I divided a clump of rush last year (Juncus patens) and tucked the divisions in here and there. It looks esp. good next to the bird bath since moisture-loving rushes evoke a sense of water.
I got just what I wanted when I planted the tree fern. The dappled light around here stops me in my tracks when I pass this corner during certain times of day. A whole garden area of this would be great. Sigh... Maybe some day.
You all have such roomy gardens, you can take pictures and pictures and never repeat. I have to get on my hands and knees to find new views.
If I had endless cash flows, I would buy a lot more tumbled blue glass to top dress all the garden containers with.
I never see any bugs on these little Phacelias whose specific name I cannot recall at the moment, but I'm just going to assume bugs are visiting them anyway. I like to think most my garden's flowers are bug-friendly.
I snagged two 4-inch pots of Brachycome iberidifolia in the clearance section of my nursery. They were looking pretty ragged, but nothing a dunk in fertilizer and some cutting back couldn't take care of.
We planted out tomatoes a couple weeks ago, and they're off to a good start. I'm pinching off suckers and flowers for now, while the young stems grow.
The strawberries have not attracted any mice yet, and neither has the squash. Well, that's very exciting. I hope it lasts.
I shouldn't complain. My garden is practically mouse habitat.
Clematis seem to take so long to settle in. Better to buy a big pot than save money and wait three years for a 4" pot to grow up?
