    Geez more rain, so much for my wave petunias RIP . I still haven't gotten around to painting the last 3 boxes, hopefully tomorrow. I think we had 2 inches of rain yesterday., Too bad my rain barrel isn't set up . Missed the boat on that one.

    I was looking at pictures of other members clematis and it has made rethink where I am planting mine.
    I already planted one in the front yard garden that I will leave there. The other 2 I figured I wanted to enjoy them in my back yard. So will put them along my fence where they will have lots of room to climb.

    I also have a question, what do you have your clematis climbing on? For my front bed I was hoping that it will climb up the gutter pipe. Please let me know if I will need something else for it to climb on.

    This is a an update to my rose, which I was pretty sure was dead (most likely culprit is the dog peeing on it all winter!) I did as someone suggested keep cutting it back little by little and hope to see green wood. Well I did hit green wood, but it was an inch from the bottom! But while down there, I got a closer look and my rose wants to live! LOL There is another sprout coming out around the last little living stump too! So I gave it a nice dose of organic fertilizer and will see what happens. Now to protect it from the dog this time!
    Plus the only things really blooming so far are the cat mint (in the pic above) and a dianthus not shown.

    This is an update to the picture of the new bed of plants under the pine tree. I had my DS add some yellow marigolds and yellow and orange celosia, plus 2 blue lobelia for some color it was looking pretty blah.

    We've had great weather this past few weeks; the garden is coming along nicely. A few pictures to share from this morning:

    Ok.. finally got out and took a few pictures.. too bad it's an overcast day... except for the first picture, I took that one a couple of weeks ago.

    Brunnera - Jack Frost


    Short little clematis, lady's mantle, Graham Thomas rose


    Mountain laurel - Olympic Fire


    Columbine


    Dwarf scabiosa (pincushion flower)


    Everything in this pot is miniature: yew, hosta, scabiosa, can't remember the name of the last one, but it's some sort of miniature holly


    Rock rose - rabbit gnawed this down to the ground during the winter, but it persevered and said, to hell with you, bunny! I'm blooming!


    One more miniature, this time an iris

    A close-up of the clematis from the earlier picture



    That's it so far Weather's been uncooperative lately. Hopefully it warms up soon.

    Gorgeous flowers, GoJays. I find that an overcast day is better for taking pictures than an overly bright sunny one. Wished I could grow that Mountain Laurel here. I also can't get brunnera to overwinter in my garden. My clematises are just starting to bud out. Is your Lady's Mantle well-behaved? I've got it popping up everywhere.

    Actually, the Lady is very well behaved. She's lived in her little spot for the last seven or eight years, neither spreading about nor growing too large. The brunnera was just planted last summer so I was pleased to see it come back. I never know from one plant to the next what will survive my yard. I didn't think the mountain laurel would make it, it looked sickly in it's first full season, but it seems to have bounced back nicely It's got a load of buds on it. I'll take a picture of it when I get my camera back.. the other half has it today in Toronto

    Well a month of rain may finally be over, I think all the plants are in shock . I know all this rain is great after a summer of drought last year but boy it slows everything down. We(well my dad) was still putting the furnace on all last week .

    ^Patty, I hope it's sunny skies for you and that your plants recover from all the wet. Three years ago, we had a summer like that and it was my one and only time having to deal with Late Blight on my tomatoes. It's a pain having to be extra diligent looking for fungal diseases in the garden with all this rain.
