April Garden Journal

Hello everyone, 
Wow!!! It"s been awhile since I've posted on my blog.
The last time I posted was about two weeks ago.
I've been busy setting up for my two-day garage sale. 
It takes me a week to get ready for the sale.
I have just finished disposing of my mother's 
treasures.  She passed away in November 2012, and it
 took me four and a half years to process my grief 
I had dishes, nick knacks, linens and household items.
The weather has been rainy, and I need to get outside and
weed two more flower beds. I did walk outside yesterday
and took a few photos of my garden in April.
"Coral Bells"
"Pigs Squeak Plant"
This week I am busy playing with my husband at Car Show and Shines.
We have a 1937 modified Chevrolet, which we enter in a cruise ride
this Friday night. The good old days are here again.
We love to participate in vintage car shows.
"Indian Chief" Heirloom Iris
 We moved into this house in 1969, and I met a fellow growing
patent Iris, I gathered up a cardboard box of bulbs to
plant in the same place they grow today.
INDIAN CHIEF, 1929        
With velvety, wine-red falls and glowing standards of raspberry to bronze, this tall, striking, Jazz Age iris is one of the most colorful we grow. It’s exceptionally vigorous, too, thriving on neglect in old gardens everywhere and blooming even in part shade. By the good Dr. Wylie Ayres 
This is my new favorite plant. I have tried to grow Clematis forever.
I bought a plant last summer and was so surprised when I saw
the first bloom this spring. Every day another bloom opens up.

"White Eden Climber"

EDEN CLIMBER

Climbing Rose
Rounded, deeply cupped, full flowers of creamy white and suffused with pink most intensely at the edge of the rose.
Time for tea in the Rose Garden. (When it stops raining) with my angel.
I have pinned "April Garden Journal" on Pinterest.
Thank you for visiting.
Joyously,
Betty

  2. Your garden is lovely!! I adore Clematis, I planted 5 of them two years ago when I moved into my house. They should do well this season, as it's their third year!

  3. Betty, your garden is lovely. I'm envious that your iris bloom so proficiently. I'm going to look for Indian Chef bulbs. Do you ever dig up and divide? I'd be happy to buy some from you.

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Thank you for visiting my blog. I have moved the iris bulbs around my yard for almost 50 years. I don't sell the bulbs, but I found a few websites with Indian Chief Iris Bulbs for a great price. Thanks again
      for visiting My Cozy Corner. I visit your blog often.
      Joyously, Betty
