@Philis,
plains? I don't remember where you are (thereabouts) Philis.



It looks like my forestiera neomexicana have survived another year. I treat them badly as they are native, and so far they have come through. I don't remember the common name, something like new mexican olives. My lavenders and nepeta and rosemary are swell. My two roses may have crumped.

@ossobuco,
One of the midwest states well known for where the wind comes sweeping down the plains.

@Philis,
I was about to apologize as you probably told me this before. Brain like sieve, etc. We have wooly winds here too, this time of year.

@ossobuco,
So, what - We have winds, we have scorching heart, we have a month or two of pleasant, and then we have winter. Hard to parcel out gardening days. Luckily it it beautiful here.

well, hopefully I will purchase my plants today, harden them off during the coming week and have them all in the ground next weekend (no wind please and moderate soil temps)

I built a raised flower bed and put in some lily-of-the-valley for the Lovely
Bride. I planted two hardy shrub roses (one white, one red) to flank the
pink one I planted last year.

The tulips were gorgeous but are now past peak.

The bleeding hearts are looking good.

Trying to decide what annuals to get once the tulips are done.

I like to stay away from annuals or plants you must dig out of the ground for winter. Staying with perennials is best for me. I have tried a gardenia 3 times and lost it each time, I really want a gardenia bush. And azalea has died on me 3 times also and I really want azalea. Lilacs did real well early spring.

@Philis,
Lilacs bloomed about three weeks earlier than they did in my childhood. They used to come into bloom right on my birthday but they were opening in the final days of April.

@dyslexia,
Mild autumn here, every day's a good day to spend some time in the garden.
