I bought this little beauty this past weekend
because a bloggy friend so GENEROUSLY shared some cuttings of her white clematis
I KNOW!! HOW LUCKY AM I????
so I wanted to take very good care of them
and planted them to the left
she told me "feet in shade, head in sun"
so the feet are in the shade of the lillies and violets
and the head will be in the sun once they get a little taller
I bought a purple clematis you see on the right as a little friend for it
hoping to see good things come of it
I also staked this guy as he was getting a little tall and heavy
this is hubs acid free tomato
a new euny plant for the side garden
next year I will clear out more of the violets and put them under the red maple
I love them even though they are a weed and the previous owner did too
those other thingies are the remnants of the purple hyacinths
then I proceeded to the front garden and added more red petunias
also added splashes of blue salvia and white salvia for fun
a red white and blue theme I guess
so far it looks pretty good
hoping it will fill in so that the cats cant get in there
they have been sleeping on my daffodils and iris and lillies in there
and using the mulch as a bathroom
can you tell I LOVE it???
naw.......not much LOL
a citronella plant to repel mosquitos
some action happening FINALLY in the pots I planted a while ago
I am thinking lettuce was one of them
and maybe the herbs?
will tell better when they get a little older
I planted in "rows" so I would know they are not weeds LOL
and I pruned this guy
not too much as only one third is the rule
but a better shape anyway
goal here is to keep them rounder and shorter
so I can pick the lilacs and have more of them
in the Spring
Did I mention I LOVE my gardens????
and my bloggy friends???
I DO, I DO!!!
