Some of the things growing in our garden...

Category: My Garden | Posted: Sun May 01, 2011 3:06 pm

Well the rain just doesn't want to seem to let up. For the most part, our garden hasn't suffered too much. Some of the grass at our place has really gotten drowned, but most of the key vegetation is surviving so far...

And I know Toni was talking about how her Iris smelled like popsicles, so I took one in and ours smell like popsicles too, or something very sweet and fresh.

We have 2 Chester Thornless Blackerry bushes and the older, bigger one is building blooms. This is just the second year for the smaller one so it seems to be concentrating on mainly vegetative growth.

Our Rhododendron is actually blooming with white flowers. I don't know if it likes where it's planted too much since it's like clay and is always moist there, yet it's slowly growing and blooming. We just planted the foxglove behind it - I hope it takes.

We finally have a red rose if you can make it out in the burgundy bush in the back. The greener, yellow rose bush has the makings of many blooms as well, but none has opened yet.

Finally for today we purchased these colored spike things from a nursery. I don't think they had a label and they remind me of Astible blooms but they are annuals so they may be Celosia. I think they look neat following the small sidewalk that leads to our door.

It's really too bad we have rain in the forecast for the next few days. I just got done mowing the grass on Saturday and we can't really enjoy the outside, with it looking so neat, for a while. I did see a baby rabbit today come running from under a bush, so I keep the hopes up for calm sunshine.
