What’s Blooming!

Friday time again!  Boy the time just goes speeding by.  It’s scary sometimes. Work was surprisingly slow today.  I think maybe there are some last minute vacations from people and the physicians before school starts after Labor Day.  That meant I was trying to get things done that I planned for later after I was finished with work.  I’ll be spending a Friday night working, boooo…

Anyway, here is the garden and what’s been going on.

More snapdragons.

My sweet potato vines and half nicely done porch.

There is still half the porch to be finished to the left.  Not sure I will make it by the end of the month, but I will try.

This is the other potted plant on the front porch.  It’s called Calibrachoa – or Million Bells if you don’t want to figure how how to pronounce that.

My sedum continues to get darker.

I’ve almost got a marigold bloom!

Maybe this will be open by September?  :mrgreen:

A couple random asters here and there.

The shade bed where I talked about getting rid of the ferns?  Here it is before I got in there.

Afterwards.  All ready for planting!

I tried to keep as many lily of the valley’s as I could, but their roots were all intermingled with the fern roots, but that’s okay.  They spread and will come back in short order.

I am getting some tall Astibles to put in place of the ferns.  I am thinking Bressingham Beauty.  It’s purple 😀

I also neatened up the rest of the shade garden.

It really needed some weeding.

I’ve got to work tonight to make up for all the garden fun today.

    Those marigolds missed the message that they’re not actually supposed to bloom *after* frost hits, silly flowers 😉

    As always, your garden is gorgeous. Have fun beautifying it even more!

    I say this every year…and I will probably say it again next year. I love snapdragons! I love to show little children how they work. They are the funniest little flowers!

    Hi Lori! I love your flowers, but your house is adorable too. We have a big porch like that too. We love it! We sit out there in the evening with the neighbors, drinking beers and iced teas. Do you love your porch like that too?
