I got my flower bed that I created a few years back all weeded and I planted a few annuals in there. A couple geraniums and a few marigolds...flowers that the deer will leave alone but I do think the deer may be behind all this identity theft that's going on...just sayin'. In the back are my Japanese Iris which are a deep purple when they bloom but they're not ready yet.
Those are old roofing tiles I put under the rocks so I wouldn't have to weed whack around them...smart huh? My mailbox is across the street so now I just go over and water once in awhile. I put the wire netting around the post because I had a clematis that I planted there but it didn't make it. On the right are a couple exotic day lilies but the Japanese Iris seems to be taking over so I might have to either dig up some of that Iris or transplant the day lilies.
I was surprised to see my strawberries come back and especially my parsley since it was out all Winter in a container but come back they did and with GUSTO! The strawberry has already set runners into this bed which is fine with me as one can never have enough berries!
See the berry and the flowers...oh yum...I can already taste them and they're SO MUCH better than the ones from the store and much cheaper, I might add!
See that reddish mulch? I put that in last year....it's rubber! Yep, pricier per bag but it doesn't disintegrate and it doesn't fade and it's a God send for me! I couldn't keep up with the other cedar mulch and by mid-summer it was all bleached out and looked terrible and I had to keep buying and buying it. This stuff is WONDERFUL! I highly recommend it and it's recycling tires!
After all that weeding I needed to bring some of those pretties inside to enjoy.....
The wind or something had knocked over my Iris (or are they Gladioli, I can never keep them straight) in the back yard so I clipped them and brought them inside to enjoy. I also cut some of my roses which are going gangbusters. They have Black Spot but it doesn't seem to bother the blooms which is all I care about anyway.
And finally............as a reward for ALL my hard work.........a cool one Eddy! Don't mind if I do.....
Give me a nice cold Blue Moon with a slice of orange if you don't mind and remember.....Don't Drink and Blog........yeah right! LOL! Have a great Saturday night!
