It was so nice today! Didn’t do much except for a little weeding. Last weekend I planted all the veggies in the raised beds but they’re not much to look at right now. I didn’t have it together to do seedlings so I bought a bunch of things including: 4 tomato plants, kohlrabi, kale, cabbage, Vidalia onion, and my favorite green, arugula.
The lawn is again looking like crap: lots of dandelions and weeds; I really don’t know what to do about it! In any case, once you look past the lawn, here’s a shot of the foundation plantings, a couple of hosta and a hydrangea I bought a number of years ago at the Native Plant sale and moved to this spot a year or two ago. It’s doing much better here.
Heading back toward the pergola (which I love!).
A couple views from the patio (under the pergola). One of my fave early-blooming native plants: Prairie Smoke.
And I love the contrast in color with this shrub (although I don’t remember what it is!).
We just moved the bench to this spot in front of one of the basement windows. It’s right across from the oak tree and is a nice spot next to the hydrangeas and still a little secluded in the garden.
Another shot of our metal garden sculpture, Purple Coneflower, in its latest spot.
And finally a close-up of our fountain with a brief visit from Mr. Sparrow.
