Anywho, I went out with my camera this morning and took pictures out back, out front, and down in the parking strip. I'll start today with the front, only because I'm so excited to share my new Allium that a friend in the neighborhood gave me.
It was sorta hard to capture its magnificence in photos.
It's like a giant firework.
I love, love, love it.
So cool, right?
The Lilac that I whacked to pieces is showing green.
I knew it would make a comeback.
In the wagon, I stuck a cute little Thrift that I got at the Garden Blogger's Plant Swap a few weeks ago.
I stuck my usual Tuberous Begonia in the tree pot again this year.
It turned out to be more red than I would have liked, I was expecting more of a hot pink, but it'll be pretty anyway.
I've never been able to make Astilbe very happy, so I was very excited to find one of them looking like it's gonna bloom well this year.
I don't know what I did different, but it worked.
The Dad gave me a six pack of pink Lilies for Mother's Day, three I stuck in the back and three out front.
A neighbor gave me some Walla Walla seed onions last year, that I planted in the old sink.
Quite a few came up, and were harvested, but the remaining ones ended up growing through the winter.
I didn't think they'd amount to much, but at least a few look like they're makin' onions.
And last, one of my favorite plants, that I've had since 2002, is just starting to bloom.
'Ann Folkard' Geranium.
The latest blooms out back, and down on the sidewalk, coming up this week.
