Garden Pictures

It was a beautiful day today so I got a bit of garden work done.   Here was the yard a few weeks ago.

Today I worked on one of the beds along the fence.   Getting it ready to plant but turning over the soil, raking out the rocks, and digging out tons of roots and weeds.   I added edging along the fence to keep the neighbors weedy grass from growing in.   Here is that bed.

I transplanted a few more fens and hosta around the few shrubs that I was able to salvage. .

They look pretty bad now but next year they will be looking great.

The hosta along the drive look pretty good

Teddy supervised the transplanting. For some reason he didn’t want to have his picture taken today.

The real stars of the “old” garden this week are the lilies.

Some quilt updates next time

Happy Summer

    Looking good! You know, if you proceed to working on the neighbors yard when you are done with your two, then you wouldn’t have to worry about their weedy grass! Just a suggestion…..:)

    Teddy may not have wanted his picture taken but he sure looks like he’s smiling. Yard is looking great. Flowers so lovely and so are the butterflies.
    It’s Soooooo hot and Dry here and, there is water limiting. They have people driving around at night looking for water being used on the wrong date so that they can fine folks.
    There’s an ocean full of water and they are in a drought. But you are not having an issue at all😊.

    Your lilies have so many blooms per stem. My lilies (just planted in the fall) only had a few. Will there be more blooms as the years go by?
