This year I'm not planting much, I'm working on thinning. Two years ago I went crazy with my almost empty raised beds, and now of course things are maturing and filling out and so it looks wild and crowded.
I will put in lycoris if/when I get some, and that's about it for the long-lived stuff. Except that I'm going to try Kev's advice about planting the amarylis in the ground for the summer, so I'll have to create a summer home for the ones I have.
I might have to put in new hosta. Hubby decided to weed-eat in the back yard this weekend which is all grass for the dogs, except for one area I put Hosta in the fall. He did not know this. He sees the large newly emerging leaves and says to himself: "what is that godawful huge ugly weed we've got coming up there this year?" and WHACKS it to heck! Before I go out there, I tell him how glad I am he weed-whacked so the hostas won't get grown over by grass and he gets this look:
"um, what's hosta look like?"
Sigh. Gotta love him, but darn that hosta was coming up so good, and the slugs hadn't even taken one bite out of them this year...
