Gardening Delayed

This delicate Columbine is one of my favorites.
I especially like that it self seeds.

We want to add Johnson's blue to the pink cranesbill geranium
in
our garden. So far, it's not to be found in Charlotte.


We'd planned to spend the morning in our garden planting blue larkspur, grey artemesia and coral poppies. That was going to be the easy part. We were then going to dig and divide several hosta, filling in along our path. Some favorite plants have not come up and may have succumed to drought. I'll miss the Baptisia (false indigo) the most.

Forecasters predict severe weather with wind and hail late today. Our new plants will remain on the back porch for now.
