The first dutch iris of the year opened March 30....
while the wisteria is getting close to peak bloom.
Fave beans have appeared as if by magic...I checked what seems like days ago and saw no evidence of the pods. The beans are held in an upright manner right at the stalk.
Saturday I tried to go to the local Arboretum sale and found the parking lot empty...the sale is next week! Being all primed for retail therapy my gardening friend and I continued on to one of our favorite nurseries...Capital Nursery in Sacramento.
There were lots of annuals and perennials...
and also lots of roses! I stopped myself from forcing people to put the tomatoes and peppers back on the shelf. It really is too early for those, tempting though they looked.
I came away having done minimal damage...2 sixpacks of foxgloves, a six pack of allysum, a nemesia, 2 new carnations, an abutilon and a thornless evergreen Boysenberry.
