Since retiring my yard has had its ups and downs....just like me I have spent some time this spring trying to lessen the impact the buttercups are trying to make. Think I tired out my right weeding thumb so headed out for a five day camping trip. Here’s what I found when I got back. The trilliums had finished blooming and the hostas had jumped out of the ground in the 80+ F weather. More sun, foxgloves beginning to create their flower stalks and now I can see the neighbors house again (after a decade). Columbine hybrids scattered about in blue and violet. A hybrid clematis blooming (self sown seed from I believe the jackamini and white double). The center is much darker than last year, its first blooming cycle. A few allium bulbs survived and rebloomed this year. A variegated brunnea is almost finished blooming Lots of foxgloves getting ready to bloom. They are native and self sow everywhere. Then there is a wild imported hyacinth, sweet woodruff and a variety of woodlands What’s happening in your garden?
