what a beautiful morning for new plantings...
just a peak of the wildflower garden with a few seedlings/new butterfly bush.
one of my most exciting new acquisitions is the hellebore...i
got honeyhill joy...i have been wanting them since seeing them
on some of my favourite blogs.
i was thinking of putting them in a large container until the fall.
does anybody that has them have a suggestion/tip as what is best to do with them?
lots of new buds.
i also am very happy about this new bleeding heart...i have potted it in a
chocolate terra cotta pot made in italy. i want to be able to move it around
where it will do best. i first saw these on a trip to the lake cottage
on lake rosseau, port carling, cananda...i was in love.
so many of these are totally new to me...so i would take any
advice on what to do for them to make them successful.
another brand new to me....cyclamen...i love red.
jesse and i really found these most interesting...the bud hangs down
and the bloom comes upward over it.
some more coleus...i bought at the franklin farmer's market.
the vendor selling didn't know the variety...i was thinking rainbow?
this is another plant i couldn't wait to get home and get into
the ground...i am looking forward to it's blooms...akebia, chocolate vine.
i need a fair amount of ground cover so i am
trying...platt's black brass buttons...
and camilla de la estrella azul, blue star creeper.
these pretty little white wildflowers are popping up all
over...i have no idea what they are but i like them...anybody from
tennessee know these?
just in the ground today via jesse is aquilegia vulgaris, winky
purple & white columbine...in the wildflower garden...i decided to
add some perennials in there to have something more established
for the bugs and butterflies.
this is a deer resistant flowering bush...floreciendo
pieris montana de fuego, mountain fire pieris
the angelonia first blooms...near the fenced veggie garden.
gazanias just went in the ground two days ago and have
their first bloom...how wonderful...they are planted just outside
veggie garden on the edge of the berry bramble...to help
bring pollinators...protect against pests...for our
vegetables and the berries.
brand new blueberry bush from franklin farmer's market.
chive blooms in the herb garden.
abbey planted all these marigolds on the outside
we have been blessed with a new visitor to dash home
farm...rose breasted grosbeak...jesse spotted him and took
this photo...we will keep our eyes out to see if he stays or is
just passing through...this is a little south of where they normally are.
~click to enlarge~
we will try to get a closer shot of this beauty next time.
hope you all are having as much adventure and wonderful
discovery in the garden are we are having...
