A Spring DayPosted: March 8, 2013
There is nothing more wonderful than garden surprises. This was blooming in a patch of Walking Iris. It has never bloomed before and where it came from is a mystery.
With more buds, it will be blooming for days to come.
An early spring bloomer. It has a scent and the bees love it.
This plant has a sprawling habit, but is a reliable bloomer even after a freeze. Unfortunately, its name has been lost. Any help identifying these two would be appreciated.
Cedar Waxwings also visited the Automatic Garden today. They took time out from eating red berries for something tasty on this Bradford Pear.
This Kalnachoe was purchased in a grocery store two years ago. It came with an expiration date and has survived long after its time. The plant became leggy, so it was trimmed and cuttings were stuck in a pot. Now it is more beautiful than before.
Another garden surprise showed up. These Johnny Jump-Ups reseeded themselves. In the Automatic Garden the soil is rarely disturbed and it allows plants to self-sow.
