I first checked out my "New Plantings" computer photo file to see where I planted the bulbs.
Ah, ha, right next to this rock.
That means these few long green scapes (grasslike stuff) must be the missing allium.
I see no bud yet and I only see three plants. I planted 7 bulbs. They should look like this:
Yes, I was into the ugly plants last fall when I made my order. I thought these would be so interesting in a flower bouquet. I wonder if they will even flower (if you call that thing a flower). :)
Here are the poppies planted.
It looks like there were only six, which makes me very happy because I know where all six are and they all came up.
I was very worried that I had hit some of the new ones with Roundup early this spring. At $5 per root, I am so glad that I did not do that!
There is also a good-sized poppy behind the chives. It should be one of my good orange ones. If you are a long time reader, you may remember that I have "good" poppies and "bad" poppies. I am trying to get rid of the invasive "bad" orange ones. It is proving to be nearly impossible. Even the areas I hit 4 times last year with Roundup still have them almost ready to bloom! I think they will outlive me.
