Hmmm... as for my strange plant that I posted yesterday, here is a link I found at Dave's Garden website, to which I am also a regular contributor, of a Himalayan Rhubarb - these blooms look just like mine (mine is more in a bud stage than this, but this is what they open up to each year). So, whether or not mine is actually Himalayan requires more research, but it does appear to be a rhubarb! I love all the replies you ladies sent me about this - thanks so much! I have never been "into" rhubarb, so I am out of my element with this plant :-) It appears we shall have to move it to a more open area as it can grow to 6-8'!!
Ho-hum, I guess... another Garden Spot Sampler update - just a small scan of the area I have been working on...
Mike took some photos of our house over the weekend, while it was sunny and warm out. Now we have a week of rain... Anyhow... here you see my little green babies are starting to peek up from under the mulch... and some new phlox and a rose bush sit on the walkway just waiting for me to find time to plant them :-)
Stitched on today: Papillon Creations Mystery Sampler (already broke into the back up skein of Indigo Ocean that I ordered last week!) and Garden Spot Sampler
