Martha...you sound just like me! Spring arrives and we suddenly have more "take-outs" because I cannot drag myself in to prepare dinner. Sometimes, I don't come in until it's too dark to see outside...my husbands just laughs. Your gardens are stunning....love your photos!
"Thanks Charlotte and Lorraine. These astilbes and ferns are against the north side of the house, so they are in shade most of the day. Lorraine, you're right that astilbes (and ferns) will scorch if they get too much hot sun."
