Is anyone up for sharing garden joys and “ishyews?”    

Of course, I'm in the Pacific Northwest - the nursery to the world - where the soil is rich, the climates diverse, the rains often at least West of the mountain ranges, and life is good for the novice gardener.  

My personal favorites are the roses that grow in large and small shrubs, without the fuss and demands of tea roses, but with that gloriously old-fashioned mystery about them that has me thinking of Josephine Bonaparte and her fabulous collection.

But I’m equally as enthralled with Japanese maples in their many varieties, rhododendrons, azaleas, hostas, glorious grasses . . . . a host of possibilities for every site.  

Anyone willing to share with me?

    • I love to share something but I have a killer thumb
      this morning I found my indoor plants were dumb,
      they all bowed down and look numbed
      I dare not mention anything but just thumped!

    • hi joc,

      I love to plant perennials.  Last year two friends gave me about 3 dozen plants altogether.  I also went to a plant swamp and received 2 dozen more plants.  Got everything looking beautiful and had a serious illness and couldn’t do a darn thing at the end of summer and fall.  Now this year I can’t wait to see what comes up as some things were already done blooming last year.  Happy Spring. happy Waiting for my first daffodil to bloom.
