What’s Up

It’s a really great morning to walk around and see what I have blooming. This doesn’t look like much now but they are the planters beside my front door. There are 5 different plants in the boxes and when they get going they should be very pretty. Orange, white, blue, red and green and lime green. I have seen improvement since they were planted.

The catmint is always a buzz with activity. Cats, bees, butterflys and hummingbirds all visit it. This plant is right off my front porch. I was sitting there with a pink shirt on and after the hummingbird finished at the catmint he flew up to me, so close I could hear his wings. He must have decided I had nothing to give him and flew off.

A different coral bell, bought at the same time. It’s growing but maybe the species isn’t as big as the other.

Whoa! Huge weed alert in the other catmint! Those are on the agenda for next week.

Clematis, so glad to see that it is growing and producing. Beautiful dark color.

Every year I plant my spent Easter Lilys and they are coming up. The one on the right is from this year.

This Dogwood, I had decided that it didn’t make it. I bought a replacement tree and was about ready to pull it out of the ground and it finally had sprouts in the spring. The bottom is doing better than the top but we will see what it does.

I have heard it takes awhile for these to get going.

These are going to be a profusion of yellow flowers soon.

This is Lily’s spot to lay during the day. You can walk by and her head will pop up.

That’s where I found her, then she decided to come with me. She is my walking partner. Well that’s all I have for now…thanks for stopping.
