I was supposed to be head long into garden chores but what happened was .. going out to buy a few more accessories such as Triple Mix, Black Earth etc .. OK .. maybe a couple more plants but they were annuals this time ! I have to seduce some "hummers" to the deck railings with tubular flowers and wave petunias along with ruffled petunias in a red and white theme (I'm working on Canada Day flowers already .. we are the 1st of July for us Canucks !) .. end result .. stopped for some groceries and by the time I got home I was done in .. the crowds at the garden centers are totally without morals and completely ruthless (and that is just me on my own !!) ... the numbers of Canadians that have been let loose from winter blahs is scary .. best to hide in your own garden till the feeding frenzy is over !!
My sympathies to nursery and garden center staff retro active from Mother's Day !
Our resident "Sweetie Pie" couple .. still courting even with the nest finally built in my neighbors arbor.
Below is the perfect "newness" of our Pacific Sunset Maple's leaves .. all shiny and gorgeous : )
.... yes, I can not help it ... another picture of Jack .. each day he changes and makes me smile even more ! I have Casa Blanca lily behind him ..
The young-lings .. baby "Lady-in-Red" fern .. Aguilegia Canadensis .. and "Herman's Pride" lamium. Playing together so nicely .. so far !
My almost "chocolate and gold" planting .. so far I think this is Penstemon digitalis ‘Husker Red’ and my gold Creeping Jenny .. nice combo right ? .. I thought so too !
