What a beautiful day! Almost 70 degrees... as if it were some cosmic April fool's joke.
So what did I do with this beautiful day? Why played in the gardens, of course. After donning my garden shoes (I know, nasty, right?), I thought that maybe it's time to trade them in for something more durable, maybe even waterproof. But then again, there is comfort in the familiar. And why would I want to spend money on new garden shoes when I can spend it on new garden PLANTS!
So after cleaning all the debris and leaves from the perennial beds, I hopped on to the Bluestones Perennials website and put a few more must have hostas in my cart. Here's what I chose:
They were on sale... my common defense. How many hostas can a girl have? Turns out, not enough.
On a side note, here's what's peeking up from the earth these days:
Sedum - several varieties
Bee Balm (MMMM... how I missed that smell all winter!)
Perennial Bachelor Button
Daylilies - several varieties
Chives (and I made potato salad today JUST so I could have something to add chives to!)
There was probably more, but this is the best my memory serves me at almost midnight after a very, very busy day. This full body exhaustion is just more proof that the 2012 garden season is off to a wonderful, early start!
