Lily of the Valley and Sorbet Peony planted.
I got a dozen Lily of the Valley pips from Marigold Nursery and planted them in my front garden under the Japanese Maple and Rhododendron. My mother always had them at whatever house we were living in. They were a constant, so I have a real soft spot for them. They don't seem to grow really well on the coast, but I keep trying anyway.
My sister Jess came over for her chive division. She dropped off a nice chunk of garlic chives for me. How fun.
I perused the yard for about a half hour and scouted a location for the Rainier Cherry. I was thinking of putting it in the front yard, but I don't think it would be a good idea to put a lovely dwarf cherry in the front. I'm thinking maybe a semi-dwarf fruit tree. Apple? Nectarine? What do you think? A Semi-dwarf would have a lot more fruit, which could be shared among passers by and still have lots left for us.
