We have had some rain the past few day. I went outside this morning and was amazed at what has popped up in the past few days.
I know have 3 of the 6 various types of daffodils blooming. This one is a really small bloom, about the size of a quarter.
This is the Campernelle narcissus
and the smaller daffodil again. The rain had beat them down, so I had to hold them up to take the photos
Here are a few things that have popped up in the past few days:
African Daisy, Hydrangea, Irises, Sapphire Sage, Gladiola, & Phlox
The African Daisy seemed to have come up from no where! I swear it wasn't there last weekend! It is loaded with blooms!
Bee Balm (Monarda) is also popping up everywhere
I noticed about 5 or 6 irises that had buds on them!!! I can't wait for them to bloom, of course I get excited about any bloom!
I dug up all of my irises this past fall, divided them and replanted. I literally set the roots in the dirt, and lightly covered them, and left 90% of the bulb exposed. Irises don't like to be buried deep. In the past I have tried not to bury them deep....but apparently they still thought it was too deep! They must like only the roots in the ground....because most of them have buds on them now.
A week and a half after planting seeds....we have seedlings!!!! There are several Zinnia sprouting up. The white zinnias were from Stephanie at Steph's Green Space.
Dwarf Morning Glories came from Lona at A Hocking Hills garden! They are doing great
And last but not least....my heirloom hibiscus seeds. I just started collecting seeds from them this year, so I wasn't sure how they would do, but they are doing well!
