I went home to the parents' house today. I took and planted many perennials and annuals in my sister's flower bed. My mom isn't a flower person, though she did mention something about hanging baskets. I have a few to spare in the basement. I'll see what I can whip up for her before Mother's Day.
I took a walk through the woods before I left. I found 4 small dogwoods. I dug them up and brought them back with me. I know it's a bad time to transplant these, but I'm thinking with enough shade and moisture, I can nurse them along till fall when I can plant them out. I also found two small yucca plants.
In exchange for planting the bed, I had to dig up some irises that haven't been divided for a long time. I brought back a few.
It's sunny and 63 degrees. Sunday's picture added to the Sunday Ritual.
My favorite part of this garden so far is on the street side of the trellis. Here I have a couple of hibiscus, some shasta daisies that should bloom this year, some Black Eyed Susans, and a few other things. The driveway has been lined with seedlings from my wintersown petunias. So far, all the plants are a deep dark purple. I may need to purchase a couple of six packs if we get any reds in the store.
I'm exhausted as usual. Planning to spend this evening catching up on some rest. I did manage to get the tomatoes set in their locations, but not planted out. Maybe Monday after work I can get this done although rain is in the forecast, again.
