One nice thing about having friends who also garden is that you get to trade perennials. This year, I have some beautiful double orange day lilies that I can pass along.
They're all packed up, and ready to be delivered today and tomorrow.
So far, I've had two different plants gifted to me this year. This is a blue geranium that I am very anxious to see in bloom. I'm not quite sure that this is where it will stay, but it can settle in there this year, while I decide if there might be a better place for it next year.
And, another friend gave me some hostas that I had a perfect place for in my shade garden.
Being able to do more gardening was one of the things that I was really looking forward to when I retired. So far, I've managed to get quite a bit done. But, I have lots more to go. I have quite a few perennials on order, that will deliver at the end of April. And, I also have the "garden from hell" to clean out. No pictures of that, because I'm too ashamed of it. I got busy last year and couldn't do much gardening at all, and, unfortunately, this one garden really, really suffered for it. I'll show you after pictures.
