Good news for the shooting star hydrangea..so far, so good for recovery from the grocery store bargain basket. I have my fingers crossed and am babying it. It was pretty beat up, but new growth means I am doing something right. I would love to see it bloom this summer. The flowers look like this. It is not winter hardy here so has to come in.

cabin fever

grown from one leaf taken from a friend's plant, this voilet has been blooming for 3 months. My friend's died, so I told her I would grow her one from one leaf or she could have any of the 5 that are in the pot. It needs to be divided anyway. Anyone want one? IT's a nice plant.
rose in background, another bargain basket victim, one dollar, now budding all new growth. It cried "water..water..I need water", There should be a plant abuse truck. Hyia wanted a rose, so I told her she could rescue this onel
.

OUtside the birds are desperate. I will make sure to plant many more sunflowers this year and throw in some native food plants too.

My new neighbors. Indigo buntings. As far as I can tell I have 2 pair to go with the gold finches, strawberry finches, all the regulars, nuthatch, chickadee, downy woodpeckers, cardinals, redwing black birds, brewer blackbirds, and yellow bellied woodpecker who will be on his way to Canada soon. i have cut them way back in seed, putting out only a couple handfuls 3 times a day.





I wish they were better photos but if I try to stay outside, even being very still, they don't come like they do we watch outside. By putting the seed out at regular times, they know it will be there. I think the rest of the time they should be looking for bugs and native food. There is creek down at the bottom, but it is full of fertilizer and pesticide from the golf course, so i put out fresh clean water too.

Wet and shiny and new. Evertying is loaded with blooms so my favorite part is coming when my garden goes off like slow motion fireworks. Some should start opening today and if I have done it right, I should have flowers to fall.

Good Morning and hello from an old friend. My deceased SO dug these up for me way out in the boonies when I saw them growing in an abandoned field. So I can't help but feel he is telling me Hello when I see them bloom. I miss him dearly, he has been gone 10 years, and these flowers have moved with me three times.







soon there will be a border of primrose. Cindy told me I didn't want it..that it would take over..but I like things that take over, i just remove them from where i odn't need them, they are tuff, drought resisitant (my ultimate favorite trait) and make billowy pink borders that bloom and bloom. I didn't get to put in the natives that I wanted to, but the natives that i put in last year are doing well. I wanted some coleus but due to Pepper's vet bill, there will be none of that this year. Still hoping to trade for a pickup load of mulch.

The white blooms are so beautiful. I'm glad they come up for you wherever you live.
