Ahhhhhhhhhhh, finally. The garden is well on its way to waking up at Our Eden. I’ve been strolling around taking note of all the things that need to be done. We had a particularly cold winter this go around and I’m pretty certain we lost several huge banana trees. I’m going to give it a little while longer before we plant something to take their places. I tried to divide them last year to share with a friend and I keep remembering how deep down the roots were, it’s hard for me to believe they could have frozen that far down. Fingers crossed…
The ‘Tangerine Beauty’ has more blooms on it than it’s ever sported before.
Jamie and I got several new Irises last year and I’m looking forward to enjoying the blooms this spring. ‘Autumn Tryst’ is a new addition to our garden; I’m still not certain where the autumn part comes in to the picture. It blooms in the spring and when I think of autumn I think of reds, oranges and yellows. Jamie planted it in the new bed we put across the back of the garden. We still need 12 daylilies to go in it. I want something spectacular though. We need really unusual ones that stand out when you see them. We’ve picked out some pretty good ones and I’ll be ordering them tomorrow.
This weekend our very dear friend of many years, Carol will be coming to visit. She’ll be arriving this afternoon. This weekend is the annual plant sale from the Birmingham Botanical Gardens; we always go and come back with a truck load. I hope eveyone has a fantastic weekend!
