Our gardens i May!
I donÂt have any of my recent pictures downloaded, but IÂm gonna start this thread anyway!
Since IÂve been digging things up for the swap, IÂve also been digging and transplanting some thingsÂmost of which I had planned to do last year! By digging up two of the big mums and the two big ornamental oreganos, IÂve spread things out someÂand made room to put some new things in! I potted and saved starts of both of the oreganos and the one mum to put back in somewhere, but theyÂll obviously be much smaller plantsÂfor this year at least. I got my ÂBeckyÂ shasta daisy dug up today and replanted a chunk to get a new startÂthe center of the original plant had died out, so itÂll look nicer again now. And I have a chunk laying out in the yard that IÂm gonna put in a different place tomorrow, so IÂll have 2 now. I really do like ÂBeckyÂ! And I moved my purple coneflower and my golden sage, and did some major soil improvement. My golden sage was getting kind of feeble looking and I'm hoping this will give it a whole new life!
My spring perennials are all bloomingÂrockcress, creeping phlox, pasque flower, creeping wallflower, forget-me-nots, violas, candytuft, etc. And I already have blue flax blooming, and the Iceland poppies I winter sowed last yearÂthank you for the seed StevationÂare blooming, only one color so far, but itÂs a pretty light golden orange color. I think all the Iceland poppy colors are pretty! There are several crowns, so itÂll be interesting to see what, if any, other colors I get. IÂm gonna start more seedÂwhen I have time!
There are other things blooming already too, but I canÂt remember what right nowÂand itÂs dark out! All my bulbs except the grape hyacinths are pretty much done blooming.
I am SO happy with the perennials so far this year! IÂll be back to post pictures!
