March Week 2 -Pictures!

Hi Lovelies,

Let’s talk plants!

Look at the color of this anemone! I’ve never seen a variety that looks like this. Perhaps there’s some variation in one of the varieties that I did plant? My best guess is that this bloom came from the variety “Black Eyed Beauty” or possibly another kind. I guess we can thank genetics for random variations? I’m interested to see whether or not other blooms from this same plant also look like this or if the other blooms will show as true to the variety planted. Regardless, I’m not mad about getting this random beauty, even if it wasn’t planned. It’s adorable. I hope that made sense.

The hyacinths seem to have started to bloom overnight. Just yesterday, they were sitting in a big puddle of water. I’m really glad that it drained away before it did too much damage.

Aw, I love daffodils.

Baby’s Breath and Candytuft have both started to germinate. No milk jugs or winter sowing here – I just put the tray out in the yard and hoped for the best. Glad to see that they’re growing.

Lavatera is up. Now, I’m waiting patiently for the feverfew.

The hardy annuals are starting to get taller. Here are some larkspur surrounded by weeds.

Even the shirley poppies have put on quite a bit of size. Hopefully, I’ll have bigger blooms this year!

I can’t use these scilla in arrangements, but they sure are cute.

You’ve got to look really closely, but the flowering tobacco is in there somewhere!

The statice don’t seem to like winter sowing at all. However, I’ve never been successful with statice before so, it’s progress – at least.

That’s right. Today’s the 14th. Looks like Godetia really likes this weather.

The container sweet peas are about ready to plant in the ground. Just waiting for the dirt to dry out now.

Looks like this bee found the perfect place to sleep for the night. 🙂

Is it just me, or did the snapdragons suddenly get huge?

Remember when I used the auger to plant some sweet peas? Here’s one!

Chantilly Snapdragons – why did I buy so many snapdragons?

I’ve even started to plant in little water bottles. Is there such a thing as too much winter sowing?

      1. well, with snapdragons, if you run out of room in your yard, consider doing some ‘guerrilla gardening’ & plant some around the neighborhood boulevards… (They’re deer resistant!) AND They even survive in gravel parking lots! It might spark other folk to do a little gardening themselves, or just smile & enjoy a flower – – And that’s pretty cool, too.

    1. Yes, they stay outside. I planted seeds of flowers that will be okay with some frost. If it gets cold, I close the containers. The weather this year has been very warm, so all of the containers are open. Hope that helps!

      1. Yes! I had it growing like a weed in my old house, it’s such a great filler of spaces, but I somehow forgot about it and haven’t sen it in the garden centres. Right, I’m on a mission!
