Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade - my 70th and taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

Blooms to look forward to

 I do have some buds and plants to look forward to enjoying.

This iris - color unknown for now.

My herbs from the bottom - up: sage, mint, rosemary, basil, and thyme.

I've planted two of these mixtures. The geraniums are a deep red shade that pops.

Tamed this garden bed and planted marigolds and cleome.  The bricks were buried under dirt and weeds. I dug them out and weeks later 

decided I needed a walkway of sorts to the hose bib.

This lupine will be pink.

Not sure about the other plant - a daisy?

Transplanted iris are having a rough time but one showed a bud today.

This iris transplant is liking its spot.

Other lupine transplants will produce some flowers.

Columbine volunteers from daughter's garden have set blossoms already.

I planted 4 colors of impatiens that should like this mostly shaded spot.

Finally this huge clump of Siberian iris should not disappoint me.

...gardening is all about looking forward to the future and of course sore muscles.

Imagine in future years when the beds are full and plants are mature.

That should all look good in a month or so. I bought some cheap, mixed bedding plants recently and I'm also waiting to see what I've got - I don't even recognise what plants some of them might be.

Great to have beautiful plants coming along...I think I'm inspired to get some more down to just basil at this point! And oh I loved clipping a bunch and adding it to salads when I transplanted it to a bigger pot. It smiled at me, and I smiled back!

You have made a good start and like all things, it will take time, but those perennials will multiple and fill out in years to come. Then you might wonder HOW to trim them back. We had that issue with day lillies when we lived in VA.

So much to anticipate!
