After the looooooonnnnnnnggggg Winter we just made it through, I am happy to finally see colors (other than brown) in my garden!
Bill’s irises survived being moved and shoved in the ground late last fall. They are shorter than usual, but they are still beautiful!
Timmy, our one-eyed metal cat, keeps an eye out on the corner.
We planted three peony plants.. two red and one yellow.. the perfect color combination!
The yellow is a new variety from Itoh, and is a cross between a standard peony and a tree peony. It is supposed to be more sturdy than the standard garden peony. So far, so good. And the flower is huge and beautiful!
It will provide some good color in an area that we are “rebuilding”.
The false indigo is looking pretty good, too.
It has an almost sweet-pea type flower.
The poppies are filling in and look like they should bloom at any moment!
We have used pots to add some color
The rhubarb we planted last year didn’t seem to mind the transplant
The flowers are looking nice, although it means my minimal harvesting is done.
In case you were worried I had no supervision while taking these pictures, have no fear….
I think he was trying to figure out why I wasn’t giving him a worm.
