busy, busy, busy
I've been so busy, between work, and the yard. With my sale coming up, I'm in a deadline to get the yard in shape, besides digging and dividing and potting enough plants for the sale. So my post are going to be brief, as I don't even have time to read all the blogs on my list, But I'll try to catch up.
But here's a couple of pics.
First up, in full bloom, is a large shrub called Rose Tree of China. Nearly 10 ft tall with pink carnation shaped blooms.
Next up I have a miniature Hosta called Golden Tiara around a young London Planetree. As the tree has gotten bigger, it was pushing the Hostas out of the ground. So I edged out farther around the tree, and replanted them farther out. That should work well for several more years. Do you see the Hostas are just coming up? I've said, we've had a late spring this year!
And finally, the last pic is Dwarf Cattails in our pond. Last summer it got infested with grass, so pulled it out, pulled the Cattails apart, and replanted good ones back in the pot.
Any gardeners out there know there's always maintenance, even in perennial gardens.
And as soon as the sun comes up, I'll be back out in the yard for a short while until I have to go to work at 9.
Oh, and Chris has made it into the final 3 on Idol! YAA!
