We visited the Garden Center at the Fred Meyer store this morning. We didn't bother with the groceries or the clothing or the automotive or any of the other many departments. We tried our best to avoid other shoppers, especially those who showed up without masks. We were only interested in plants.
We had made a list of what we wanted to fill or refresh our patio and porch pots and planters We found much of what we wanted. I'm going to start on some smaller pots this afternoon. We have a rainstorm coming tonight, and then after that we'll be cleaning pots and planting them up.
We plan to visit a favorite nursery tomorrow. We will be looking for a few special things, and just want it to be a fun outing. It's harder to enjoy being out when there is so much yet to avoid.
Spring is in full bloom here now. The "bloomin' wall" is doing its thing along the driveway.
The Lewisia are blooming on the front porch.
The Black Mondo grass and Angelina sedum are looking good under the bonsai bench.
The Golden Hop is growing a half a foot a day, and will soon be lifted and trained unto the gate.
Tom's geraniums from cuttings are out of the greenhouse and will take their places next week.
May Day is Friday. While we are still on most restrictions here in Washington State, time moves on and the seasons progress. It's time to plant!
