Picked up two hollyhocks at the grocery store for $2 each. The last ones I bought were obtained from a nursery and had/got rust. If these get rust, then I won't be out of big bucks.

I priced them today at Lowe’s and they we about $35. I decided to try to grow a few from cuttings instead.

I made the trek to a native nursery and bought 22 plants, I have 5 in the ground and plan to have the rest in by Mother’s Day.

I planted the coral honeysuckle vine, 3 Chapman goldenrod and two native poinsettias/painted leaf.

Coral honeysuckle and the native poinsettia

I haven't gone out for perennials yet this year but the other day I spotted some bright blue bell flowers in the nearby woods. Not knowing if someone owns that vacant land or if it just belongs to the town or ??? I made an excursion today with my dog. Dog stood guard and I pretended to be picking up dog poop but really I snagged one bluebell plant.

I LOVE bluebells. This is a wood hyacinth and it was only two bulbs with lots of roots. I planted it and watered it well. Hope it will take root and come back next spring. There were a lot of them in the woods, crowded actually, so I don't feel too guilty taking one. Next week will be the big trip to the perennial farm.
