Gardening

I had a mini adventure at the garden nursery this past week end. I was looking for plants and flowers that come up every year as well as a solution for mosquitoes. I am tired of becoming a walking buffet for those vampire insects.
I went with my mom-in-law to Les Serres Sabrevois.
They have absolutely everything you could ever imagine needing or wanting for your garden.
I found everything I has on my list and then some.

I lost the tag for this plant:

If anyone knows what it is, can you please tell me?

These are the ones I managed to keep with the tags:
An Asiatic Pot Lily


Santa Cruise Sunset Begonias

if only because it reminds of a Sublime song.

Berry White Osteosperum


Veronica Longifolia


Cherry Blossom Delphinium


Gaillardia Goblin

Anything with the name Goblin in it must belong in my backyard!

Echinacea Pow Wow Wildberry.

This is what my garden looks like after I ripped up all the Hostas and transplanted the Daffodils:

This is my solution for mosquitoes!
In one pot I just have Mint.

The larger one has an orange smell. The smaller one is the mint that you find in most grocery stores.

In this pot, I have Eucalyptus and a Geranium Citron plant.

Time will tell if this works.

I also bought this hanging plant as a floral wall between where we usually sit outside and the neighbours.
Once again, I have no idea the name of this flower.


This is what my garden now looks like:





When it is stops raining, I will post some updated pics.
Hope you are all having a great day!
