This weather has me so mixed up. I KNOW we will have cold and even frosts again, it's only early April. But things are pushing up, perennials are emerging and it feels so much like late May, that I'm anxious that I won't get stuff done before the heat of summer. I still need to dig the beds for the plants along the driveway (need dirt.. no answer from Bluestone). It feels like I'll be doing it in the misery of hot summer, but really, it's only April.
I did manage to plant the pieris today. Look at the ratty brown heathers:
(Sedum kamschaticum Weihenstephaner Gold):
The yellow root is blooming before it leafs out!
The Golden Peep forsythia is a problem. I cut out the dead wood, not sure what the problem is or what I should do here. Fill in with more cuttings?
I have seedlings! Zinnias are popping up, and I think I even see a little hint of nasturtium peeking up.
