Memorial Day Flowers

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.
