First Thursday in the Garden 2012 .

LP , " We have been having very hot and sunny weather these past few weeks which has allowed the garden to flourish immensely! Here are a few pics for you to enjoy  :)  "

LP , " The plant in this planter will drape down and have many flowers all over it as the days move forward (if I don't inadvertently kill it . . . ). I'll take another picture of it later in the season so you can see how pretty it gets ."

LP , " A prettyful pink plant whose name I've forgotten ! "

LP , The plants below the small planter box all came back from last year. I planted the tulips here and there last Autumn and they have all come up as well. "

LP, "This elegant plant also survived the winter months ."

LP , " This rhododendron has buds all over it and it will soon bloom . I will post some pictures of it in bloom when the buds burst open ! "

LP, " All in all the garden is coming to life beautifully after the winter months. Only three heuchera plants didn't come back in the shade garden. It will be fun to show you more thriving plants next Thursday when your official Garden Guide Leo will be here along with his assistant Tulip. See you then!"

Have a great day!
See you soon.

  6. All your blooms are coming along really well! We don't have many blooming perennials in our little back space, it's mostly greenery.
