I went, I saw, I bought!

Ah, yes, the gardening bug bit me hard today. I acquired Bailey's new Tahitian Moon from their Easy Elegance roses line, I bought Prairie Harvest (a Buck rose) and Morden Sunset (or is it Sunrise?). Plus, I bought 4 clematis; Multi Blue, Warsaw Nike and 2 I can't remember and (!) it is too dark to go look at the tags! I also bought more creeping phlox for curbside as the neighbor dogs spent most of the winter pee'ing on them so they did't come back. Tomorrow is auction day, Sunday I garden!

I know what you mean. I went to browse since I won't have time to replace my fence and add a new bed for at least 2 weeks. I walked out with some blackjack sedum, stoplight heucherellas, a dunkled larch and a dawn redwood (for a friends yard). I have no self control.

RE: I went, I saw, I bought!

John and I went to Rice Creek Gardens yesterday and came home with: Rosa 'Honey Bee' a new rose that only they have; Rosa 'Chuckles' the one thing I was going to buy for sure; Clematis 'Violet Elizabeth'; Clematis 'Asao'; Rhododendron 'Landmark'; Sedum Voodoo; and two cactus 'Optunia Ymochila, which they have outdoors all year round.

So much for self control. At least I have space all ready for them. No need to figure out where they will go.

I haven't been anywhere yet. Had a plant sale here this weekend and will be sinking the profits into more plants. A rain garden and more natives are in the plans.
