Virginia Bluebells

Virginia Bluebells are blooming like crazy, the flowerbed is not cleaned out yet but they came up anyway!!! LOL

We worked like crazy people this weekend with 86 degree weather I didn't want to come in until dark. Two truck loads of mulch and we are about a third of the way done. This weekend we will work on my large back bed, at least it doesn't take as much mulch, because it is full of perennials. Although I need to move a lot of the flowers in this bed to another. I love the heat but, it was crazy hot for April this last weekend.
I only came home from work at the garden center with 4 plants this week, but next week I get to work at West Virginia University Greenhouse and I know I will bring home lots. I've already called and begged them to propagate a few pieces of my favorite Geranium for me. That place will be crazy this weekend, it is the first weekend of the Annual Sale. I will take lots of pictures, I promise...
Ok it is bed time, I worked both jobs today and I am dead tired.
Have a Good One,
Lynn

Love those bluebells! This past weekend must have been warm everywhere: we had temperatures in the 80's, too, and I spent most of the time in the garden...that is until my muscles gave out:) I guess I should be glad it is raining this week so I can rest up before the next big day of garden work. So much to do, so little time! Hope you are getting some rest this week, too.

Those are so pretty! I heard they like the warmer climate so I've never even attempted them. Anxious to see more of your landscape! I'm envious of your warm weather!

Lynn your bluebells are so dainty and pretty.And I thought I was the queen of mulch ;-) The annual sale sounds like a great event. Too bad I am too far away.My pocketbook will be happy though.

I've only seen Virginia Bluebells once growing and the lady had the most beautiful gardens and she said they bloom and disappear? Maybe you can tell us more about growing them. She had a lot of shade so it was probably always a moist area where they grow. Are they bulbs or seeds? Love them! When do they bloom?
