Crystal's Wicked Garden 2017






Saturday morning I spent several hours "spring cleaning" my Wicked Garden. Sadie helped me, sort of. She gave me as much help as a dog can give, she watched! I think she enjoyed the outdoor time and sunshine as much as I did, it was a beautiful day. After cleaning up the garden I went plant shopping. That's one of my favorite things to do. I went to Red Butte Garden's annual plant sale,  the garden center at Smith's Marketplace, Western Garden, Millcreek Garden, Home Depot and Glover Nursery. I had such a great time hunting for unusual plants, black flowers, wicked sounding plant names, toxic plants and black foliage. I will probably add to this during the summer but here is a list of my 2017 Wicked Garden plants so far:
