Here it is Friday once again and I am linking up with Glenda over at Tootsie Time. How was your week? Mine was as busy as usual with the greenhouse still full of plants. Of course, I have barely touched my garden but I did get about 30 feet weeded. Yes, I can finally get down and get my fingernails dirty after waiting so long after hip surgery. Well, its only been about four months but to this die-hard gardener it has seemed like forever. Of course, my friend Morning Glory was not happy to see me. She has already grown up and twisted around my plants, grrrrr. Now that I am back in the swing (or kneeling pad) of things she will be gone in no time flat.
This weekend is my last sale of vegetable plants.That should get about 20 flats out of the greenhouse. I need room for more tomatoes! Plus I have to do up a few containers for the yard. With such a large garden we don’t do too many containers. Remember all that watering they need, yes. I will be playing around with a few ‘new to me’ found treasures over the next few weeks. I have been on the hunt for the perfect piece of bling to pretty up an old toolbox. Guess what, I found my bling today at the local thrift shop! Hubby kind of looked at me and rolled his eyes, you know the look.
Lets get on with the plants this week. There is so much in bloom but the Irises still are the best this week.
This Iris just opened a couple of days ago and I was so busy I hardly noticed. Bad me!
I love the way this pale lilac coloured Iris looks with Allium. Not that it was planned like that.
Still trying to figure out what to do with this tiny garden smack in the middle of the lawn. It was a disaster of old herbs when we moved in, has been in flowers, a square foot garden for veggies and now its back to flowers. This clay soil just doesn’t grow vegetables well. The garden may just be removed soon and replanted with lawn. We still havent decided.
If the garden stays this fairy is in need of a good coat of paint.
The Peonies are in full bloom and are surrounded by Centaurea montana. As much as I love blue flowers, the Centaurea is a thug in the garden moving a bit too rapidly for my liking.
The Weigela is full of pink flowers and it will continue to bloom for many months. It always has a second flush of flowers later on during summer.
Here ye, here ye, the Roses are blooming! This is early for the Roses to bloom. The shrub Roses are just covered in flowers. Can you say we are in the pink?
The first of the climbing Roses is just about to open. Soon the arbor will be a mass of blooms and the scent, oh, the scent. Can you tell I love my Roses? What I love about my Roses is they all have fragrance and that just makes them even more special.
