SEED GIVEAWAY!

...because I have some seeds and am feeling generous... if you would like to join the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment or become a follower (or BOTH for two entries...)  There will be many seeds included...definitely some coneflower and butterfly bush and false indigo and many more!

...and because there are many things lookin' pretty, but not blooming per say...
 Imperator cylindrical ... otherwise known as Japanese Bloodgrass is looking lovely.  I only wish the name weren't so gruesome...
 Hello little bunnies!  I find these little guys moved around the garden by two special little guys.  I can only imagine what the thought process is behind their placement.

  This rose is trying to attack...the dew's lovely though, right?





 Barrels certainly don't bloom, but they sometimes are pretty...this one will get thrown out soon, (hello sharp rusty edges!) but for now, it can bask in the sun.

Yes, I understand bittersweet is a noxious weed and I didn't plant it, but it is here (in abundance), so I might as well appreciate it right?  I think it's kind of gorgeous...and to tell the truth I've always wanted to plant it, but totally scared of the garden police...SO I'm glad it is here.


However glad I am of its presence, I would prefer it not take over, so when the berries are ripe and turn orange, they will be making lots of pretty bittersweet decorations.  There will be mass pruning and many free decorations :)  Stay tuned for photos :)

Here are some orange berries...I also found that when I cut the branches with yellow berries, the yellow skin peeled back to show off orange berries as well. 



I also found poison ivy among the bittersweet.  My arm did not appreciate it.  I did learn however, once and for all, what poison ivy looks like.  3 LEAVES and they look like an arrow about to attack you!  On trees, they have hairy roots and there are little black dots (of the poison oil) all over them.   I didn't react all that badly, but it is pretty stupid of me to learn what it looks like AFTER the fact.  Anyway, a fully informative poison ivy post to come...betcha can't WAIT!

Love your pictures! so cute having the bunnies moved around. My garden tends to have real bunnies visit, luckily they can't reach my plants! I'm lucky, I'm not allergic to poison ivy.
Thanks Medo and Melinda - both in!
