Summer In The Jungle

The garden is coming along swimmingly! I’m really happy with the way everything is maturing and kind of weaving into each other.

As the garden grows

Iris bucharica. I love the juno iris as a whole and because this is one of the easiest it's also one of my favorite

image

Narcissus 'Avalon'

Have I ever shown an over view of the entire back garden?

image

Apparently I really like yellow and pink

Spring continues

Is it just me or does Acanthus spinosus look like a monster coming out of the ground?

image

Well that was short lived

image

Happy Spring? Yes, this picture was taken today. We got about four to six inches of very wet snow.

What’s in bloom?

image

The first plant to bloom in our garden this year is…Iris ‘Katherine Hodgkin’! I just love the greenish yellow tones with blue stripes and yellow throats. Seriously this thing is like botanical perfection to me. Am I crazy?

Springing forth

Things are slowly but surely popping up in the yard. Turns out my scallions from last year over overwintered without a problem…I wonder if they’re still any good.

The buds on the peach are swelling,I hope we avoid any late frost,I really want peaches!!!!!

Have any of you had issues with rabbits eating your azaleas? They destroyed my two Rhododendron ‘Golden Lights’this winter. I’m not pleased.

I still don’t have anything blooming addy home but I’ll leave you with this lovely little aconite from work

image

I’m so neglectful…

…And still all you get is this picture of a witch hazel because I’ve been so busy remodelling the house, prepping for classes, doing tv segments, and living luge in general that sometimes I forget to breathe. But spring is coming and I can’t resist showing off baby plants so I’m sure you’ll at least get a bulb or two out of me! Btw, this hazel (cultivar Jelena) is blooming in my new garden at work. She’s the first flowers we’ve had all season. Snow drops started this week too! Amazing when you think about how it was below zero last week!

Vacation!

I finally got to experience the tundra for real! I’ll actually pat about the botanical highlights when we return but for now I thought I’d leave you with th these pictures I took from the top of a mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park.

A late summer update

It’s amazing what buying a house will do to your free time/will to blog. I’m so busy that I keep forgetting to even think about posting. Well I have stone time and a new, faster phone so let’s see if we can make this at least something resembling a habit!

Spring Spring Spring Spring SPRING!!!

I’m really kind of too tired to actually post anything of any substance but everyone likes pictures, right?  Pictures!
