|Daylilies are popping up everywhere.|
I have a bat weathervane in the raised bed. I let my moneywort go and it is taking over this bed. In other words, Jenny is creeping.
I have a lot of Lily of the Valley plants ready to plant along the side of the house. Today, the workers are building my outdoor sink in that area so all of them are in pots right now waiting to be planted. I am also enlarging the patio and putting in a new pergola so that area will be busy for a while. I'm installing a new pizza oven which I will be learning to use over this Summer. Everyone keeps reminding me of how much they love pizza!
My roses are just days away from blooming and there will be a profusion of them when they do. I will take pics when they are all open.
I suddenly have mushrooms everywhere.
Here's a big one under one of my bleeding heart bushes.
And there are lots of them around my roses.
There are fake ones too. I've been looking for Boston ferns for my planters but hola, they are expensive this year. I need about 20 of them and I just won't pay 30.00 dollars for one fern. I am holding out until the prices come down.
I did plant some of the lily of the valley plants around the potting shed. The squirrels ate my old ones. These are some of my favorite perennials and were my mother's favorites too. I;m hoping they will eventually naturalize.
More daylilies and horseradish and rhubarb in the background.
I bought these old shutters at a yard sale 15 years ago and never found a way to use them. I finally decided to install them on my potting shed.They will be painted and the shed door will be refinished and then I will hang them on either side.
My espaliered apple trees along the fence were hit by frost so there will be no apples this year.
I will show you picks of the patio area once it's finished.
I sat outside last night trying to watch the eclipse but it was cloudy so I missed it. There was a nice cool breeze blowing and it blew through the trees and made the sounds of waves on a shore. It made me think of Hawaii and it helped me sleep better.
