Almost Wordless Wednesday: Weirdness


Last fall I dug these salvia 'Maraschino' out of the garden and plopped them in a pot to brighten up my patio. I had planned on repotting them this week while I'm on spring break. When I came outside on Monday, they were blooming! In April!!

  6. Nice red flowers. How do you guys dig out established plants? I find that their roots are so deeply-entrenched that it's next to impossible.

  9. When I had salvias (they have since been crowded out), they bloomed in spring too. Before that I had always thought of them as summer and fall bloomers. A delightful surprise!

  10. The weather is weird....what can I say, we have weird weather over here in London too! Nice Salvia, I used to grow them, but as annuals.

  11. This mild winter has made the impossible possible. I have an older variety of hydrangea that blooms on old wood. I have never been able to get it to successfully over-winter, but yesterday I noted that some branches actually made it through the snow and ice. Now, I am wondering it will finally bloom after almost 10 years!
