So we're starting to see a few more sunny days and I'm starting to get more motivated to get outside and do some things. . .
A few days ago, my friend invited me to come over and help liberate some of her bluebells that have taken over her front beds. . .and being the great friend that I am, I rushed over to help her out. We barely made a dent in her bed and I had about 30 bulbs to take home! I finally got to transplanting them today. . .I had an idea where I wanted them, but didn't realize just HOW many I had until I went to start planting them. Holy cow. I spread them out all over out yard. They should be pretty when they establish themselves in the coming years. . .
The oregano and garlic container is not looking so hot. I'm gonna mix it up a little compost tea and see if that helps. If not, oh well, I guess. The sage is looking pretty perky, too. The other oregano is still looking pretty good and we've still got plenty more garlic, as you can see. . .

Oh I love bluebells! We had tons of them at our previous home. I brought some with me to our new place 3 yrs ago. I'm hoping, like you, that they will spread and fill in. What a nice friend you have!

Thanks!! I'm really kind of surprised the sage is doing so well after it's transplant. . .I was thinking I should have waited, but am super glad it worked out. I had some seeds as back up in case it died. ;o)
And the blue bells are one of my favorite bulbs. . .I wanna mix in some Lily of the Valley in with them over by our trees, if I can find any at a reasonable price. . .
