Haven't posted in a while...been busy digging! I took a walk this morning to see how things are looking...it's coming along, and I'm feeling proud! Lol* It's not quite a cottage garden yet, but it's getting there. Some of my neighbors mentioned in conversation that they didn't like flowers...I bet they're loving the weedy view now huh? Lol* Will take some more pictures when the sun comes out...
Sweet peas are blooming! Yay!!! I debated on ripping these out, but I'm so glad I didn't. The picture just doesn't do the color justice...it looks fuschia here, but it's truly darker than this, more like a burgundy/wine rose color. Oh so pretty. These were 35 cent packs of seeds too! Lol*
Here's some new plantings at the end of the drive...rudbeckia are the two in the front, and in the back some gooseneck I bought for 50 cents at a yard sale. Still have a couple more of those in pots that need to be planted too.
Here's the delphinium which is now long gone after the rain we got last week. Wasn't it stunning? My MIL picked up a couple very young cherry blossom delph's, one is budding...hope it blooms this year! I've also since extended this flower bed...it's about double the size is as shown here...don't ask my why I planted this in between russian sage. Lol* I'm not moving the delph's but the sage might be another plant Dad is inheriting.
Sorry looking foxgloves...one Dad gave me for helping him paint, and one I picked up from Walmart...they are in full sun (from morning until about 2 or 3pm), hope that's not too much for them?
ORANGE lillies...enjoying them now because when their done they are going to my Dad...so pretty but just a little more orange than I can handle.
