If you’re going to color, it might as well be the prairie!
There’s always something to do. What would you add to this? Let me know if you think I left something out, it’s only my second summer. -JD
I may have a problem… LOL. Today was the Oklahoma County Extension Master Gardener’s plant sale. I picked up 5 more pots but only 1 that will go in the Pocket Prairie. Brazos Penstemon. The rest are for my backyard 🙂 Have a good weekend and look for a post soon where I’ve finally got all of these into the prairie!
Today was opening day for Bustani’s Spring season. I went there last year and this year the same friend went with me. We were going up to close out my booth at Showplace Market finally and I was checking the hours for Bustani when I realized they opened TODAY. I was surprised but VERY excited. I also expected them to be pretty busy. They were. SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO FIND A LIST OF WHAT I GOT!
Silver Groundsel Senecio via-vira – not native and going in another area of my yard
Veriegated Solomon’s Seal Polygonatum odoratum ‘variagatum‘ – going in another part of the yard with more shade.
I may be stretching the ‘native’ theme a little thin. We’ll see how these things do.
Plants are starting to get tall enough in the pocket prairie now so when I mow, you can tell the prairie is intentional. Some things are taking off like the giant coneflower and the Mexican hats.
I did my first edging of the year and got WAY crooked lol. Its like hair. The grass will grow back. I won’t worry about it.
I’m noticing the blanket flowers are springing up everywhere. I thought they might be thinner this year but they’re in and out of the prairie making themselves at home all over making it really hard for me to mow even though I know there will be plenty.
There’s a new grass popping up too. I don’t know if it’s something to keep or pull so you know I’m letting it go. When it’s bigger and maybe when it flowers, I’ll ID it and make a decision. Fingers crossed it’s some Indian grass or something else native. 🤞
