Thanks to the sunflower seeds I’ve been feeding the birds with there are little sunflower plants popping up here and there on the newly planted lawn bits. I keep moving them to more suiting spots. :)
The romantic pink/white border is a work in progress, no doubt, but I quite like it so far. Next year there will be loads more foxgloves and more peonies which will automatically make it great.
Put some ferns in there, and Solomon’s seal, white sage, more silver ragwort, white foxgloves, lily of the valley, wormwood, nicotiana, coleus, lamb’s ear, lilies, sea holly and some other junk. Moved the verbena to another spot as it was ruining the colour scheme with it’s purpleness. Hoping the baby’s breath will come up this year, it looks like it will, unless what I think is it is actually something else…
So yeah there’s loads. I hope everything will flourish!
Got these great planters + 2 more like them for about $1.50 each at a sale. I quite like them.
Geranium, ivy, passionflower.
Oh, this post was supposed to go here. Ah well.
I found the camera charger! I love foxgloves! All is well! I’ve started indoctrinating my niece into the world of glorious dangerous plants, and she is duly impressed with these babies.
The community compost is a goldmine! I’ve found so many plants and pots in there. Yesterday in the dead of night I sneaked home with the bundle of perfectly healthy peonies I mentioned in another post, what I *think* is a hydrangea and no less than 10 yellow pansies. Score! I have so many peonies now!
From my mum’s friend’s garden the other day I got mint, loads of lemon balm, garlic chives, aquilegia, orpine, ivy, geraniums and some unidentified little pink flowers from bulbs. Going back for even more peonies, more aquilegia, roses, and a tiny little bleeding heart! And there’s probably more stuff I didn’t notice last time.
Man, I love finding free stuff that would go to waste if I didn’t lay my thieving little hands on them. Probably my favourite thing.
Going to do a super thorough search for my camera charger tonight… Time for some pictures!
