Lovely corner of your garden.

Thanks Bernieh, this was the first garden bed I started about 15 years ago. My obsession with gardening started here, all because I wanted to have a birdbath in the yard.....;-)

What a lovely scene. I've got caladium planted now for three months and they haven't come up. Any advice? I even popped one out to make sure they weren't rotting, just green tips and sitting there.

Appreciate your comments Sanbaz !
GT, caladiums will not do much growing until the nighttime temps stop dropping below 65 to 70 degrees F. They want it hot, hot, hot. That's why I don't put my tubers I've overwintered in the ground until the last week of of May. Being they are so late to emerge I always wind up buying several that have been started in a greenhouse to satisfy me until mine come back . The ones I planted this May are just starting to get some size on them now.

Thanks for the info. I was really wondering. We get into the night 50's still, I'll have to bring them in to start.

Best of luck with them ! They will be worth the extra trouble, they are so beautiful when leafed out.

Yes Sue, this was the beginning ! For better or worse, It took hold and I let my imagination run wild. It's been a wonderful ride !

And WHAT imagination !! Long may the ride continue !! x

You just got my imagination going to. I'm ready to plant bee balm behind my birdbath like yours. For some reason I planted mine in front of the bird bath and it hides it. Will move it as soon as it get's going. Thanks
