On the 5th of April, our great day trip to Elgin took us to Fairholme, where I bought all my grasses in my patch – well 90% of them. It is now 5 months later – whew, time flies – and the grass patch is still quite dormant – until yesterday! I was pleasantly surprised to see that the dry tufts of Panicum virgatum and Miscanthus are finally showing signs of life.

PanicumVirgatum “Shenandoah” now

Eragrostis Curvula now

As you can see, the grasses are showing a few sprouts, so this will be a spectacular area once these grasses mature and achieve a nice height. I am a patient gardener! Even the way they looked when I bought them, I will be totally satisfied to see all my grasses reach this original height!! But the potential of what I can expect will be surprizing! I love these grasses and I will definitely add to my garden more grasses in different areas.

The ”Red Baron” needs some growing

The sisyrinchium in bloom

You might ask what the big patch of green is behind the bird bath – well, these are corn flowers. I scattered seeds in a bald patch and these have come up. I am looking forward to these flowering.

Enjoy your weekend gardening xx it is a bit cold today so I am going to spend some time visiting our friends’ gardens.

Happy gardening
