GARDEN BEGINNINGS

The beginnings, only because as summer wears on the plantings will fill out the beds so much more. But as it is now, we have all the plants and flowers in. Grow my lovlies, grow!

Remember this from early spring? Snow mold on the lawn.


Much different today!


We got some "Mini Roses" this year. Red, pink, yellow and a variegated yellow/red.






This one's my favourite:



There's quite a variety of colour and texture and we tried to keep it in an "unordered order". Bushes, shrubs, perennials and the rest filled in with annuals.





What was a nice little surprise was finding these Dwarf Lavender plants. I love 'em.



Here you can see both of the "main" beds. They are completely different in shape and plantings.



African Daisy:



This year I begged for Lilacs. I love them, and the scent of them. I got 3 Dwarf Lilacs. Two (purple and blush white) were planted out back, and this little pink one is out front. It will only grow about 3 feet tall.




In addition to the existing Snow In Summer and red Dianthus, we added some more Japanese Blood Grass and some Geraniums.




We stayed up until 11 p.m. getting all the annuals in on a Friday night. And I took these shots the next morning, on Saturday. A couple of hours later we got a nice thunder storm and hard rain (which was great for the plants) but with it came about 5 minutes of hail. We were lucky as I don't see that we've lost anything. We've had about 3 MORE thunderstorms since!






Me week vacation at home is of course going waaaay too quickly, it's already Thursday! I hope you're all having a good week, take good care of each other.

PEACE!
Love Jude
