The sun has been so bright here, the lighting in the photos? not so great..
Hey Grace, over at http://www.gracepete.com the Lupine is having a growth spurt.
New purchase: Grace Ward Lithodora-Carrasquilla azul Grace Ward-Lithodora diffusa 'Grace Ward'.... dadgum, how many names does she need? The tag reads: Trailing Perennial, morning sunlight only, semi-moist, bloom time early spring, medium growth rate, 6" x 12", cold hardiness: -10 to -20..
Brilliant blue flowers in early spring, can be used as a groundcover, lovely spilling over walls, excellent for rock gardens.
New purchase: Georgia Blue Speedwell, Veronica peduncularis "Georgia Blue' . The tag reads: Trailing perennial, full sun, semi-moist, fast growth rate, 12" x 12", cold hardiness -20 to -30
I have been hanging onto this bottomless container for over a year now. I loosened the soil on the ground, placed the container over that soil and planted the Speedwell inside...it just looks like it's in the container, well, I mean it is, it just can't be picked up and moved so easily.
My husband and I both rescued plants through the winter...we have quite a few Petunias and so far they are all red...here is one pail of them.
The Calibrachoa is filling in nicely.
This ice plant stayed outside in my garden mailbox all winter...I just new it was a goner. I started giving it a little water and shabaam! It's greening up.
Here is my Creeping Jenny Chair, Jenny will cascade over the sides of the chair making a skirt like display while the Dracaena Spikes add a little interest with height and the Clematis Vine fills out the back rest.
New Purchase: Cuphea llavea "Vienco", the tag reads: Sun or part sun, moist well drained soil, blooms late spring through fall, 12" tall...haven't you heard this called, Bat Face?
I paired it with yellow Petunias, Dracaena Spiky and Blue Fescue...should make an interesting combination in the months to come.
Today I am thankful for, actually right now, I can't choose just one thing. I am thankful for A LOT of things this morning.
