Our patio thermometer hit 90 this weekend, spring is just about sprung. Here's what's opening up this week in the Cheapskate's garden.
Above, this cymbidium is a cross between tethys 'black magic' and voodoo.
When we moved into this house 17 years ago, I completely ripped out the landscaping, except for three camellia plants. I don't know they names but they bloom reliably every winter, like this red one above.
Here's a pink one at the other end of the garden. They love shade and damp ground.
This yellow rose is the first bloom of the season, it's been about 6 weeks from prune to bloom. Notice the aphids, I'll be doing a post on that soon.
I'll finish up with this lavender plant that I hoped to shape a little bit during the off season but too late now.
