lupine

columbine and more.  at one end yard waste is going into the compost pile.  weeds and such are filling the right most bin.  and at the other end the harvest of compost is returning to the garden and filling this year’s pots.  the bin was nearly four feet high filled with compost.  now it is nearing empty.  and those mythical blooming spring flowers… the lupine is sending up a spike.  and petunias fill the pot.  seven images…

closer

eventually spring will make its way to daylily season.  still moving plants.  and expanding gardens.  and removing junk that has been hiding in the landfill for who knows how long.  old rusty pipes don’t sound like metal when the shovel hits them.  and plants don’t need that much metal in their diet.  and we are actually getting closer.  hemerocallis minor is a species daylily and it blooms about two weeks before the other daylilies.  so start your counter.  and prepare to be a little more patient.  until the daylilies are really ready.  and yes i am still finding plants to move to the evaluation bed.  six images…

obvious

it is obvious that someone is being held against their will on an extraterrestrial spaceship.  what no daylily ! ? !   spring flowers, spring flowers, and more spring flowers !  and an old time daffodil with green and yellow petals.  quick get out the said-a-gives !  six images…

steps

spring comes in steps.  not smooth every day.  some forwards and some slide back.  tomorrow warmer again.  no spring flowers today.  they bloomed – just no new pictures today.  six images from last summer…
