Damp in the morning, sunny and humid in the afternoon, in the 70s. We keep getting forecasts of massive rain storms, and all we've gotten from the last 3 rainstorms is less than a tenth of an inch, a quarter inch, and now last night less than 2 tenths. We need more rain than this.
I took out the slow to emerge big white gaura in the Birch Garden, and when I dug it up the roots were soft and slimy. Had to go. I've now lost all the gauras I had. I moved the Albury purple St. Johnswort there (also slow to emerge, and then in the summer it seeds everywhere), and divided the Sundrops and put a division there.
I put the Frosty Morn sedum in the Meadow's Edge... I don't really like it so much, and it's been planted everywhere, but we'll see how it looks here.
Planted herbs around the patio; lots of parsley around the birdbath, and marjoram and basil along the wall.
Ordered plants from Lazy S today... my favorites that I want to extend: Wlassovianum geranium, Frohleiten epimedium, and I am going to put European gingers in Northern Exposure where the bergenia is now.
