But at least it is something I love ... however the HUGE ouch situation can be a worry.
So some of the plants screaming at me :
The plan started with the big containers you see to the left .. to go in our wooden half barrels with added filler plants .... who's idea was this again ? .... I should really think things out more for now on!
I kept an eye on the tulips I have been waiting to see open ... they are such a tease !!
My Red Majestic is unfolding it's gorgeous leaves in shiny dark purple .. what a show off ?
I have a curios situation with a "sort of" trapped plant that doesn't seem to be bothered that it is trapped .. I have had advice that it will not survive .. yet some how it does !
You go girl !!
The hellebore bed is very packed further up ... at this end you can see more with out trying to figure out "what is what" ????
Still a few pretty flowers left ...
My one azalea starting to unfold ever so carefully ....
This tiny gem was asked about last year .. such a simple little plant but big in the eye candy department ? .... breaks up all the huge hellebore leaves etc ... cool and refreshing !
Another "cool" white flower is epimedium "Niveum"
I love plants in miniature ... Little Lanterns columbine is just to cute for an under planting with my Japanese Maple in the raised bed.
A friend of mine shares the same thoughts about how darn cute they are.
I planted ONE "wood phlox" years ago and it has made itself right at home , lining the hellebore bed.
Another "sneaky" multiplier which I do NOT mind in the least has been a freckled violet on the ground side ... it took a few hits this past winter as did many plants that shocked me.
I did manage to getting all the potting and planting done today ... but that meant regular garden chores did not get done ...I can never get ahead of this insane season when it starts off like a jackrabbit .. or crazy chipmunk like our Mr. Chips ... MORE vitamins please !!!!
