Plants in the Shade Garden
The trillium and the round lobed hepatica plants are in their new home. Ed spent considerable time mixing the dirt using part duff and part garden soil . We even checked the ph. We want these plants to be happy here.
I heard the peepers for the first time today. We finally had some decent spring rain and perhaps that is what is making them sing. Of course their "singing in the rain" is not about dancing, but I bet they are really "happy again!"
After dark we experienced our first thunderstorm of the year. It was a bit of a surprise as cool as is was, but then surprising weather seems to be the new norm.
