Progress Report

Category: Flowers and Vegetables | Posted: Thu Apr 05, 2007 2:53 am

My amaryllis are almost open, I only have 2 different varieties. One is a double white and red, the other solid red. I have single, low growing red cannas blooming, my clematis has 7 beautiful flowers on it. The La. irises are blooming, one kind is finished, the others at peak bloom, the copper color have not started. The pink seven sisters climbing rose is going to be in full bloom in a couple of weeks, an awesome site. The pine cone ginger is peaking through, as is the shell ginger. I may have lost the hidden lily ginger, the bulbs heaved and are mushy feeling. The butterfly ginger is really big already. The passion vine is off to a good start, I fertilized it and mixed some manure into the top third of the soil. The white hibiscus with the wine center is back with 12 shoots so far. It is also fertilized and manured. Oh, I got a new passion vine and a tea rose, both babies, but they will grow. They were given to me by a friend at church. The pink osteospermum is blooming along with the snaps, pansies, and violas. I have 2 daylily flower spikes, the big different one that I got free has a spike. The plant that wins the most blooms award, besides the Seven Sisters, is a little daisy called Becky. I had her in a pot last year, dug her out and put her in the ground in January. She has over 30 flowers on her as far as I could count, and my balsam has self seeded very freely again. Awwwww, the bed is calling my name. I am so tired.

Sounds like you have a great yard with lots of blooms. It must be a lot of work on top of work. Have a good sleep. When do you get another day off? Dooley

Your garden sounds absolutely packed with flowers Sharon. Mine is still waking up after winter but is getting more blooms every day. Have a restful night.

Thanks ladies, I can hardly wait till everything is in the ground, mulched and blooming.

Dooley I am not off till Tuesday and Wednesday. Then I will work the Thurs. and Fri. and have the weekend off. Hope the ground is dry by then.

Sounds like your yard is looking great. Wish I could see it instead of all the snow we are seeing again. Hope things are dry enough for you to work on your next days off.
