Seed Swaps

Prepping for the summer food & flowers

21 Apr 2012
Cloudy 19°C / 66°F

So much to do today! DH worked on the irrigation system, which is now fully functional. Weeded, prepped tomato beds, transplanted some plants desperate for the ground, installed bamboo barrier for the back tomato beds, and already sketching out what next year’s flowers should look like.




We’re certainly having the right weather for gardening today! I’d love to see pictures of your hellebores. They’re starting to become one of my favorite plants.

Ooh, I have yet to photograph it! I’ll do that tomorrow, then :)

Generally, I haven’t been a huge fan of hellebores, but I happened to see a sale on them at my garden store last month. I walked right by thinking, “What a great sale, too bad I don’t love how they look. I’d certainly buy one even at full price if I found one I loved.” Then, the double mystical purple hellebore came into view – for far more than I’d ever paid for a plant (apparently it’s an uncommon variety). I sighed and bought it… and I LOVE it! Who knows, maybe I’ll become a true hellebore fan??
