I had an empty spot here where something didn't survive the winter so I decided to move a few lychnis coronaria.
They are in full bloom, but I think they will survive the move just fine.
It is so nice when you finally get to the point in your garden where you have extras of just about everything. When you have a big bare spot, you don't have to spend a cent -- you just go dig up 4 or 5 plants from another area. These were in the woodland area and needed to be thinned.
If they don't survive the move, it's not a big deal. I will just pull them out and move another one.
Lychnis self sows like crazy. It is another biennial so all of these little ones will not bloom until next year.
I can move them now or wait until next spring (which is probably what I will do)
This afternoon DH and I worked on staining the lattice on the deck.
It's a real pain to do. It's a solid stain which is similar to paint, but the consistency of water. We do it with a small paintbrush.
We are sick of doing it every couple of years and are considering replacing it with the newer plastic stuff that you never have to paint.
We bought some local strawberries today.
I am off to have a big bowl of strawberry shortcake.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
