I've completed my spring shopping; at Edward's Nursery as usual. Just walking in is such a delight. Everything is blooming and lovely and smelling heavenly. Just as spring should.
Why oh why don't I have any hyacinths planted??? I can't figure it out, especially after I smelled these beauties. What a great scent!
Some of these are in my future, that's for sure.
A great water feature.
I really did have a list. Here it is:
1. Hellebore - Mardi Gras Double and/or Corsican (Have you seen Catherine's?)
2. Campanula persicifolia - Peach Leaved Bellflower (I was so envious of everyone's last year.)
3. Echinacea - something bright
And then I saw these;
I think Loree at Danger Garden is rubbing off on me because five of these plants landed in my cart, including an aloe - 'Pink Blush' and Sedeveria 'Jet Beads'.
I managed to get beyond the succulents and into the perennial area where I saw the Hellebores. Not the ones on my list but I did pick up Jade Tiger and Peppermint Ice.
The campanula persicifolias looked great and I snagged five of them. I couldn't resist the Myosotis sylvatica ‘Victoria Blue’ because, well, you know.
And for my Echinacea I chose 'Firebird', definitely fitting the "something bright" category.
Not a bad trip.
I'm not sure what I'll do with the succulents. We have a hot, dry spot in the back garden. I'm thinking I might pot them up, singly or together, I haven't decided yet, and place them back there.
Have you done your spring shopping? Anything new in your cart?
