While I'm in rantmode, I may as well post these photos of really bad edging. My parents paid money to someone to throw soil on top of their plants. There really is no excuse for this. It's one of the reasons I favor a mowing strip instead of a spaded edge.
Finally, to leave on a lighter note, I took this photo at The Growing Place.The appeal is obvious. The Tulips are protected by the invention of a suburban Chicagoan which is called "BunnyFence." I bought one, but I haven't decided yet which plant gets the special treatment. My problem this spring is more with deer than rabbits. Maybe I'll test it out against deer.
I went a little crazy yesterday and bought another Hellebore, but I just couldn't resist this one.It's a plant from the 'Ballerina Mix' of hybrid Hellebores, which is supposed to be of double blooms. But, as with other seed strains of Hellebores, not all plants are as described. More on this in a later post.
