Went grocery shopping today and discovered the Wally had the seeds and summer bulbs out!! Even with today's snow fall, spring will not be stopped!

Dutch Iris, Miss Saigon, for $5.00, I got 20 little bulbs.
Too bad it's not hardy in Zone 5....

 Picasso Canna. I grew this variety before. 3 big rhizomes in this bag. 
I will keep looking for a maroon leafed variety.
Commander in Chief Asiatic Lily
Interesting, it has red stamens and pistils! I will plant this among the larkspur I winter sowed. I think the blue and the deep red will be stunning. 


  1. Love the canna! Thanks for visiting my blog today! Nice to 'meet' you!

  2. Happy to have found your blog and look forward to following along!

  3. You're really getting into the gardening mindset :)
    I thought all Iris were hardy. Try Googling Dutch Iris and see what you find out. Miss Saigon is gorgeous. So is the Canna, but that red lily is absolutely glorious. I hope they all do well for you.
    Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comment. Ross and I can't wait till he's home! February is almost over. Spring is just around the corner :)

  4. You have chosen some lovely flowers - our supermarkets are full of bags of summer bulbs and packets of seeds at the moment. To √°nswer your question 'elevenses' is what we call a mid morning break over here - usually means stopping for a mug of coffee and a biscuit - lovely in the summer when you can sit out in the garden for 10 minutes or longer and wach the world go by:)


I would love to hear from you and if you can leave a comment, I will visit your blog, too!
