It has taken some time but my holyhocks have finally produced blooms.
For some reason I thought they were going to be dark purple but these have more of a tequila sunrise quality.
In any case they add a little something to the space beside the back porch.
I have also planted another one this year in behind this one. This label says it will be pink, purple, or yellow so we will wait an see.
It seems that the seed pods I collected from this year’s morning glories were safe from last month’s frost and have safely gone to seed for next year.
Now to put them somewhere I won’t forget about them.
Well so far so good is the status update on my annuals at the schoolhouse.
The boxes of geraniums and bacopa seem to not only manage sporadic watering but thrive as a result. The petunias are a little less well off but not so bad as it could be. Not that it is an annual but it appears the nearby hosta has gone nuts in its new locale.
This basket seems to be doing very well. I guess I made the right choices this year.
Garlic will be my challenge for next fall but what will I plant this spring? I’ll be flipping through the books in the next few days trying to get some inspiration. I’ve been generally uninspiring to do much these last few weeks so hopefully this will kickstart my brain.
