May 2016 – Garden Update

Posted on May 23, 2016


The hosta is now in bud – the fern is 36″high and their fronds and leaves are kissing.  I planted some impatiens in a couple old cracked pots…after the pots completely disintegrate I’ll use them as drainage bits.

Planted 2 Ninebark trees in a pot with some companion impatiens. Praying that the slugs don’t eat everything up…they are voracious this year.

The purple flower is wild  geranium brought from England as a clipping over 50 years ago. I was gifted a clipping a few years ago.

Ferns native to everywhere I guess, but in particular the Pacific Northwest…I love them as they thrive and are so prehistoric looking…don’t worry, no plastic dinosaurs…yet…
