Pam, at Digging hosts Foliage Follow-up on the 16th of the month. It was touch and go, but I got some photos taken today, and put a post together while visiting with my son about gardening and what he would like to plant in front of the house he, his wife, and son just moved into last summer. We're staying with them while our kitchen is being remodeled. They got lots done today.
The daffodils are getting larger.
The lamiums are getting ready to see how far I will let them spread.
The arum may be thinking about getting spready, like they are in other areas.
I'm glad to see the different varieties of perennial geraniums are greening up.
This is one of the mystery plants I had asked for help in identifying last year. I think these turned out to be poppies, which never bloomed.
The phlox are looking OK.
Some of the tulips are coming up. I need to loosen the leaves that were flattened by all the snow we had.
Autumn joy sedum foliage is looking good to me.
I'm happy that most of the spooky dianthus made it over the winter, but sad that the seeds are no longer available, so once they die out, I won't be able to get them any more.
The iris foliage isn't so pretty, but the plants look like they will be growing nicely.
This starts with a "b" but its name is not coming to my brain.
This was taken the 15th, and shows the foliage and the different lengths of the stems of the blooms on the River Nile begonia.
The cupboards are all out, and the lazy Susan installed. They had to adjust the ceiling above the steps to the basement. The recessed lights are in. I was mortified that they had to go into my cluttered room to do something with the wiring. I made a path to help the electrician get back out so he wouldn't have to take such big steps.
I asked this guy if it was OK for me to take a picture. He said he didn't want to be in one, but then, I asked if it was OK for his feet to be in one, and he consented.
The new windows are in, too, and I don't know why this typing was smaller until I enlarged it, and appears to be a different font. I like it, though.
I took more photos from my iphone when I went back to get some things I forgot this evening. I don't have what I need with me to get the photos to the computer. I'll get some more tomorrow. I hope to get some time to visit the GBBD and Foliage Follow-up posts in the next few days.
