Up Potting

Some of the garden tasks for this spring includes up-potting the various cutting, seedlings, new and last-year plants.

I collected many volunteer Black Diamond heirloom watermelon seedlings popping up in the yard to give away.

Holiday Weekend Flowerworks

Holiday Memorial Day weekend means extra time to work the garden. The man put the finishing touches on his stone layout, then we were off to purchase a rose bush (Neptune) to add to the blue/purple theme. I was then able to finalize our backyard garden and get plants into the ground.

 

The kids of course were on-hand to clown around and check out the new plantings.

Once the yard project was done, it was time to take stock of what was blooming…

Scenes from the March Garden part 2

The (nearly) everblooming Double Knockout Rose is off to an energetic start this year.

 

This is the first time since planting that I’ve seen multiple blooms on the¬†Mountain Flame delosperma.

Tiny but mighty pink blooms on this groundcover thyme. (Can’t remember¬†which thyme this is…Elfin? Woolly?)

Betony, salvia and Autumn Lily Azalea:

  

The bulbs are blooming!
