|Negrita Double Tulip and Purple Sensation Hyacinth|
When Jeff retired he took over the cooking (he's a much better cook than I), and he also took over the grocery shopping. But I have temporarily taken over the grocery shopping again since Jeff is in a vulnerable group (he's had pneumonia so many times, I've lost count). I made a produce/dairy run this morning and stocked up on vegetables so we can continue in our efforts to eat healthy.
It took way too long to clean all the food/produce before we put it away.
I had also pre-ordered a few plants from Xera Plants and picked them up as well.
|I picked up a Pacific Northwest native, Orange Honeysuckle (Lonicera ciliosa), to grow on a trellis on the wall. We were planning to build a trellis from cedar this year, but with the coronavirus making shopping so difficult, we're just going to jury-rig something from bamboo for this season.|
|The Camellia x williamsii ‘Night Rider’ has obviously died. I saw Shasta run over it last fall and I stood it back up and added the stakes, but it was obviously too late. When I found the Gordon's Currant (Ribes x gordonianum), I decided to change the plan. The little plants in the lower right are Sundrops (Oenothera fruticosa) that we were given by donaleen.|
|I am seriously in love with the Flowering Currant (Ribes sanguineum) in the front yard.|
|The Flowering Maple (Callianthe megapotamica 'Variegatum') has started putting on flowers.|
