Saturday starts a new work week at the store. I will be the new Live Nursery Specialist. I'll receive bonuses when we beat our goals. I'll get an increase in pay. And best of all, I'll have a rotating schedule that should give me two days off each week and one weekend a month. I also get to be in charge of what plants get marked 1/2 price for clearance. Oh, the humanity. :)
But for now, I have work to complete on the model downstairs. I'll deliver it on Monday. Before that, I took a walk in the yard. I got my sun. It's 72 degrees and absolutely gorgeous.
Seeds in the hoophouse: zinnia, morning glories, sunflowers, etc.
Osmanthus fragrans is putting out new growth. They should bloom soon. The smell is intoxicating.
Wintersown nicotiana sylvestres
Wintersown zinnias - mix and 'red spider'
Rudbeckia collected and started last October 11. Overwintered in the hoophouse.
The Thundercloud Plum is leafing out. Still blooming.
Buddleia Davidii has new growth. This one was a pruned branch from my two year old plant. I stuck it in the soil last fall when I pruned it. I have several others that are also putting out new growth from pruned branches.
North Bed hostas.
The front "lawn"
Even after 4 days of rain, the vinca major is not doing too well on the front slope. I should trim the growth back to the ground to give it time to recover from being yanked out of the ground.
I love these pink flowers. I don't know what it is.
There are some yellow ones too.
The red dogwood is blooming.
It's 72 degrees and absolutely gorgeous.
Oxalis rubra is the pink flower. Oxalis stricta is the yellow one. Thanks gwenavyre!
