Friday I got a package from Lola.....with lots of goodies, not just some Flowering Almond!
Included in the box was ----
- a small fern (not sure how this one will do, looks a bit sad today)
- a bunch of stems of a forsythia
- Flowering Almond, Prunus glandulosa
- about 5 stems of an azalea
- 5 or 6 bulbs, Snowflake, Leucojum
- A Pine Cone Lily, Zingiber zerumbet
- A Mother-in-Law's tongue, Sansevieria trifasciata
- an asparagus
After giving them a good drink and letting them rest in the shade, I planted the lot on Saturday morning.
Tiny fern frond, cross your fingers for this one.
With kneeling pad in hand, soil knife and plants, I planted Lola's plants.
Azaleas near the ferns in Fern Gully.
Another azalea planted in the water side of the garden.
Asparagus by the wall.
Pine Cone Lily looking a little limp...come on baby, perk up!
Forsythias in the dappled sunlight.
And the Flowering Almond on the other side of the bed, also in dappled sunlight.
The Mother-in-Law's tongue is in a container up by the house with a couple Elephant Ears, kind of a tropical look.
Many many thanks to Lola for such a generous offering of plants. I appreciate it so much!
