Today I'm linking up with MsGreen Thumb Jean over at this week's Bloomin' Tuesday where bloggers show what's blooming in their part of the country.
This is my favorite part of the garden gate--that delightful blooming clematis and the Country Garden plaque. It's always a joy to see those blooms each spring. I plant and take care of the flowers around the outside of the garden, and Hannah takes care of the vegetables inside: Sometimes the wind and birds carry seeds and cause my flowers to grow on Hannah's side of the garden!
This past weekend I transplanted two columbines blooming in prominent spots inside the raised vegetable beds taking up Hannah's valuable space. I planted them in their new home on the north side of the garden shed and in back of the hostas: The next photo is taken from the opposite direction to better show the Solomon's Seal (below far left) in this same bed. Actually, when I look at this picture now, it surely seems I need to move more plants out of there instead of putting new plants in! What was I thinking??The Siberian Iris are just starting to show some color:And below is the garden at a distance. As you can see, it's not flat at all...we're on a hill, and that hill becomes harder and harder to climb the 10th time you go and come from the shed. But it's all fun!
I'll post an updated photo once the yarrow, black-eyed Susans, and coneflowers begin blooming on this side of the fence:And because a friend wondered if I'd show an "after" photo of all the flower planting going on in last week's post, here are the results....right side with the watering cans (petunias and lantana) next to the azalea: And left side of the steps with the flower pots with mostly lantana and also some geraniums--top and bottom (and a couple of pots that still need plants): That's all for this week.
