A Quick Pass Through The Garden

video

The dame's rocket and irises are looking very good in the side garden too.  There is even a little wild snapdragon blooming (yellow spikes).

  1. I enjoyed the video. The Bachelor's Buttons are such a vivid blue. Very nice irises and dame's rockets too. So much color and variety in your yard. Wishing you both a very nice weekend.

  3. Beautiful. I LOVE the bachelor buttons. Self sowers?
    And the birds in the background. Love it all!

    1. Easy self sowers. I have to sacrifice some as they grow in the wrong places.

  4. Things started out so quickly and seems like things are on hold or progressing slowly now.

  5. It is amazing what a little time can do for a garden going from being barren to full blown beauty. I love seeing your gardens.

    Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

  8. I love bachelor's buttons, wish I had room for more. I've never grown Dame's Rocket.

  9. I enjoyed your tour of the flowers in your yard. I do have a few Iris that are blooming and the peony buds are swelling and most likely with be blooming before long. Everthing is way early this year. I probably could have planted the garden already but I just don't trust the Nebraska weather. It still could give us a shot of cold freezing weather so I'm really trying to be patient but it's really really hard.

    Have a great day in the yard.
    P.S. What's planted in the garbage cans? Are they really full of soil or are there spacers under the soil?

    1. There is an inverted pot in the bottom on the trash cans. But, they are heavy. I wanted something to leave out all year that was tall and wouldn't blow away. This year, they have asparagus ferns I overwintered and wave petunias.

  10. Loved the tour of part of your back yard. I love Bachelor Buttons, mine are just barely seedlings now. I plant seeds every spring, and then there are always volunteers from the previous year. Still a little early for annuals here, but I'm getting impatient to start my container plantings! :)

  11. My Batch Buttons are tall this year as well.

    I had 4 spider plants hanging on the front porch and they dropped baby’s below. They returned the following year and I added them to the Rock Garden. They return each year so they are Perennials here in GA. They keep producing with baby’s taking root nearby the mother plant...

    I like the sound of running water in the background while the Robin took its bath. I enjoy watching the birds in the birdbaths. They seem to have so much fun splashing around...

  13. It was really lovely to have the video tour of your garden, and it is looking really good too! Very uplifting to see the sunshine and hear the 'gardeny' sounds' too. Your last comment about 'having a good spring day' made Amanda look over to me as I chuckled out loud. I am supposed to be trimming a lady's big conifer hedge today, on a day off, and it is pouring with rain outside....again! Take care, and thanks again.

  15. Thanks for the video tour. I should try posting one again now that the format is different. I had done it before, but the last time I went to do it, I was going to have to give up ownership of the video, and it was going to belong to Blogger, or something like that.

    Bachelor buttons like coming up in my vegetable garden, but I seem to have trouble getting them to grow in the front yard.
