New Plants in the Garden

A month back I got a fairly regular e-mail from one of the Internet sites I've purchased from in the past (Blooming Bulb) that advertised a huge growers overstock sale with significant savings.  I clicked on the link and well, you know how this story goes.  Before my better senses could take over I'd ordered 125 root divisions.  Granted they were only being sold in increments of 25 and they were quite cheap, but still.  This was yet another case of my gardening eyes being bigger than my gardening stomach. 

That's why it's been quiet on the blog here, I've been planting (and panting) like crazy the last week getting everything in the ground.  It shouldn't be long before we have a whole lot of cool new flowers around here.  So what did I add?  25 each of the following:
  • Zing Rose Maiden Pink Dianthus
  • Summer Sun Heliopsis
  • Paprika Yarrow
  • Arizona Sun Gaillardia
  • Caradonna Salvia  
Maybe in another month or so I'll have some new flower pictures to post, so stay tuned.

Thanks for the votes of confidence. I'm hoping that I'll have some awesome blooms in another months or so.
