More Plants!!



End-of-the-season specials meant I just had to go to the Plant Shop and see what I could find. Of course I found several and came home to look where I could find a spot that was empty. I should say right away that most of our large, older lot has been turned into flowerbeds and finding a spot to dig where no bulbs lie isn't easy. So most of the new plants went into pots. 



Sweet Pansies are always a welcome addition.


These Mums are actually more rusty coloured than they appear here.


This pot should look quite lovely filled with orange Tulips

  1. Sounds like a fun afternoon and pansies always look so cheerful!

    1. Yes, pansies are great and with a bit of luck they may overwinter here, depending on how cold it will be this year. Last year all my pansies made it through and bloomed until later summer when they died of sheer exhaustion.

  2. Looks like you've got a lot more color going on in your garden than we have in Southern Manitoba where the occasional snowflakes are gently reminding us that our prairie winter is on its way. I wonder if your mums overwinter in their pots or if you protect them with a wrap of some sort.

    1. The Mums will most probably die off in a month or so. In order to have Mums that make it through the winter we have to get them in Spring and let them get established. Have you had a killing frost yet?
