Is it too early to start worrying?

OK, I’m a little worried. Flowers in the new flower garden aren’t doing all that good. Some look like they’re on death’s door, although I’m hoping that’s just the shock of being transplanted. Anyway, I gave them a good watering tonight, and with temperatures forecast in the high 70s or maybe even 80 the next couple days, I’m hoping they rebound. Fingers crossed. Please don’t die on me now!

The brown spots in several places, as well as the wilted perennials, have me worried. Please get better!



On the other hand, my tulips are doing fantastic! The photos speak for themselves.

They bring a nice touch of color to the front of the house.

    They will probably look worse before they get better. You probably won’t get alot of show this year, they need to establish their roots. Whatever you do , don’t think they are dead, and pull them out. Roger planted over 100 perennial plants, 3 years ago in my new angel garden, and then the rains came, they were all moldy and just rotted off at ground level. I left them alone, figuring I had nothing to loose, as the roots were still there. You should see them this year!!! They are just beautiful. There is a saying about the first three years of a perennial. First year it sleeps, putting everything its got into it’s root base. 2nd year it creeps, little more show, but still developing, and 3rd year it leaps, putting on a great show for all. Got to have patience. (Or loads of cash to buy fully grown plants LOL)
