Flowers… Flowers… and More Flowers

Flowering time is pretty much at its peak!  Yep its MID JUNE! Normally by now  all the early and mid flowering species are done and I’d be looking at psitts and minors!  Not this year… So not too much say, I’m just posting some pics that I took yesterday or the day before.

    Absolutely beautiful. I didn’t think they would have survived the winter that we had.

    Wonderful! I am so glad your plants are doing well. Your garden is an inspiration!

    After 10+ years growing Sarracenia purpurea in my small bog garden I am giving up on them. The squirrels have been relentless in their digging these past couple of years and none of the plants have survived their efforts this spring. They aren’t digging up the plants, they are burying their food supply and the plants are in the way. I may cover the area with chicken wire just below the surface and start again. I have two species of cranberry that have filled in nicely and for the most part the squirrels are avoiding that area, not enough open ground for them to dig in.

      Yep, I feel your pain, as do all the other outdoor Sarracenia growers who have those lovely rodents around!!!! I find there are really two times of year when they are really an issue. Once is in the spring as the look for their cache’s that they buried the year before, then again in the autumn when they “squirrel away” their stuff for the spring! Try putting cayenne pepper around your garden… that works for a lot of rodents… the other thing is maybe cover your bog over with a frame and chicken wire in the spring and fall… You could also look up a good recipe for Brunswick Stew! (the recipe I’ve seen… the first ingredient – 2 plump squirrels)
