You low lander gardeners are making me jealous! What with all your happy blog posts about how 'Spring' is only 20 odd days away.
This prompted me to tromp outdoors, in my snowshoes, to document my spring weather. There are exciting things happening in the garden:
Meanwhile, back in the sunny window...
These little darlins are working overtime.
There are a bazillion varieties of Bellflowers (okay, maybe 300) but this one, Blue Clips Campanula, is an A-Lister for my upcoming summer.
This petite Bellflower clings to slopes and blooms in a compact, little ball ~ ideal for the rock garden destined to become her new home.
The little seedlings in the above photo are aspiring to someday look as pretty as their big sisters currently do in my kitchen window.
Blue Clips (Alpine) Campanula carpatica is a USDA zones 3-7, tough little perennial, ideal for rock gardens. Individually, the flowers are less than 1/4 inch in diameter though she flowers so profusely she is quite the little show stopper in the Big Rock Garden.
PS: Don't worry about me. I'm keeping busy.
* Low landers live below 4,000 feet. I live at 7,500 feet. My garden is a slow starter but she's quite lovely when, or if, she ever starts blooming!
