IT'S CONCERT TIME!
Our first concert is this Sunday and our season opener is "ASSORTED AFFAIR". These talented musicians are a perennial (sorry - plant brain!) favourite. Visit their facebook page to hear a sample of their great music.
Concerts are from 2pm - 4pm, Earthbound time (wink). We will have DELICIOUS baking from EVERGREEN LODGE in Oliphant and coffee, tea, and lemonade available for your enjoyment.
Front yard's ready and the weather forecast is great!
THE PEONIES are out, that means it's officially summer, to our way of thinking! The buzz of bees, the soft drift of butterflies and the unending chatter of birds is the current music out in the garden. These long days are so busy, and after a long, cold winter the world at Earthbound doesn't seem to want to miss a single hour of sunlight.
The garden has had many visitors this month, despite the rain and the cold.
Recent visitors to the garden! Do you like the new Lake Earthbound? Our latest new feature - oh, and by the way,
POND PLANTS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AT EARTHBOUND!
THIS WEEK'S FEATURE PLANT
Check our site every Monday this month to learn more about our favourite plants. They're chosen for their hardiness, value to the garden environment, or just because they're funky and we're smitten! We'd love to hear more about what your current favourites are!
This is a stately plant with HUGE palmate leaves, and HUGE plumes of creamy white flowers. If you want to make a statement in the partially shady garden, or need some structure plants to build around - this is your guy!
A stately plant that looks rather tropical because of its size (it grows to between 3' -6'!) and palm shaped leaves (which will grow to 2' easily!) , rodgersia will grow in full sun, part shade, or dappled light. Ours does beautifully in very partial sun adding interest to the front garden bed throughout the summer. Because of the heavily textured leaves, this garden beauty is seldom bothered by insects, including the slugs which love to hang out in any moist, semi-shaded spot!
We love this plant!
