Here's what's happening in the perennial garden this week. This afternoon the peony opened up.
Earlier this morning the pink peony planted by a previous owner was finally about to bloom after three years.
Salvia from last year's plantings.
Red hot poker from last years plantings.
I save the pots from plants I purchase and I reuse them to plant lots of seeds. Here I've started lunaria, baptista, four o-clocks, nasturtium, two different tall sunflowers (autumn colors), aster, rudbeckia hirta (black eyed susan), gopher plant, butterfly weed, and snapdragon. Some of the seeds like aster and snapdragon are so small I hope they sprout. I am watering them with a mist. We shall see.
I've planted four pots of each seed and if all of them make it I may take them to the flea market to sell some.
Last night we sat outside and spied this lizard right near Barney. Gary picked him up on a small throw we have and placed him in the garden. This morning I saw him in the perennials. He is a slow mover. Hope he's ok. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
