"Walker's Low" Nepeta. I resisted the urge to use this at "N" so that I would have a "W".

Here's my W's: Had to use much self control, not to post more WEDDING pics!

My poor barren Wisteria; 12 years, several moves,, no blooms, dies back every year,,but, not ready to give up on it, yet! One more move to come, this year, into a sunnier, but less protected area.

This guy came out, in the dead of winter, in one of my hibiscus plants that had lived outside for the summer. Thought I'd cleaned it well, before bringing it indoors.

The lettering on the pumpkins has washed off, but, originally said WELCOME, in very black lettering.

Love the 'William Baffin' roses.
I also like the Nepeta 'Walker's Low'. I have seen it magazines.
Yesterday, I placed my first online order for potted plants. I ordered them
from Canning Perennials in Paris, Ontario. I have received their Newsletter
for a while now and have admired their web sight as well. I have been trying to find a Clematis, either 'Duchess of Albany' or 'Princess Diana' (they are very similar), for 2 or 3 years now. We had Duchess for many years, maybe 12 at least. When it was purchased I knew absolutly nothing about gardening. It was just a happy chance purchase. She just bloomed & bloomed & then one spring she did not come back. Anyhow, I found Princess Diana in the Canning newsletter and purchased it & ended up buying another Clematis 'Arctic Queen', a new Echinacia 'Hot Papaya' & a new Sedum 'Goodbud'. Good grief. LOL. I have only ever ordered seeds before now. I sure hope by the end of May it has warmed up. That is when I asked for their delivery.
Sorry to see the end of the soup coming. As usual, it kept me from
going completely stir crazy!!!
My W's....

Echinacea 'White Swan'

Wandering Jew. I rooted some of this and kept it over winter. I have enough
so that I can save some $$ later on. Good thing too. Will help pay for my online buying.
