Today was perfect garden weather so I spent the day working on that.
I got all the tress and weeds out of the fence along the driveway and at the side of the house.
On the side of the house there were huge overgrown Rose of Sharon plants hiding the large window. I had to dig those out and I found a window well for one of the basement windows.
at the back corner you can see the rest of what was in that bed. Bishops Weed ( Aegopodium podagraria) I hate it! dug it all out and I know it will be back! it is so hard to get rid of…..but I will persist. all gone for now. I think Hostas will go here.
The driveway is in serious need of paving. Here is Teddy taking a stroll on it.
Here is the side yard from the sidewalk.
Once that big tree in the corner is gone there should be plenty of sun and that area behind the rock border will be planted.
Ferns now hang on the front porch.
a few pots as well.
Those Day Lily plants around the porch came from my garden about 10 years ago. I dug them up and gave them to the lady who was renting the house at the time. They are about to bloom. I think they are destined to be moved again. into the front bed with the rock edge.
Teddy went to the groomer today and he was very happy to be clean again…he gets pretty dirty playing outside in his new yard. It doesn’t take him long to get a dirty face….he has it in the dirt all the time sniffing. See the dirt in his beard?
He has a new friend…sort of. The last two days one of the neighbors has walked past with their new dog. A black Giant Schnauzer. She is huge and not full grown yet. They admired each other through the fence. He like being so close to the sidewalk. so much better than just looking out the window.
I will be posting inside pictures soon but I have spent the time in the garden first because the weather was great.
