Everything has Popped

Everything has popped.  What a difference two weeks make.  Here it is the last days of May and this past week you would swear it was July or August.

I have Daylilies blooming.  Aztec Gold is early but not that early, it's not supposed to bloom till the end of June


The Hosta are up.

Almost fully out. 
Remember, I spaced them out last year?
 I think they will be good for a few

The bog garden is looking good, a bit on the dry side, not very boggy, but nothing is this spring.  I do think a few too many holes were punched in the plastic, but it is a bit moister than the rest of the garden.

In the lower part of the display gardens, I had lost just about all my Euphorbia (have no idea why), and the Saponaria (Bouncing Bet), which I love, were bouncing around a bit too much.  This year they were out.  Will have to find a new spot for them.  Anyway, I moved the Helenium (Helen's Flower, Sneezeweed, Swamp Sunflower) into the centre of this area around the second week in May.  Well since it hasn't rained here much the month of May, you can probably tell that they didn't like it.

But a nice coat of compost and a little rain this past day and they are smiling.


Now I have to get the Woolly Thyme path to smile.
