Thanks for the name of that plant RJM!
Kian I have never seen those water insulators before. Interesting! I wonder if its because its drier in your part of the country?
I got Iris bulbs and lots of seeds from Brenda today
. It was like Christmas at my house!! I have planted almost all of the bulbs and will decide this weekend where to sow the seeds. She even included instructions and tips on the seeds and flowers they will produce. How sweet! Brenda you are a special lady
. I am honored to include some of your plants in my gardens and really appreciate you sending them. I'll gather seeds for you and send them as soon as they start going to seed.
Here's a few pics of where I planted some of the bulbs. I won't bore you with everywhere I put them so far
Out front in two spots at this end
One of the spots I put them in in the side garden. (I laughed because I started to clean out the brown leaves, then immediately thought of the compost pile! I left the leaves where they were until tomorrow, then I'll clean them out and take them to compost.) Yay!!
And one of the spots I put them in the back, my favorite garden!
I actually planted the bulbs in several places in all three areas, so I will have lots of additional color when they do bloom! I don't think they will bloom this year, but certainly hope they do next year. When I took Sadie for a walk a little while ago they were standing straight up and looking good!
Here's a current photo of the veggie garden too. These are my two rows of radishes, coming up really good so far. I will have lots of radishes, its a good thing I like them because my OH doesn't
. I'll have lots of them to eat!
I just love planting a seed in the dirt and then watching it grow
Yes there are grass clipping in the garden, my OH had just mowed.
Thats how my gardens are growing so far!
