A Day for Planting
The weather continues to be a bit unsettled here. After a couple of glorious days I really thought the heavy rains were a thing of the past but i was wrong.
Sunday was very gray and the rains came down quite heavily. I couldn't do any of the gardening I planned.
What a difference a day makes. The sky cleared up considerably on Monday and I started planting my container garden.
I made some progress but I still have a lot to do.
This Solomon's Seal below is one of my favourite plants in the garden and one of the few perennials that I planted and kept for years.
These hostas are a new addition to the garden. I planted 12 bulbs last year. Some in container boxes and some in the garden plot. Only 7 of the hostas sprouted this year.
Petunias are something I usually buy in a hanging basket but this year I bought a bunch of starter plants and put them in one of my colourful pots. It was a lot less expensive than purchasing a hanging basket which I never hang anyway as I've got no where to hang it.
|This green leafy thing is sprouting. I can't tell if it is a plant or a weed. Does anyone know.|
