Some annuals planted on Saturday

The yellow plant at the far right is actually a perennial called globe flower, or Trollius europaeus. I hope it does well there because since looking it up I've discovered it prefers more boggy soil than I have. I did add a shovel full of peat to the hole when I planted it so we'll see what happens. It was a spontaneous purchase I made on Saturday when I went back to Home Depot to buy more peat moss. The sedum at the bottom of the frame was planted last year. I planted the red gerbera daisies on Saturday as well as the white verbena. The basket-of-gold was transplanted from the far edge of the garden. You can't see it very well in this shot but there is also some portulaca which seemed very delicate as I planted it but which is supposed to be pretty hardy. I'm hoping it does well on the edges of the garden where it tends to be a bit drier. There is also some pink thrift. I'm kind of doubting it's location so close to the very warm reds and yellows. I may move it closer to the front of the garden where I've planted some creeping phlox and a white cinquefoil. Directly behind these plants is a very large purple and yellow iris. Not my favorite but it's been there awhile. I believe my mom got the original from my aunt and hers might have actually come from my late grandmother's property (which now belongs to my aunt). Anyway, I divided the iris last year into several smaller plants which are doing nicely on the shady side but this one got huge again. It doesn't look any smaller than it did last year!

I helped my friend Linda shop for landscaping flowers this afternoon. Unfortunately, I wasn't of much assistance. Gardening has never been my strongpoint (although I do have a greenthumb with houseplants). I couldn't tell a coleus from a gardenia or differentiate between annual and perennial.
Ultimately, she found what suited here fancy while I just nodded blankly and said things like "Yeah, that's pretty".
I ended up buying some English Ivy for myself and an African Violet for my Mom. I subsequently blew $14.00 on plants and accessories. But that's how it is when I'm out shopping with Linda-I have to buy what she's buying. It's like a compulsion. I'm beginning to understand how this shopping thing works with women, and why its so appealing.
