    That is a sight for sore eyes longing for warmer weather. Again, it's a beautiful garden and I look forward to seeing pictures of it from the coming summer. Have you planned any new additions for the year?

    I have some new plants on order. I've told them not to ship until after Mother's Day, as that is usually when the final frost is over. Not always. Sometimes we have to wait until Memorial Day. The local garden centers will be in full swing by then, but I'm going to the larger nearby cities, because their plants are bigger, more developed and sturdier.

    There'll be some bright, royal blue Veronica, some perennial red salvia, some more yarrows, snapdragons, coreopsis, among others.

    I'll also be adding some interesting and aesthetically pleasing garden art and statuary this year. I have a garden globe that is quite beautiful. And of course, I'll be putting the birdbath agitators in my birdbath and shallow pool, and a free-standing solar fountain in my deeper pool (the one in which the tadpoles always hatch).

    Yes, I am looking forward to it enthusiastically. Every year there' something different and quite wonderful.

    It's about the size of a 40-gallon aquarium.

    In the past when I tried to take pics of my yard I found that they never look as great as the real thing in person. Since your pics are so colorful already I can't imagine how wonderful it must all look in person. Beautiful!!!

    Lovely, just lovely.

    As I was looking at the picture, something felt off to me, though. It took me a minute to realize what it was...you have lilies and snapdragons growing and blooming at the same time! By the time lilies bloom here, the snapdragons are done for due to the heat. Snapdragons are a cool season plant here. We plant them in the fall and early spring; in mild years I've seen snapdragons blooming all winter.

    The lilies and snaps sure are pretty together, though.

    Our growing season is too short to sow Snapdragons from seed. So, I purchase them well developed and already budding and/or blooming, and transplant them carefully, as Snaps are fussy about having their roots disturbed. Then I water them well and frequently in well-drained soil. I deadhead spent blooms regularly. That way, they are blooming at the same time the lilies and other early-to-mid-season flowers are in full display. Regular deadheading of entire stems as their blossoms fade keep the Snaps putting on new flowers and makes them fuller and bushier. Even on hot summer days, regular watering in the coolness of the early morning and/or the cool of the evening keeps them from suffering during the heat of the day.

    Those that sprout on their own from parent plants having dropped seeds do take much longer to mature and bloom -- and I get Snaps in Fall from them.

    It's a win-win situation.
