All I need is a mini rose and to put out the hummingbird feeder
Raspberry, cherry tomato, dahlias, cape daisy
New clematis (and four o'clock seeds)
Waiting for hummingbird feeder
Moved the birdfeeder over here, honeysuckle
growing well but no four o'clock seeds sprouted
Still need to weed. Sigh.
Planted the morning glory that was sad inside
Is this enough wire? Only time will tell...
Pansies, violas, johnny-jump-ups
Alyssum, waiting for rose, waiting for black-eyed susan vine to sprout
Basil and chives, parsley
Mint in the corner. You can be invasive any time now...
Polka dot plants, a green thing that hasn't died, and seeds waiting to sprout
Sara bought me a pretty
Still waiting for these seeds to sprout

My one tulip, snapped a picture only a few
minutes before the rabbits destroyed it, like
all my other tulips. *Sob*
The raspberry is sprouting. Will it live for the
requisite two years to bear fruit? Only time
Cherry tomato, just for Sara. Ok, I will eat them
too, but planted mainly for Sara.
Only the parsley (for another neighbor) is done
Mint, hiding in the corner! Squirrels have
already dug into it twice. Sigh.
A nice little crop of anemones - only one of
the hyacinths ever bloomed. Oh well. Next year.
I've planted more morning glory seeds here.
The middle garden - the destruction of tulips.
Need to do some serious weeding in the far third
but it's difficult to reach the corner. The daffodils
came up ok.
One of my calla lilies is coming back.
The other seems dead forever, but you never know...
The honeysuckle was transplanted happily (unless
this is the clematis, but I think it's the honeysuckle)
There are four o'clock seeds planted as well.
The clematis (unless it's really honeysuckle) is
not very happy about being transplanted. It
got kind of squished. There are four o'clock
seeds here too.
The hummingbird feeder will hang here
Hmm, can't really tell if I weeded or not
The leaves look messy, but I have no way of
removing them - I guess they're good for the dirt
That's what I'm going with anyways
Happy anemones, only nibbled a little
Black-eyed Susan vine is planted in the far pot
The others are just covered to keep the
squirrels from digging out the dirt until I get
the rest of the plants
Raspberry still alive!
Tomato still alive!
I transplanted the dahlias and they're very...
droopy. Hopefully they'll perk up after some
water and a few days of sun. These are the fall-
One big stem broke when I transplanted them )-:
Two pots of zinnia seeds planted!

Saturday, April 16, 2016
After I carefully planted everything inside, because it was SNOWING, the weather promptly shot up to the 70s. I can't win.
Pots in the parking lot. The 4 back by the picnic bench will be zinnias, the small green one in the corner will be daisies, the two big orange pots are for dahlias, the ones wrapped in wire are for tomatoes and raspberries. I've planted the raspberry....stick? and hope it grows! But nothing else is planted yet.
Pots by the door - back two are for violas, dark turquoise is for roses, the one by the trellis for black-eyed susan vine, the small purple pot is for parsley (i don't eat it, but my elderly neighbor does) and the pot with something green is for basil and chives. the chives came back from last year!
My reticulata irises did not last long. I'm not sure if they're meant to be ephemeral or if they couldn't take the sudden bouts of snow. There are a few other things sprouting - the far corner is disappointingly empty.
But I found an anemone!
And another one!
These would be hyacinths if I had more sunlight. Mutated hyacinths?
