Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

A stroll around Keewee's garden

There is a little bit of color in the garden, but that will change soon, as I intend on planting some more colorful annuals in this spot.

I can hardly believe how much the Hosta has grown since I planted it two years ago.

Stock, Dahlias, Allysm and Lobelia

There is not a whole lot of color in the garden just yet, mostly all shades of green, which is very attractive.
In no time at all, the plants which were put in the gardens yesterday will be in bloom, and if, the slugs don't eat everything in sight, then there should be plenty

This Columbine is such a delicate shade of pink.

This is the front garden I will be adding to. I am happy to say the Hellebore I thought was lost this past winter, has made a strong return.

Mimulus is a dainty brightly colored plant that has come back for the second year. I do love self seeding plants.

Goodness, look how tall the Asiatic Lillies have grown this year.
There are also, Gladioli planted around and in between the lillies. What a colorful display this will be.

Oh my goodness Keewee, you have been a very busy girl! Your garden already looks so beautiful. It will be spectacular this summer. Your choice of plants is wonderful! I am looking forward to more pictures as they all fill in!
