The gardening has been a bit behind schedule this year, what with dodgy weather and the storage space cleaning project detailed here. But we are off to a great start.
Had good luck plant shopping (we are on a meager condo association budget) at Home Depot on a windy, cool Friday night. On Saturday the weather was fine, however, and I got started with a palette of petunia, coleus, New Guinea impatiens, and various foliage like potato vines.
On the East side of the building, last year's purple sage and hosta are on fire. Although I pruned them thoroughly last fall, the sage plants have already grown to last year's full size.
Honestly, I have not done a thing here.
Henry James wrote a book called Daisy Miller. I wish there had been a sequel about her brother, Dusty.
Hostas spring eternal.
In the eternally problematic center bed, I have pinned my hopes on two nice-looking hosta. Filled in with a few New Guinea impatiens, which we had great luck with in 2002 and indifferent luck ever since.
Let's hope for a good year!Posted at May 23, 2005 07:00 PM | az
