The path is getting close to being done:
This angle looks like a big wrench or something 🙂 John has put down the filler and stones. Now he has to find the loose areas to pack in sand. The maple trees have been dropping all those tiny green things that are all over the bed now. It’s a mess. Next is putting the slate down under the bench.
New tulips this week. This is a double flowering one called Carnival de Nice:
The double tulips are sometimes called peony tulips because they look like them (Captain Obvious).
This one is Cilesta:
The Repel All spray seemed to work since the squirrels didn’t get the rest of these. Yippee!
Apricot impression tulips:
Queen of the Night and Catherine:

My neighbors or any passing motorists probably think I’m pretty weird always out in the garden beds crouched down taking pictures.
My fringed bleeding heart is blooming, even though it is really tiny!
“Regular” bleeding hearts will die out after blooming, but the fringed one will stay green all summer long and bloom, too. I have some of the others, but they aren’t even close to blooming yet. One of them is white, too! Can’t wait to see that one.
More weeding to do this weekend in the garden bed to get it ready for planting.
