I got all kinds of new flowers today! We got Stella D'ora Daylilies, a new hydrangea bush and a pale pink peony bush (I think my sticks-in-the-dirt didn't work too well. The hydrangea is starting to peek through, but I want flowers THIS year!), some rosey pink geraniums (they already moved tons to clearance!! Can you imagine? They are full-sun flowers!), some colorful, full-sun lantana (will bloom ALL summer in the HEAT, even in Arkansas) a fern, and a big pot of hot pink flowers to go on the table under the pergola!
We are redoing a couple beds outside, and moving some stuff-little trees, shrubs, and monkey grass (liriope). I think my husband may like to move plants more than me! He looks for projects. ; ) I like the Set-Them-Out kind of plants. If they come in a pretty pot, they can go home with me! (or if I can cut them, and set them on my table) Well, I don't mind planting, jut not in 95 degree temps!
We ended up staying out till after nine trimming trees and shrubs, and I pulled up PILES of ivy from a front bed. I was afraid of it (snakes were in the forefront of my mind), so I'd just left it alone. But, I conquered my fears.
|This is the small pile. Before I was halfway. Ack-Ivy!|
Ok...so, Contest! I am starting a new contest for a white kitchen towel! It can be monogrammed:
