Not to be outdone, the tub bound Quince threw out a few blooms. These were sticks about 3 years ago that one of our neighbors gave me off of her Flowering Quince. I stuck them in a pot and only 2 rooted. Now there is just 1, but it’s quite healthy looking. Maybe this will be the year it actually makes it out of this tub and into the ground.
The Hostas that I thought had died have come back strong. Ernie watered them several days ago and set the pots in the sun…and look at them now!
In about 2 weeks, they’ll be shooting up bloom stalks and the bees will come.
Needless to say, these have multiplied greatly and should also be in the ground. I had wanted to plant them around the fountain, but I’m so afraid of snakes…and cool hostas around the base of a fountain seems too inviting. At least with them in pots, I can SEE the ground. Just call me chicken :-)
