Gardening


This is definitely one of the best years for daffodils we've had in a while.    


In other news, I managed to do a bit more gardening today.    First were the back yard pots.

The pots on the right are the hostas.     They're starting to bud, and I actually transplanted a couple of the larger ones into new digs today, as they were outgrowing their old pots.

The pots on the the left are my heucheras and bleeding heart.     I'm not sure they survived the winter.    The bleeding heart, at least, should be doing something by now (and I thought it was when I took these out the garage a couple weeks ago).   So I may be in the market for some new foliage plants this year.    I suppose that's not necessarily a bad thing.    It's totally different back there with the fence gone, and I'm not sure how much more light that's going to introduce into the equation.


I also got the trellis for the clematis up.     I've started some nasturtiums, blood sorrel, cilantro, arugula, and radishes directly outside.    We'll see how that goes.     Especially after we got some light hail later in the afternoon...
