Finally the weather is warm and soon I'll be putting all these guys outside:
black krims peeking out the window
In their soon-to-be new home!
better than a bathtub!
Ten feet long by three feet wide means space for lots of veggies and soon there will be a trellis on the wall for giganto-bean, cucumbers and tomatoes. Exciting! But there are lots of other things coming back out too, like a little ginkgo:
hi friendly ginkgo
That little thing spent the winter looking like a stick stuck in the ground but I figured if these trees have been around since the dinosaurs they must be pretty tough. Same (except for the dinosaurs part) goes for the mint:
This mint has been planted and dug up and replanted so many times I've lost count. But now they are in a big container so that my entire backyard doesn't turn into a mint forest.
And some bulbs finally came out!
a mix of lots of things containing blue squill, eranthis, crocuses and others I've forgotten
Winter Wolf's Bane:
otherwise known as winter aconite or eranthis but obviously winter wolf's bane is the best name
The Winter Wolf's Bane even looks good after it's done flowering:
little flower lions manes
And here is one little blue squill in the deceased bathtub (RIP):
I also have lots of blackberries, raspberries and strawberries but that "wing" of the yard is not done yet. Soon!
