Spring brings warm breezes, longer days and time spent outdoors. And for this I am grateful as I have been waiting for a garden.
Last summer after removing nondescript shrubs and a multitude of Liriope from the garden beds, I purchased plants at an end-of-summer sale. I referred to the tags while placing them leaving enough room for growth.
I dug holes and added compost to each one before adding the plant. I want to improve the soil in my yard as it is mostly clay and sand. Adding compost, which is made of decayed organic material, will enrich the soil and fertilize the plants.
May update! My shade garden.
One of my favorites: Cranesbill Geranium ‘Biokova’. Covered with dainty white to pink flowers, it blooms spring into summer.

Another favorite: Alchemical Mollis ‘Lady’s Mantle’ The chartreuse flowers grow in clusters and are great as a cut flower.

There is no place I’d rather be than in the garden.
