Garden Tuesday - Candytuft

Candy Tuft Candytuft.  Love it.

Can you find Smudge? I use it to edge most of my flower beds.  Smudge approves.

Flower bed That pile of green on my sidewalk?  Weeds.  Already.

I just love candytuft also. Smudge and I are in agreement. Ours isn't up yet because it's still to cold...but neither are the weeds.

Yours blooms way before mine..mine is a self deeding annual here..Lucky you..Hope all is well.

The candytuft is gorgeous. The weeds - oh the weeds. It's a full-time job, isn't it?

Jacqueline said...

I'm going to look out for that, it looks lovely. Does it take much care and cutting back. I hate when I don't give plants enough love and they go woody.

Kat said...

What a pretty walk-way. Yep, the dreaded weeds come with all the pretty stuff too.

Paula said...

Candy tuft - luv it; weeds - not so much! Thinking of you today!

Hi Pam, I love the Candytuft... We have some up here --and I think I showed it in a recent post.

I do think that I'll cut it back in the fall... I like seeing it bloom closer to the ground --and I think it will do better. I have read that cutting it back 1/3rd will make it fuller next year.

Hugs,
Betsy

I'm anxious to hear if everything's OK.

I see that darling Smudge! What a cutie.

Oh Pam, I love Candytuft as well ~ even if were ugly, I'd adore it for it's name alone!

It's so nice to see yours blooming already, you must be in a warmer climate than me... ours are barely opening and I can't wait.

I hope you're doing well! xo

Candytuft? So that's what's growing back by my Zen garden. I forgot what I had planted, actually don't remember putting it there, but they sure are pretty at the moment.

I love candytuff with it's lovely scent. Snails are my problem right now, well weeds too.
Hope that all is well.

What a beautiful walk! I miss having a garden, I even miss all the hard work.

a good yarn said...

Bear in mind that weeds are the only reliable plants in our gardens.

My candytuft is just now starting to bloom. It's so pretty, I wish it lasted longer.
