Another Friday post. That was a rough work week. Phew. Doesn’t look to get better any time soon, either, unfortunately.
One thing that always makes me happy and relieves stress? My garden! Just looking at it makes me happy.
I moved my birdbath from the side shade bed to the middle of the front and really like it there. It even got a good scrubbing 😳
The sun drops are starting to open up. They got pretty beaten down by all the rain this week, so I might need to prop them up.
There are lots of buds, though.
I have some self seeding snapdragons.
I don’t remember what the original color of the parents were several years ago, but each year I get different colors from the seeds that spread. I deadhead these right into the bed and let them go wherever they want.
My first coneflower opened up as well. The hot papaya!
This plant always sends out one early bud and then it will be July for the rest. Not sure why that happens.
John got a lot of the walkway cleared out.
We need to rent a jackhammer for this last section. Whomever poured the concrete actually poured it over the old sidewalk underneath so there are 2 layers stuck together and they won’t break up.
My garden path on the edge to nowhere:
Scentimental rose bush with tons of blooms.
Here is progress on one of the tippy pots. These are pink wave petunias with some lobelia on the bottom.
I saw a couple ladies walking by and pointing towards the garden, and I bet this is what they were pointing at.
These are small mounds of foliage that send up long flower stalks. I moved these last fall and they seem to like this new spot.
I have all my potted plants on the back stoop. I shopped the discount rack at Lowe’s and found some dahlias for $3. Score! They didn’t have blooms on them (which is probably why they were on sale), but you just wait a bit and you get them.
Such a cool color, too.
Pixie was watching me from the back door while I was taking these pictures.
She wants outside so bad!
Finally got the burning bush trimmed. We planted this 5 or 6 years ago as a small gallon plant and look at it today!
It actually was growing over the path. This is the first time we have ever trimmed it.
It’s bloomin’ time, that’s for sure!
