I've also started my annual buying spree, ahem.
These African Daisies never do that great for me, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to have a couple every year.
If I remember correctly, the limey green plant in the pot is a hyssop.
It came up from last year.
A new delphinium came home with me, as well.
I don't know if it'll stay here, but I moved one of my black metal trellises from the back out front.
Iris never do much for me either, but I got one flower out of the clump.
My freebie maple tree is still goin' strong in his new potted home.
I never remember the name of this bulb.
I don't know where it came from, but it comes up all around in the yard.
The Beauty Bush, aka Weigela, is a beast right now.
I don't know the variety - it came from my mom's yard, and my grandma's yard before that.
They're prettiest when they're free to do their thing, I think, but my yard just isn't big enough.
I did refrain from whacking it early, though, so that it could bloom its little heart out.
So it's a wee bit wiley, but I can hack it when its done blooming.
The buds are just now starting to open.
The viburnum, on the other hand, is in full bloom.
Here they are, from outside the fence.
That lilac, that you can see in the above photo, is getting a major whack job here in the next few days.
I committed to a plant for the strip level with the sidewalk.
I remembered that the vinca in my backyard window boxes overwintered, so I dug it all up and stuck it in down there.
It's called Wojo's Jem, and it's variegated.
I found it in 2" pots over the weekend, so I bought three more to help fill in.
I planted six total, so we'll see how it does.
The creeping phlox down there must have heard me talkin' bad about it last week.
It's trying to redeem itself.
And last, I got all the Lesser Celandine cleaned up from the parking strip and gave my two rhubarb plants a dose of steer manure.
I heard them squeal when I was putting it on.
That's it for today.
