The beauty of your garden never fails to inspire me. It's nice of you to provide a party for your slugs.

Wow it really going fast there! I'm amazed by the iris buds already too. I'd love to try the beer in the bowl for the slugs here, but my dog would be starting the party before the slugs ever found it :)

Everything looks bushy and green. I'd be waiting to see your Gaura flowers bloom, 'coz mine germinated a week ago and it seems to grow oh-so slowly! I guess it's some White Queen or something like that (my memory is so bad). Does yours flower pink or white?
Those slugs better know their place, 'coz your garden is too good for such nasty creatures.

I love this area, Darla. Your design, with the in-ground plantings and the potted features--love the topsy turvy ensemble. It's all very beautiful!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Betsy from Tennessee said...

You all are still SO far ahead of us--when it comes to things budding or blooming. Can't believe you have an Iris about to bloom already.

My hosta has just begun to pop up out of the ground. Yours is gorgeous.... I'm jealous!!!!! BUT--we'll catch up soon I hope.

Easter Blessings to you and yours.

Hi Darla,

I love beer and drowned slugs! As always, your ranunculus are just beautiful. I was wondering, what kind of Gaura do you grow? The white or pink flowered?

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Hi Darla. I have so enjoyed watching your Ranunculus bloom. So many colors and I just love the shape of the blooms. Your beds are getting prettier each posting. Your poppies are growing so fast. Mine are just starting to come up.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
