Tulips are safe in the “flower jail”, while daffodils keep guard on the outside. In the lower right-hand corner is a foxglove that is safe on the outside, also.
Last winter, I found many foxglove babies inside of the flower jail. Since they do not need any protection from deer or rabbits, I transplanted many (I think I counted 74) to outer areas. I’m looking forward to many blooms later this summer.
Earlier this week, I transplanted a hellebore outside the ‘jail’, to under some cedar trees. Deer are not supposed to eat them, so I moved a small plant as a test, to learn if my local deer have read the same book 🙂 I know the hyacinths and tulips need the fence for protection.
Sure wish I could move the fence post away from my photo.
These beauties live under an old rhododendron. It had been raining, so the tulips and windflowers are closed.
I was moving hyacinths around, and noticed how well the anemone windflowers are naturalizing themselves. They are so pretty in the bed, but I am now wary that they may take over and overwhelm the violets and wild strawberries that are ground cover.
