The flower beds out front are really putting on a good show this year, which is encouraging because it’s taken quite a long time to get things planned out, put in place and started. It’s hard to think of Spring in the Fall and it’s even more tiring planting all those bulbs and praying they all make it. But after 4 years of nurturing our rather crappy and clay filled soil, everything looks really bright and cheerful and above all beautifully cute.
Even the Irises that were separated last year and moved around seem to be coming back very well. I’ve had a few rotters that didn’t make the wet winter, but Irises are sometimes hard to keep going if you don’t get them planted right the first time. And then it’s just soft rot and fungus central….
If you think my planting is done, trust me it’s not ^_^ I’ve got Trilliums to put out (in the bed that never grows), a new version of coralbell called Sweet Tea that’s just going to be AMAZING once established and some cyclamen too. Oh and my garlic and onions are sprouting thanks to the unseasonably warm weather.
There’s alot to be excited about right now.
