Re: More flower pics/catchup

I agree with Kitty, the blue groundcover is a lithodora. Forgot the name looks like bog myrtle. Sorry I don't know the botanical name on that one.
Thanks forposting the bloodroot pics Kitty, lovely.
Chris, great pictures.
Welcome to the group Sue, good folks here.
I'm doing my best to keep up with reading the posts, but mostof my comments are offline. This causes my family to say "what?" a lot. Then they realize I'm talking to the computer. I get a lot of smiles from you.
The class Thursday evening went well. Lots of group participation, some hands-on demos and lots of handouts. Thanks for the info I found in the archives. topics I used were the posts on solarization, island jim's growing tomatos in straw & chicken manure, potatoes in straw & the thread starting with Kitty's newspaper & strw mulch. Main thing I learned was that the garden books I browsed all hit the same topics 1)choose your site, 2)analyze your soil, 3)choose your crops, 4)amend your soil, 5)build your garden, 6)plant, 7)maintain your garden & 8)harvest. Lots of different layouts and ways to amend the soil, manage pests & weeds. Mulching had a a lot of variants, too. It was interesting to do.
We went out of town Friday afternoon, got back about noon today (Sunday). 1 hot day really changed the look of everything. Dogwoods in full bloom, hostas with a lot more leaf, not a bare branch in sight. Full blown Spring, with Summer coming fast. Wish I could retire. I have too much to do to take time out for gainful employment.
