It’s green, green, green around here! I love it!
These are the lilacs on the neighbor’s bush. The house was vacant for all of last year, so I hacked down the bush because it was so overgrown. It didn’t bloom much this year, but there were some.
One last tulip to show:
This is an Aleppo fringed tulip. The only one that came up.
The burning bush. Good thing I bought the dwarf variety, right?
Needs a haircut this weekend.
The rest of the green, green shade garden:
Closer look at the bleeding hearts:
Nature is just so cool!
Lily of the valley!
Every year I marvel at the awesomeness of this little flower.
Back to the sunny side.
I am pretty excited about my bearded iris this year – I am going to have so many blooms! I have another color that will be coming up as well. I have had the other iris for 3 years, but it hadn’t bloomed and so I moved it last fall and now I have a bloom that is coming!
I did lose a rose bush, though. Surprisingly, it was the knockout rose that is behind these irises. I thought it might make it, but it did not. That was the one plant I thought was tougher than all the rest. I have to replace it, but I will just get one of those cheap $12 knockouts at Lowe’s. I don’t want to put in a really nice rose and then want to take it with when we move.
This weekend is working on the tippy pots and the other containers. Have a good Memorial Weekend!
