Plant Involvement Last Week!

I visited my parents this past week! It was about time!
:-)

We had lots of adventures and interesting events.
However, last Tuesday I spent the day at my brother and sister-in-law's.
You might like to see a landscaping project now underway.

This is a new daylily (I couldn't resist just one more!)
by the name of 'Siloam Double Classic.'
I purchased it from a wonderful nursery nearby.

On the way home yesterday morning (Saturday, 9/26),
we stopped to see Aunt MEA.
Her Garden Club members were hosting a plant sale,
as well as coffee and rolls, etc.


I was delighted to find this Pasque Flower,
Pulsatilla rubra (red).
It now resides in the Raised Bed Gardens.

You'll probably see this photo again soon,
as I want to post on recent Garden Projects.
This hypertufa bowl is holding a 'Ginko Craig' hosta on the left,
an unnamed hosta on the right,
a couple of miniature sedum (also unnamed),
and some Hens and Chicks purchased at the plant sale!
Yes - I'm happy! :-)

Gingko Craig is a nice hosta! I bought two of them two years ago and they look great. Their flowers are very nice too.

Rosemary said...

What a Terrific time you had! Lovely purchases !

Sounds like you had a fun trip, and a plant sale is always a good bonus!

Commonweeder said...

A great trip and great plants. It wonderful to be able to share our interests and passions with our greater families.

A good visit always involves lots of love, good conversation and plants! Sounds like you had a great visit! I have that daylily, but it didn't flower this year! Gail

Hi SG~~ If the real deal is anything like the photo, you're going to have one stunner of a daylily.

Always love a good plant sale. I look forward to more photos of the hypertufa. They're so much fun to work with, aren't they?

Hi Cameron! I did have a great week - lots of fun. :-) And it was fun to pick up a couple of Great Plants!

Dave, Have you noticed that Ginko Craig makes "babies?" I've been able to divide it many times and both spread it around and share it! :-)

Rosemary - :-) Thanks for visiting!

Monica, Finding new plants was the "icing on the cake" when it came to enjoying a fun week!

Commonweeder - most definitely. We gardeners are definitely related! :-)

Gail, Was your daylily a new plant this year? We can both look forward to next year!! :-)

Hi Rosey Pollen, Have you been making some hypertufa? Have you posted about it???

Grace! Come on over... I'm still working with the hypertufa. ;-) Just one more project (have you heard that before?) ha.

I'm so happy you're happy, Shady :) And with good reason ... you found some goodies, certain to delight you in spring (if we can all make it through the winter)!

Deborah at Kilbourne Grove said...

I would be interested in seeing your hypertufa projects as well. It is always fun to get "just a few more" plants!

Shady Gardener said...

Oh, Joey. I don't know about you, but I am in denial (of sorts) that it will soon be October! Whew! ;-)

Deborah, Hypertufa is a lot of fun. I often have more ideas than time to do them, though. Does that ever happen to you??

Gail said...

Shady, It was new this year! Daylily watch will commence in 2010! gail

Shady Gardener said...

Gail, Thanks for the info! Will you be posting about your daylilies in 2010?
