Worked in the garden today.
I worked for several hours today in the back garden. Pulling weeds, trimming plants that were over grown. I filled the large green bin, and what a feeling of accomplishment I felt!!! Because of the really rainy season, seems like every time I wanted to do something in the yard, it was too wet. Finally feel I have the upper hand!! After watering and putting everything away, I went to the local OSH and got some plants since it was a no tax weekend. I will plant most of them tomorrow. Yea, I love to garden. My first dahlia bloomed and it is a beauty, see picture above. It was a completely different type than last years. I still have some others yet to bloom, can't wait to see what they will be like. Peonies are all but gone, the rain and wind really did them end this year!!! Sweet peas have also are gone. Next year I will do a better job with them. I got some autumn sage to plant, the hummingbirds love these plants, my one has about had it, too woody and old, so this will be good. Got some more geraniums too, pink of course, my favorite color. One rhododendron and a kangaroo paw. It is a new pink color as well, the other one I had a long time ago was a yellow/gold color. Well, it seems I have made a bit of work for myself. I will let you know how it goes. I also have an Antique club meeting/installation luncheon to attend. It should be lots of fun. Antique Rose
