Finally got out in the yard for an hour or so of weeding. Came in, crawled into the shower, and DH is at the bathroom door: “UPS just brought your plant order!”
Unfortunately, I am now whipped enough that they’ll have to wait until tomorrow to be planted.

we love anticipation—so I guess you get to “anticipate” for 24 hours! lol

I’ll sleep. That little bit outside wore me right out, lol.

I got a Lady Fern
Liriope
Cyclamen
Tradescantia
and English Primrose

I have a very shaded corner (west side of the house, north side of the deck, and under the canopy of a big old Sassafras tree to boot) they are destined for. Nothing else grows there, literally, except bracken.

Sounds exciting. I only know the primroses so you’ll have to show us a picture. :)

I understand your excitement because I enjoy adding new plants too. I wish plant all nursery companies would tell you the day orders are coming (or at least shipped), rather than a vague description like “April” which makes it more difficult to plan. Have fun planting today.

Dini: Have you done any planting yet? Hi, from London, Ontario. If I recall, you are not too far from here…

I’ve done a little, cold-hardy only. My pansy planters are filled and in place, cold-hardy bare-root stuff is in, plus the order that just arrived. Mostly, though, I’ve just been weeding and shifting things around, to find better spots for them. (Like my coreopsis and echinacea clump that I had put in front of one window. Unfortunately, that is the window the A.C. lives in, so that didn’t work quite the way I planned. I switched them out with a large clump of phlox, which won’t get tall enough for the A.C. to be an issue).

It’s always so exciting when those new plants arrive.We all want to rush right out and plant them.Still a little too early here yet though.Sounds like a nice mix you got.
