First, my neighbor, who is a Master Gardener, has a plant sale. Between his own yard and the garden he plants along the bike path he has a lot of dividing to do. He uses this opportunity to sell extra plants that are getting too large.
It used to be $1 a plant. This year its $2. Ah, inflation. The money is put back into the garden, new plants, holders, etc. I bought 12 plants this year.
I also bought some bulbs for plants that grow in shade or partial shade. I'm going to turn the garden bed under the trees into a shade flower garden. Along with the flowers pictured I planted pulmonaria, lamium, and dwarf goatsbeard.
I also noticed that the parsley is coming back!
I was really excited because parsley is a biennial and this is the 3rd year I've had it. That means the seeds from the plant last year propagated. I wasn't sure that it would.
Dean and I also divided some of our own plants last night and planted them back into the pots I got from the sale. A friend has moved to a new house recently and could use some perennials. Oregano, strawberry (June-bearing and ever-bearing), bee balm, bachelors buttons, grape hyacinth, black-eyed susan, and lily of the valley. Now if she would only like some Obedient plants. They're taking over the back garden.
