For a number of years now a friend and I have gone to Countryside Gardens and Motman’s, two garden centers in Allendale. I didn’t buy too much this year. I needed another flat of marigolds to finish up one small bed. And I needed a few pots to fluff up various gardens.
I noticed that one of the clematises is starting to bloom. I haven’t looked up which one this is (and I can’t remember) but I’m pleased it survived the winter. I bought three vines after Labor Day last fall and then didn’t get them in the ground very quickly. I’m quite pleased they seem to be thriving. I know the middle vine is a Sweet Autumn. I LOVE those!
One of the new pots landed on the little table in the Secret Garden. Notice the dogwood that is in full bloom. I think it likes the the new watering system.
I hope the mulch comes this week!! I’m in need of some weed control.
