I didnt think of checking in here last week. Very nice bloomers Marcia. As I was taking pictures today I didnt think of taking a picture of my alliums or lamium. I just planted a golden elder today in my fenceline bed and cant wait until it looks like yours. I had to quite planting and soon go to town for a bucket of more bonemeal...Jean

A lot of people around here seem to have trouble growing the elders. It was our centennial tree and just about everyone i talk to say theirs died. Mine has done so well, but i've never done anything special. Maybe it's because it's close to the house - dh says too close. I really didn't expect it to get that big!
