Garden

I hit upon a brilliant idea earlier in the week. Rather than fight the crowds at Broadway Gardens over the holiday weekend, I went after work today. Full Memorial Day weekend selection before the hoards have a chance to descend. It was a little busy, but I easily got parking, and had no trouble getting a wagon and making my leisurely way through the grounds. I'm so going to have to remember this for the future.

I was pretty shade oriented this trip. I replaced my heuchera with a lovely purple shaded one, to be different this time. I also got a Bruneria, an Astible, and a foliage begonia, as well as my customary impatiens and coleus.

For the sunny garden, I kept it simple this year, and just got some marigolds and some annual salvia. I also got some basil, parsley and sage, and will do my best to not neglect those this year, so I can actually get some use out of them. We'll see how well that goes.

All and all, it was a very satisfying trip. No I just need to find the time to get them all planted. That should be interesting, with the two jam packed weekends I have coming...
