Well, the plants; such as they are survived. Some thrived and some didn't do that well. I suspect it was due to over crowding in the pots. But we ran out of pots! So, oh well.......
Here is a picture of the Hyacinths and Tulips that we salvaged before they were ready to pop open...
And here is after......:-) these are some Hyacinths
These are some Tulips. This picture was taken through a window that is why it looks a bit cloudy. the tulips don't seem to be doing that well as far as blooms go.
These are the Grape Hyacinths. When fall comes, I will trim the leaves back and maybe separate the bulbs some.....
More Hyacinths......:-). These are starting to fade now. Ass you can see in the background, the landscapers have not come to lay down sod or seed yet. So, we figured we had better put in the ground whatever we were going to plant this year in a hurry. Otherwise, we would have to cut through the sod to do it. I don't think the Strata management company would have been happy with that.
We headed for a nursery out of town that I had never been to before.....yay...!
Although, I have no idea what happened at this point...haha
Night lights....very cool....:-)
A fire place/ waterfall combo....now, that is really cool!
ok, ok...back to business... We had loaded up a cart with 4 beautiful Rhododendron and then decided to google the species and see what diseases it was susceptible to. Well, we had that part under control and then discovered we are living on the WRONG side of the building for proper lighting.....:-(. We really had our hearts set on those or Hydrangeas. But both seemed to be quite delicate and we get a LOT of sun for a LONG time in the summer....:-(. So, we finally settled on some Hibiscus plants.
These are "double bloom" Hibiscus, so I hope they are as pretty as they sound. They were all quite a bit cheaper than the Rhodes and the Hydrangeas too.
These didn't have a picture, but the description sounded pretty. All of them are still in dormancy. Hopefully in a couple of years they will have filled out and become quite beautiful.....
Chris ordered some Poutine as a starter. For those of you who don't know what Poutine is; it is french fries (or yam fries) smothered in gravy and topped with cheese curds. It was dark in the restaurant. Sorry about the blurr....
I ordered mushroom stuffed pasta with truffles......(or something like that)..??
Then for a main course he ordered this giant burger thingee.....ha
It was a great day and I have a feeling it is going to be a great summer.....:-)
See you soon!!
