We are having a couple of blustery days but warming temperatures are coming next week. Good Friday is the day for setting out tender plants so next week the tomatoes will be planted.
The Birmingham Botanical Gardens had the Spring Plant Sale this week. Beautiful plants were available. I volunteered in the trees and shrubs section. There were beautiful native azaleas, hydrangeas, an ample variety of ferns and many others. This spring there seems to be a sense of expectancy.
Here is my picutres for the week.
First is this beautiful red azalea. This is the Indica type. I do not know the cultivar.
Number 2 are these beautiful bluebells. I like the way they clump.
Found another project that will need attention. This shed has some weather damaged wood that will need replacing.
This Creeping Jenny is alive and well. It is also called moneywort because of the small coin like leaves. It makes an excellent shade area ground cover. Soon, it will be spilling over the edge of the container.
Next is this striking Heucherella. It is related to the Tiarellas also known as foamflower. This is a favorite shade plant.
Finally, we are making progress on our paver project. The base is ready and we will be laying the bricks tomorrow.
Don’t forget the Propagator
