bergenia windfall

it was like 
...winning the lottery 
...manna from heaven 
...a stroke of good luck in april !?!

a long-time friend called to say that her street is going to be upgraded 
and that she will be losing her front boulevard.  
(not to worry - she assured me, the street is going to look great!!!)

then she asks, "do you need some bergenias ?
if you want them- come and dig them up and take them away!"
i rallied up my troop, and with shovel in hand -off we went to bergenia heaven.
did i mention that my friend is a goddess of the garden?
everything she plants just seem to thrive and multiply...
her section of the boulevard was packed with the healthiest crop of bergenias!!

we filled the back of our sedan with as much as we could carry 
and then we spent a good portion of our weekend, in our own yard, 
digging and planting our windfall.

  poor harlow
"when are we going for that walk???"
after all the plants were is in the ground, we were so dirty and tired.
but it was all worth it... the bergenias look beautiful in the garden.

ian is back to work this monday morning...
but guess where i'm going ?????
miraculously, i found some more empty spots in the yard.
so i'm off to save more bergenias from going to the dump !!!

wishing you a lovely monday
