It rained all weekend. Since I was out of town all weekend, it was perfect! The garden got some much needed moisture. After work today I went out to see what new blooms I had.
I was surprised to find quite a few that are blooming 3 weeks earlier than last year.
I love this white with black markings poppy called 'Royal Wedding'.
This white bloom is an heirloom plant from my mother-in-law who got it from her parent's farm when she was first married. She is now 83 years old. So this lovely fragrant flower came from an original plant that is well over half a century old!
I may have mentioned that I planted my aqua milk cans with Sedum Autumn Joy. I have tons of it, so I just dug up a few and stuck them in plastic pots that would fit inside the milk cans.
SAJ is the easiest plant I have to grow. It does not need much water, so it's perfect for the lazy gardener I have become. :) It is also most cost effective and who does not want to save a few bucks these days?
My garden is all pastel right now. I was thrilled to see that the lupine I moved last year gave me one bloom.
The last new flower I found was this magenta spiderwort. I like spiderwort, but it tends to overtake an area, so I am always removing huge chunks from my gardens.
I hope to get around to visiting all of your blogs soon. When I am out of town all weekend and working all week, it's tough to maintain my garden and visit blogs! I really need a few more hours in my day.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
