|Lily of the Valley|
|Shade garden - Pulmonaria, lamium, and bleeding heart in bloom|
|Shade garden - tiarella and forget-me-nots in bloom|
|Another area of the shade garden - muscari and bleeding hearts in bloom|
The lily of the valley was transplanted from another area in our yard where it was growing for three years but never bloomed. How fun to finally see flowers! I'm not sure why it bloomed in this area and not the other, except that this area is much more shaded than where it was previously planted, so that could be part of it.
The debris in all of the photos is a result of a hailstorm here on Saturday. Out of nowhere it started hailing golf-ball sized hail! My rhubarb took a beating, as did some of the hostas that have leafed out, but otherwise, the flowers were pretty much left undisturbed.
On the vegetable garden front, this week we've planted broccoli, beans, carrots, beets, cucumbers, and tomatoes (added to our already planted potatoes, onions, and peas) at our community garden. Squash will go in this weekend. I haven't planted ANYTHING in my little salad garden at our house - not even salad greens which could have gone in several weeks ago. Maybe the weather will cooperate this weekend so I can get that taken care of and checked off of the infamous "list" that all of us gardeners have... the list that is never ending. But that's a good thing!
