The joys of gardening…. I do like to tend to my garden (which has been really hard to even get started this summer), but I admit I can sometimes be very lazy about actually “tending” to it, I just hate weeding and sometimes it gets the best of me to get motivated. I actually got out the shovel, the rake and bags of earth to start a project that I was supposed to do last year, oh well. I spent hours at the garden center trying to pick what I envisioned to be my little forest of greenery and flowers, well my mature garden, which in the pictures will look so different in 2-3 years. I usually stick to planting perennials, only annuals for a few pots here and there. Digging and turning the earth is hard work! I am pooped, and my space was only about 20 feet x 3 feet. I am pretty happy with the results, but I will have to keep my eye on my greenery (Ferns) since I have more sun shinning on them, then what I had thought back at the garden center. Here’s a few pics to maybe inspire all you gardeners out there!
Awww such a delight to see the flowers in bloom, and more buds appearing in the garden pathways. I don’t know, but I think all this rain has been nice for my garden beds, I sure have been lucky to have gotten away with dragging the hose about so far. Can’t wait for my peonie’s to show their flowery blooms ( my favorite!). The phlox, the grasses, the lilies poking their heads getting ready to show off their fiery orange petals.
I have a variety of hostas in several of my gardens. They are more of a shade loving plant, and usually they have long stem like flowers that bloom
later in the summer.
These guys really enjoy my hostas too…. Oh they can be so annoying nipping at the leaves for their daily snack, BUT they are so CUTE!!
