Just got some pics, the rain makes everything look so healthy and I'm sure I've noted some new growth seemingly overnight.

Prepared a shady bed for my mom at the cabin today (needed to make a spot for Bleeding Hearts, Hosta, Lily of the Valley, and a Yellow Lady's Slipper). I needed to remove some Ostrich Fern and Mertensia (Virginia Blue Bells) from the area before I was able to plant, so I came home with a large chunk of Mertensia and a few crowns of Ostrich Fern, for my shady beside the Lilac at the end of the border. I'll have to pic up a Lady's Slipper next time I go on a trip, it was reasonably priced and my mom's is just getting ready to bloom... hoping it does well in the bed I prepared, it will look great surrounded with Blue Bells and Ostrich Fern.
