Happy blooming Magnolia pic, always a warming sight!
But alas my Jasmine was still not looking so good. After trimming, covering, feeding and yes even talking to, my once happy and lush Jasmine is nothing more than a twig with brown leaves. I will cut it back harder when it really starts to warm up and there is no more chance of frost. I'll also cross my fingers and pray to those gardening gods to do their magic. Here's a pic of a healthy one and the lost one, may you rest in peace!
I'll keep you posted!
My Hope Grows for next month....to see what takes and grows in this garden bed. I have scattered a number of seeds, poppies, stock, allysum and even a mixed perennial pack...etc. Its kind of like my "lets just see what happens" garden. At present it is full of Heather, lavender, lilacs, roses, peonies, aster, shasta daisies, tulips, lily's, a Japanese maple and a big old bing-cherry tree. Its a busy, sun-filled garden.
Waiting to see what sprouts up, so exciting its like waiting for Christmas!
My other hope grows will be the continued hunt for that elusive white Camellia. Still no luck, who knew it would be so hard to find? I am excited to plant these in my font and backyard to replace some lost Hydrangeas. The longer I hunt the more I want one!!
Some other happy snaps I captured during my sunshine, galoshes wearing moment, I did come across so much new life. I think my garden is going through, the what I like to call "The garden of a million buds" period. Seriously, everything is budding and just ready to burst open at any minute.
Happy Hydrangea bursts and even happier periwinkle buds.
