Commentor Watergirl, from the beginning of the month:
Took some garden photos this morning. Mostly wildflowers, but a couple of other things, too. Spring is early in central Illinois this year. I lost some of my favorites to voles this year, but what is coming up is very happy.Ferns not completely unfurled
Seems like my ferns have gone from zero to 60 in a heartbeat this week. I named the photos so you can tell what they are.Blackberry Ice heuchera
I love the improbable colors & shapes of heuchera (coral bell) leaves. Unfortunately, the Spousal Unit looks askance at what he considers ‘sickly’ colors, and the ones in our yard didn’t survive the record-breaking-horrible winter of 2015/16, so now he’s convinced they’re ‘unreliable’. (But then, the Spousal Unit has an inexplicable love for hostas, which I am convinced were invented for people who preferred plastic plants over real ones.)
Spent the last couple days unpacking & transplanting the first two dozen mail-order tomato plants (from three different companies), which involved far too much horsing-around-bags-of-potting-mixture for my aging joints. Still waiting for the big shipment from California… another many 15gallon rootpouches to shift, sigh…
What’s going on in your gardens this week?
