It was a cold Tuesday, and the ground was still too wet to plant in. One thing I remembered to do was move the stakes and plant markers I had put in the newest bed to keep people from walking on my newly emerging plants this spring.
Here's a photo of the bed with the stakes out. I forgot to mention that Larry is the one who likes to edge the beds, and he is thinking about taking the brick edging off. I don't really care either way.
Turning around to look to the east and south is the area that was planted a few years ago when our neighbor had to have her water main replaced, and they dug into our yard, too. You can see her curb bed across the street. She recently replaced what she had in there with bare root rose bushes.
I dug out the fireworks goldenrod that was where the closest 3 daylilies are planted. I still have plenty of the goldenrod on the ends of the beds.
The 2 small plants in the corner above are the primroses I recently planted. One has new blooms coming on.
Here are the milkweed plants coming up. The different kinds of liatris are getting quite thick.
This is facing west and south. Our front sidewalk is showing a bit on the left. The bushy plant on the left is knautia, 'Mars Midget'.
Facing west, you can see the newer area in the back.
This is winter savory. I use it some for cooking, but also enjoy its little white flowers in the summer.
Walking around, facing west and south, the stokes asters in the middle will be blooming soon.
Facing back east, the Jupiter's beard that I moved part of last fall is loaded with buds. The perennial geraniums are blooming.
The lavenders are getting ready to bloom, too.
I'm hoping for some warmer temps so I can get everything planted and enjoy being outdoors. From the blogs I've read, it looks like lots of you are having cool temps, too. Some of you have experienced flooding and tornadoes. I hope things are going well for you, and that we all have a nice spring.
