A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

My Plants Arrived

My Japanese Anemone arrived this morning. They arrived healthy and bright green. I have to keep them in the vicinity of where they are going to be planted...to acclimate them to my garden. I've decided to plant them  near the other Anemones.I haven't heard but one bad thing about these plants. They tend to wander. Well, they can wander in this garden. I will welcome a garden full of these beautiful fall blooming plants.

I think the best time to plant these is in the spring. I planted the others in the fall and I mulched them.
I only got three plants....they are pretty expensive. These came from Wayside Gardens. I've had very good luck ordering from them.I still have some Snowdrop bulbs coming and a Red Lion Amaryllis. These will come at the end of the month or Oct. I may put a few tulip and daff bulbs in some pots to force in the fridge until spring.If I do, Ill show how I do it.
Love these flowers!

They look so healthy.
I think my ordering days
are over. Will do good to
take care of what is multiplying in my garden.
Have a good weekend....

Thanks for the reminder that I need to get busy and buy/plant some snowdrops.

Good luck with the Japanese Anemone. I always admire them when I see them on blogs. So pretty.

Happy Fall...donna
