Today I planted impatiens
I always plant impatiens under the big tree in the front yard every year, after the daffoidil blooms are gone. I took this afternoon off from work to get a head start on my traditional Memorial Day "work-in-the-yard" weekend. Over the weekend, I will prepare the other garden in the front yard which has mostly perrennials with a few colorful petunias thrown in. I have to plant deer-resistant plants in the front yard. It is not uncommon for me to open my front door in the morning and find a deer or two looking back at me as if they are thinking, "What are YOU doing here???", as they help themselves to my plants.
The six lilac bushes that I planted in the back yard two years ago are doing just great this year with dozens of blooms on each bush.
