At long last the tulips and lilacs bloomed.
now looks like this. Although it has climbed halfway up the lattice, it still has only one bloom.
My Dad always tells me that I need to add Ivy Geraniums to my baskets so I decided to do just that this year.
I bought this perennial purple salvia at the end of the season last year. It had finished blooming and was 80% off at the nursery so I couldn't pass it up. I have a soft spot for things on clearance at the nursery, especially if they look sad and unloved. I usually end up taking them home and finding a spot somewhere.
