I am so excited! I thought that I would show you the dainty ones in the shade today. I got the lily of the valley last year from another aunt who warned me that they would take over given the chance. Doesn't matter, I'll deal with it when it happens, but look! is it not pretty?!! I also have bleeding heart, the "wild" geranium, and a trillium that I also got from my aunt that was growing like crazy in her woods.
It's sad that they don't last all summer. Though I have seen inpatients sprouting up from where I had them last year. We will see if they can make it. Now I am off to check out some fencing as the chickens love all the soft, moist areas too!
