I don't know their names but at least there will be something colorful to greet us when we come home or just look out the window.

Bambi be damned.
We have deer here too, in fact I had to move all my roses to the back yard, they would peel off all the leaves. I grow my vegetables in a greenhouse, because of them and the rabbits. In the front, I grow sacrificial Hostas which they decimate, but then leave the flowers alone, and I include one variety of Hosta that neither likes, for some reason. I just added 6 of them, Colossal Blue, a dark green-blueish thicker leaved plant..

Purple Salvia. I had one in my herb garden that was destroyed by the -1 below zero crapstorm a few weeks ago here in Texas. It was blooming even in the snow.

I just poked through a lovely nursery and bought a few plants. Plumbago, larkspur, and Asclepia, as well as a new to me semi topical plant...tibouchina, loaded with buds. It will depend on the winter temps here if it makes it through, but anyway, we’ll enjoy it this summer.

Upper 70s yesterday near record temperatures made it impossible to stay inside and not get out in the garden.

Went ahead and put down some fertilizer for all the perennials consisting of the 0-46-0 triple phosphate, iron granulars, and Jobes Annuals & Perennials, and Dr. Earth Flower Girl Bud and Bloom Booster.

I really wanted to buy a peony for our garden, could never have them in Florida and now moved to NC. Was shocked to see them for $100 at a nice garden center nearby. Holy moly I am outta touch with the price of peonies. They were not in bloom, just sending up shoots.

Will keep looking for a peony. Have never had one and always wanted one.

Just brought two sizable pink hellebores home today.

Also bought a pair of insulated waterproof gardening gloves and two packs of Jobe’s tree spikes. So—work ahead!

I have never had any, and I was going to buy some, but I couldn’t bring myself to pay $20. @
