What’s Blooming- May 8th, 2013

8 May

After a couple of recent trips to various places to get plants… there are lots of things in bloom I can’t really claim any credit for, so to speak, lol. So, those plants are still listed, but in parentheses. Most of those are recent purchases.

Also, its finally warm enough that just about everything is outside now! Yay! Only the Phaelenopsis orchids and the amaryllus stay inside for the summer, everything else gets booted one way or another outside, lol.

This week has been hot in the afternoons, though nights and mornings are often still under 50 degrees. Thge combination has plants both hopping to bloom, and some still rather shy to grow much.

The last week or so I’ve been going a little over board on annuals for the decks and stuff… we’ve spent way too much, but gotten some really cool stuff. I hope it all does well for the summer. I want lots of color, and hummingbirds flying all over! lol
