In other "tea and gardening" news, I was thrilled to go to the mailbox the other day and find the "plug" I had ordered had arrived. This heucherella (common name: foamy bells) is one I ordered because of the pretty foliage and because of the name.
See what I mean?
I planted this in my new shade garden that is in progress, next to some ferns. It is said to grow and spread very fast, so we'll see!
And finally, some of you have asked about my new 'Tea Clipper' David Austin rose planted on April 5. Look at how well it's doing!
Little green shoots are popping out all over. When the blooms finally arrive, I'll probably have a party to celebrate!
