You will have to excuse the tacky looking rope and fencing but it keeps Winston out of the garden to a certain extent! :thumbs up hes so darn big he crushes the flowers~!

Wow, you have quite a bit blooming already! :cloud9: So far, I have 3 small clumps of jonquils and a little patch of pansies that over-wintered under the oak leaves. :o

What's the red flower in the fence garden? Almost looks like a columbine, but I've never seen one that color.

Winston is looking mighty fine, I must say! :D

Winston, is the 3rd picture Heather? I planted some last year and this year it's brown and dry and I don't know if it will come back to life...:sad:

Yes it is...its one of my new plants this year. So far it looks good. I dont know much about it but it looks nice in the garden.

I can look up what it says on the tag to see if it needs any special attention or planting details if you like?

Cindy

I will post some more pics tonight! My yellow Tree Peony is blooming this morning OMG it looks beautiful!

That would be great! I got mine as a gift, so I didn't have any info about it. It does look nice...until it's brown and crispy, lol! Mine is a bit of an eyesore right now.

Would love to see more pics when you have them! :thumbs up

Very pretty flowers, and doggy :)
I like the dark mulch, I think it makes the plants stand out more, not a big fan of the orangey stuff

Looks like you have some nice Lilies poking their noses up behind the Columbine in the pot. What color are the Lilies?

Well I see some Aztec Lillies popping out in the second picture :thumbs up Love Aztec's :cloud9:

I used black mulch last year and it looks so nice in the garden. From a distance, the gardens look like their freshly watered. :lightbulb:

Winston looks so handsome and innocent in the last picture :D It's like he's saying, "What ME ruin the flowers--NOT!" :D:laughing::laughing:

What the heck is an Aztec lily? I thought perhaps those poking up were what's called LA Hybrid or Longiforum x Asiatic Lily.:shrug:

CearaQC your right they are Asiatic Lily. I just cant remember the colour? I will have to go back to picks from last year! :thumbs up
