2010 St. Aubins Garden


I picked a mix of colors, I don't have a 'color scheme'.

Oh, I will never pass up an offer for seeds - Thanks! I could trade cosmos seeds (pinks and yellows). When it gets later in the year lets set up a swap

Peace
LFW

OK, I tried some of the Lupine color mix
That was years ago, so I'm not sure what colors came from where
They actually grow wild in some areas
I want some yellow, white & reds

I just transplanted a couple dozen Lupine seedlings over to an area by the stream
Also transplanted some that had roots & one decent size Lupine
They say you can't transplant them
But I have moved quite a few without any problem
I try to move the seedlings early in the year
This is the 1st batch to move...there will be many more

I want a ~6'x12' area filled with Lupines
I may even plant some in the wooded area

Planted 50 or so flowering sweet peas in front of the front porch to go with the Hostas. Started them 3-22-10 and didn't really expect them to be ready to go into the ground until we get back from vacation. Popped them in the ground today (must water until we leave) because they were climbing out of the seed tray.


- Clematis are both 'up'.

And tick season has come early this year. Pulled the first one off a dog. Guess it's back to frontline every 3-4 weeks. YUCK!

My Clematis has started to leaf too
I cleaned out a front garden & raised part of it near the front steps
I uncovered dozens of lupine seedlings
You will have plenty of seeds from your plants this year
The 1st year I brought the seeds in for the Winter...then planted in the Spring
They didn't do so well, so now I just leave them outside
I'm hoping you get some different colors then what I have

I should get some peas going to
I like them raw & fresh off the vine...but won't eat them when cooked
Can't beat this weather....we had a little rain today
Just enough to stop me from cutting siding with my skil saw
Hoping tomorrow will be better

We need RAIN. But the roses are loving life right now!

Peace roses and some burgundy hybrid.


Oklahoma and Oregold.

My roses look like a Major Leaguer has been feeding them PEDs all winter.



Where once there were two clumps of Ilex (holly), and thence there was a mud pit, now there is Rose garden:



Climbing Peace - MAJOR bloom producer, susceptible to black spot, but nothing some fungicide won't help.
