Tragically, going to Wolfes Neck practically forces us by Estabrook’s in Yarmouth, so here’s today’s haul from there. We got three of the red verbena that did so well up front last summer, a red nicotiana (that looks more robust than the ones I grew last year), a Rozanne geranium, some supplemental Swiss chard, a sungold tomato and oregano.
The front bed really is the worst for taking pictures, because there’s always some sort of sun line, but here’s Rozanne and the verbena in their new home.
The kniphofia, sea holly and delphiniums have all come back. The violet and wild strawberries are doing really well this year as well. I hate cutting them back – I don’t really consider them weeds, so I’ll let them go as long as they don’t completely get in the way.
I also planted a sedum that had found its way to the back of the shed up in this bed. I’m in the process of redoing the compost pile back there, so it needed to be moved. It’s red, so I figured might as well put it up front – that fits the theme. We’ll see if it’s ok with the sun situation in this bed.
We are on the lookout for another yellow dahlia to put up here, but for reasons that’ll be clearer later, I have a little less plant shopping time this May than I usually do.
