Garden gaeity

Sunday was beautiful and I spent almost all of it outside... and have the sunburn to prove it! But the little pain will be worth it when things start blooming
These three pots con
And Ranunculus (or Persian Buttercup).

These bulbs all came from the dollar store. They are in pots (also from the dollar store) because they won't survive the winter here. But if I pull the bulbs in the fall I can store them until next year.

In the new garden I added a couple Pink Star Gazer Lilies
As well as some black Lilies. The black Lilies were bought on a recent trip to Home Depot. It was the last bag and they were already sprouting, so I put them in the ground right away. They've only been in there for a few days, but one of them is definitely and over achiever!
It's already got buds!

I also tossed in a handful of Anemones.

In the Butterfly garden, I pulled up the dead Milkweed (it just wasn't coming back)
In it's place, I planted some mixed Crocosmia bulbs.

So while I wait for all that... I'm enjoying my red Columbine
 And the prettiest little Bleeding Heart!

Hi Valerie, your garden is going to be so lovely! You are a bit ahead of us as I see my neighbours bleeding hearts aren't flowering yet.
Must check our dollar store to see what bulbs they have!
Take care.

I love what you have planned in the garden! In no time you will be enjoying the abundance of flowers!

Pretty, pretty, pretty. Don't think I've ever seen/heard of the Persian Buttercups. And I have not seen a single Columbine yet - usually they are up and blooming by now...

So many beautiful choices. I've not had luck with gladiolas in containers though. But I plant them in my garden every year.
Enjoy your week,

Your love of gardening is so evident in your posts. I saw an anemone in a garden yard last week. IT was gorgeous. We just planted our first clematis and gave it a YARN guide to get it growing up the lattice nearby
