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.

Joining in with Our World Tuesday this week.

Happy May!

  5. We're also having a gloomy week. Pouring and pouring. When I see your plants I've an impulse to do botanical prints with the beautiful leaf shapes.
    Wish you glorious days ahead.

  10. Your hostas are further along than ours. As for the green leafy thing...my first reaction was weed - but it is so light colored (most of our weeds are darker)...I am curious what others think.
