More ... I Need More

A certain someone stuck in Florida for a couple more weeks tending to the man with the new knee, who is doing better than average according to the doctors, says I am not posting enough pictures of her garden.

I've been busy lately.

Now if someone was to want to pay me to stroll the garden and blog all day everyday, I am open to the notion. Like I don't blog everyday now.

The Phlox nivalis is back. I found that a few days ago and stopped to take its picture today.

I guess you could say a leisurely stroll is a good stretching exercise after a long day of work. The Euphorbia I am to tired to look up the species is looking sharp. I dug up a bunch of runners creeping into the vegetable garden and planted them on the other side of the drive by my mailbox. Now I will have matching clumps of Euphorbia at the entrance.

There are certain hazards involved in shopping for plants for clients. Things like Erysimum linifolium 'Bowles Mauve' end up coming home with me.

The forest floor is busy. You can test your native plant ID skills.

Combinations of all kinds are occurring where the Iberis is blooming.

A new deciduous azalea is open.

Oh it is way past my bedtime and company is coming tomorrow. I need to clean up all the hairballs and dead bugs in the house.

I am sure there will be time for a garden stroll. I don't know if it will be blogged.

Enjoy your Tree Peony. I made sure the caterpillars did not eat them up this year and there will be plenty of peony blooms to show.

And here come the iris.

But now I must sleep.

Hi Christopher! Bulbarella is hooked on your blog! I can't blame her ~ I love to see all the gorgeous pictures and variety of what is blooming up at Outside Clyde too. I know she is anxious to get to her beloved spot in the mountains. I hope your Dad gets the "release" soon so they can head north! Enjoy your guests and do take the time for your garden strolls daily with your camera in hand. :)

Wow. It seems that snow is but a memory now.

Good for Bulbarella giving you the what for! Get out there with the camera! We can certainly understand how she feels, looking forward each year to seeing her paradise abloom. Doesn't want to miss a single flower. Your Euphorbia did not like it here, died immediately. Maybe it could be tried again? I hear the interstate is open! After some other traveling is out of the way, you might get a visitor. :-)
ps, be prepared to wire cash. JK

I don't blame Mother for missing her garden. I would be missing it too if I was her. Such a beautiful time of year. Have fun with your company. Frances you crack me up. Have fun...

I'm glad your Dad is doing well. I know the feelings of Bulbarella.
All the pics are lovely. Take your time but do try to take that much needed stroll each day if at all possible. Camera in hand, of course.

Oh,poor Bulbarella! I know when I was in Florida I was missing my witch hazels and snowdrops, and look what she is missing now! I know exactly how she feels. Hopefully your dad will be up to traveling soon.
