OMG are those little blue things the forget me nots? I have some little blue flowers and don't know what they are, but mine are single and not on that little vine. The blue yellow is a great combo!.

Our wisteria stopped blooming about a week ago, but while it was, Oh what a sight.

Some of my new finds.

Rose bush on the side of the house. It is next to my camillias. I have never seen it bloom. Funny, it looks just like my Cami's.

Love the roses, they look so healthy too. Your garden is certainly blooming lovely!
I gave up with the slug/Hosta war a few years ago. Your Hosta looks like a nice one.
Thanks for sharing.

Terri, here is a link on organic slug control. I have heard the beer method works well. I use diatomaceous earth, which you can find at nurseries and on-line. It has worked great.

Here are my other hostas. They are much more open now and faring well.

The only trouble with the beer method is you have to empty it ......yuk!
Thanks for the link.

The pincushion flower has entralled me. I cannot believe how many blooms and buds are on it. And the size of it too!!

I haven't tried the beer method and don't want to. Neither will I Pick off the slugs, disgusting.

My yellow rose bush is just about ready to start showing off again...

LOL, I pour some table salt on the slugs and they just dry right up. Never used any other method.
Love those roses, so healthy they are. I'll have to go see if I have any appearances. I did see some Solomons' seal coming up.
I separated my yucca on Sat. with Mike's help digging but afraid I may have killed it as not able to get much root the trunk went way down and so I had to saw it off, then separated into two clumps. Had to be moved as it was right at the edge of the walkway and kept poking my legs and close to poking out the eyes on my little Abygail and Eva when they visit.
So glad to see things coming into bloom.

Hi Candee........... Some call that MURDER!!!!!!!! LOL. I don't mind sharing some of my plants with slugs and snails, but WHY do they have to be so greedy and eat everything?!
Hope you manage to save your Yucca. Are Abygail and Eva your Grandaughters?
Your lenten rose looks a beautiful colour..

Traci, Love your pincushion, so full of flowers! Hope mine gets bushy like yours.
No buds on my roses yet......

Honesty, not much else flowering here yet. Please keep your pics coming!

Abygail Grace is 1 1/2 and Eva Grace is 2. Yes my beautiful grandbabies.
I don't kill all the snails, just the ones I see when I happen to be walking around with a can of Mortons LOL!

Here are some garden pests across the street.

Oh lovely ages! bet you have your handsful when they come to visit!
Are those Deer? they LOOK sweet! I'll take your word that they are pests in the garden. I can just imagine the havoc they could cause!
I haven't been out in the garden today, no pics sorry!

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Yes, deer, but I have no problems with them, there is plenty enough in that field for them that they don't bother on this side of the street. Thank goodness as they do love flowers.

Wow, all your flowers look so special. They seem to pop up quickly, seeing as you just came out of winter! I'll try to take some new pics this weekend. You've seen most of mine already terri.

Hi Sue, Glad you found me here! Love to see your Aussie flowers anytime, so different from mine!
The forget me nots hide everything coming up! but I love them and they are better than bare soil.
Your Orchid is such a lovely vibrant colour, really pretty. I don't have any Orchids!
Look forward to your pics at the weekend!
Nothing new flowering yet!

Coffs Harbour, Australia

I was given some forget me not seeds, but I don't think they'll like it here. I have put pansies in this week, but have nothing new flowering either. Oh, I lie! A Tillandsia ionotha

That Tilly! is really pretty Sue, thanks for sharing. The forget me nots would do better in a damp boggy area, they like it wet! What else you got in flower?
Raining here all day. BOOOOOOO!

Coffs Harbour, Australia

Raining here too, boggy I got!
This is the front gate and drain!
