to tell me whether I can save any of them or if they are toast .. it is amazing how attached you can become with these little beauties.. I just have to bite the bullet and move on ..
