During the cold and rainy month of April, we gardeners tend to go a little stir crazy waiting for a few days of sun to appear! In central Illinois, there really haven't been a string of sunny days yet this month. So what is a gardener to do? Go walk the greenhouses, of course! Nothing provides better inspiration and a lifting of the soggy spirits.
I came home Sunday with this beauty!
It was cloudy and cold again Monday, so I set out for another garden center. This time I couldn't pass up some good old fashioned Virginia Bluebells, 'Mertensia virginica'.
