Garden maintenance is a daily chore around here. Everywhere I look there is something that needs to be taken care of. Trimming ivy back is an ongoing task. I love ivy but it sure grows out of control in my gardens. Click for a closer look.
Towards the end of each spring the ivy has covered all of my stone walls.
I literally have to pry it off with a paint scraper. It always looks so much neater when it is stripped away.

Okay...I know...the container garden is out of control. I can't help myself, I just keep planting.
It is winding it's way down the driveway now.
Okra! I haven't had okra in several years so I am very excited for this to grow.
My first red tomato. I picked it this morning.
And where to plant this Tansy? It was given to me for free at the garden center last weekend. I love Tansy but it sure tends to take over the area it is planted in. I need to be very careful where I plant it.
My Hydrangeas are blooming.
They are all the same type and are in the same area but they are different colors.
Blue ones and a pink one on the same plant. The color is determined by the PH of the soil. This is the area where I removed the spiral evergreens so I am guessing they created different Ph's in this area.
