I got the Hinder out and sprayed all my hosta and lilies. I will be just heartsick if they eat the Asiatic Tango lilies I planted last fall.
Speaking of the lilies, they have this white film over the buds. I don't recall any other lilies having this. Anybody know what it is? It seems like only the new Tango lilies have it.
Here's my peony almost ready to bloom. I still don't see any ants on it, which is strange.
DH bought me 2 of those metal planters at that church sale where he bought the Tonka truck. The containers already had drainage holes drilled in. I didn't have anything to plant in them and didn't feel like getting dressed to go shopping, so I walked around the yard to see what I could dig up. I decided I could part with a few marigolds from the big planters at the entrance to the deck. I have oodles of rose campion (lychnis coronaria) this year, so I dug some of that up. It has very bright magenta flowers. Whoa! This will be one bright planter. But since I am stuck with the hot pink/orange in all of my hanging baskets, I decided to embrace the color scheme.
Yesterday I brought up another table and 4 of my metal bistro chairs. Every year these chairs get painted. DH power washed them to remove the loose paint.
I thought they looked pretty artistic just the way they were. All those paint colors are the same colors as in my cushions.
So I left them as is. I planted more rose campion and placed it on the floor. It's all droopy because it likes to sulk a day or two after I yank it from the ground. I also have some Elephant's Ear in the same pot. I think the big leaves will look nice here.
Well, that's all I have time for because I have to shower and get to work.
