Perfect Diggin' Weather

The temperature rose to 80 degrees. The sky was bright and the wind was light. Garden, let's get started!
This is the start of the 6th year for my garden and I have to make a few lot of changes. We were in serious danger of having an all phlox garden, so I dug up and composted about 50 plants, no exaggeration. They reseed willy nilly and I am nowhere near ridding my beds of these upstarts.
June of last year
The thing about having a blog is the record of what grew well and what failed again and again. I am never going to get Blanket flowers to grow... as much as I love them. But I am great with bleeding hearts, monarda, and celandine poppies. Larkspur are also all over the garden, in the beds and in the mulch. I expect to see upstarts of cleome too. Since the phlox got into my iris bed, I took advantage and split the tubers, as well as ripping up the invaders.
I'll be moving two big rose bushes from the front to the back and transplanting some hydrangea in pots to the front garden. I look forward to picking lots of these.
They say April is the cruelest month and I tend to agree. One wants to plant things too early and there is always a stinkin' frost towards the end of the month. I have learned my lesson. Nothing new is going in but new dirt.


  1. Beautiful flowers in bright colours...just like your quilts!

  2. I can see the bright colors from your quilts reflected in your garden, it must be a big garden, good luck with your spring planting.
    We are going into Autumn here in NZ and soon will be seeing the delightful change in colours on the trees .I love autumn. Thanks for sharing your garden.
