This plant is one of my new acquisitions this spring. It's called "Valerian" and the smell is gorgeous. Didn't even know it would have a scent, so that's an extra to the pretty little blossoms and interesting leaf structure.
This is my newest garden, made up of a lot of the plants that came from the front bed that had to be moved. I used an old bed sheet as a base before filling it in with lovely compost, peat moss and sheep manure. Then I ran out of supplies and energy so the back portion is not yet finished. The bricks in front are supposed to be a "step".
Poor me! I don't even remember the names of some of the plants and I do like to know what's growing and blooming. (I'll have to check my last year notes).
This bed is one of the closest to the back of the property. And I noticed a few days ago that the deer had begun to munch on a few of the plants. So, out came the "Skoot" and I had to spray (which is harmless to the deer but leaves beige spots on the plants).
Darn you, nasty Bambis! Why can't you just concentrate on my sacrificial Hosta bed I prepared for you? Why must you be so dog-gone greedy?
The countdown is on now for my "Summer o Freedom" when the students leave me for July and August. Ahhhhhh!
Now, let's head over to http://www.tootsietime.com/ to check out the rest of the lovely blooms this week.
