I'm taking a break from the garden to eat dinner, watch the news and post my latest garden photos. But, on second thought, I'm going to mute the news. No explanation needed, right? Tomorrow my garden buddies are coming over so I'm trying to get things looking good but despite my all-day efforts, perfection is futile. There's always more to do than there is time or energy to do it.
|I zoomed-in for this photo of Clemmy 'Ville de Lyon' blooming up high on the arbor.|
|My hens and chicks are apparently happy that it's spring.|
|My garden buddy Carol gave me this small 'Tri-Color' Beech. |
Despite missing a third color, I love the bright pink edging. Silene 'Roly's Favorite' is equally smitten.
|Last year I almost lost my Ninebark 'Coppertina' because it was planted in a|
really hot, dry location. I moved it early this spring.
It looks happy now but time will tell.
|My yellow/chartreuse and maroon foliage border is looking great this year.|
|Looking down on Joe, 'Little Joy' Joe Pye, that is. I love the maroon centers.|
|I love the mottled new foliage on 'Rose Glow' Berberis.|
|My daughter Beth's lettuce. I can't recall the name of it.|
|Sambucus 'Black Negligee' and Rosa 'Knock Out' are an oversize duo|
thanks to my reluctant pruning earlier this spring. Oops.
|My new tree fern has a new frond untwirling!|
|I always love how the Mexican Feather Grass captures the light.|
|I thought I'd share a photo of my weed. Just kidding. It's not marijuana.|
It's a small Helleborus foetidus I got for a buck at a sale a few weeks ago.
Well, as much as I'd like to take a shower and go to bed, there's still daylight and more work to do in the garden. So...
