Springing in the Rain

Yesterday was get stuff done day.  After taking care of business, we “found ourselves” at HQ, imagine that.  Here are some pretty crocuses and squill outside the Tavern.

Then we made our first spring appearance at Siebenthaler’s Nursery and Garden Center, just to scope it out.  They were just beginning to set up their outdoor displays, so we talked some shop (yay!) and bought a token plant or two.  We got a native Euonymous americanus (“strawberry bush”) and some bare-root native yellow trilliam to add to our future “woodland” areas.  Next up will be a coniferous evergreen privacy hedge between us and the too-close neighbor.

Meanwhile, back on the porch, more seedlings are coming up, and today I started two more trays of seeds to replace the ones I transplanted outdoors.  There are more greens, herbs, and annual/perennial/native flowers.  Queen Misu supervised from her tall throne.

Here are some non-native but pretty Pulmonaria, pink hyacinth, and purple primrose happily growing in the rain.
