Front bed coming along
I've been working at getting shrubs planted and tubs of perennials put somewhere (dug up last year to make room for a patio). It's a blessing and a curse to live across the street from a greenhouse. All plants on sale today for $1-$3. I'm now filling in between all the shrubs and daylilies that went in this front bed with perennials. The pink hollyhock seeds I planted behind the Nine Bark Shrubs sprouted yesterday. Out there on the corner, I have two antique yellow rose bushes, Red dragon sedum, alliums and threw in some seeds for violas and lupines. The lupine seeds have sprouted in spite of the fact that the package said they would take 25-30 days (less than two weeks) and the violas haven't shown up yet when they should have sprouted in 5-7 days. This is the first time I've gotten lupines to sprout and I forgot to stratify them! I have the area around the stepping stones all planted up new with both ground covers and taller hummingbird flowers at the outer edges. Will post again when I get the rest of the stuff planted this afternoon. It sure is a hot one out there today!!
