Gardeny Things 2011

We’ve been working hard on the garden this year.


I don’t know what sort of mushrooms these are, so I won’t be eating them.  But they are cute, aren’t they?

Mushrooms Also

Then there is the hosta up front.  Hopefully the deer don’t read my blog.  I’ve got a giant hosta behind several medium sized hosta.  The giant one will be 3′ x 3′ when it’s fully grown!


My white bleeding hearts are wonderous.  They make me happy.

Then there are the Anemones in the front, 2 1/2 white anemones.  Hopefully they will be three again soon.


The Clematis in the front yard is bloomy.

Clematis - dark pink

I don’t know the name of this clematis.  I just planted a new one in the backyard.  When I get it settled in with it’s hardware I’ll get a picture.  It’s a montana Rubens.  Next I want a yellow one and a blue one.  Just so you know, internets.

Dianthus & Two Shastas

A couple years ago, all I wanted were daisies.  Lots of daisies.  So far I have two.  One is a double and the other is a single.  Happiness.  And that dianthus?  Lovely.

Say hello to my little friend!

Just a preview of things to come in the next week or two.


Tis the season for azaleas.  My new everblooming azalea isn’t blooming yet. 😦 When it does, I’ll post a picture.

Now, I leave you with my girlsenberry blossoms.

Other people call them boysenberries, but they are my bushes now.  Thank you.

    Wow! beautiful! You are SO ahead of me in gardeny goodness. My plantings are just beginning to wake up. I’m a little envious. But…if I find myself fretting about it too much?…I’ll just make myself a big pitcher of your yummy-sounding Gin and Watermelon Agua Fresca. Very tasty sounding…and capable of inducing garden-envy specific amnesia, I’m guessing.
