Pleased and Proud...
is finally happy where it gets the most sunshine.
And my birdhouse may be getting a tenant:
The ever-present tall purple bloomers in that bed are Dame's Rocket, (Hesperis matronalis), which make a ridiculous amount of seeds and self-sow everywhere. They're about the same color, grow taller, spread better and bloom longer than money plant, (Lunaria annua); therefore I highly recommend them for a cottage or wildflower garden.
The 32 Delphiniums I planted two weeks ago seem to be taking hold. I water them every few days, and although they haven't started to shoot up yet, they're surviving and growing new leaves and not dying, which is all I can ask for, at this point.
I still need to plant my recent plant sale purchases, and perhaps Sunday might be the best day for that, weather-wise. It's only supposed to get to 72ºF, whereas the rest of the week will be in the 80's. I just need to be able to extract myself in a timely fashion from the Mother's Day visit at my parents' house. And at some point I need to put in my mother's annual flower bed, which I often do on Mother's Day, but it may have to wait until next weekend. We'll see.
