Not much quilting or crafting or primming (is that a word?) going on around here lately. As I have mentioned before, as long as the weather holds out, I'll be in the yard. 8 hours yesterday and I am paying for it today! I think that other than cutting the grass and keeping the garden weed-free, I am finished for the season. Yeah, right!
This bed hasn't filled in all the way yet but I just had to take a picture of the lily while it was blooming.
The Computer Geek bought this for me for Mother's Day two years ago. It had one stalk when he gave it to me. Last year it had 3 stalks. This year 7!
It has gotten so big that it blocks the view of the hanging basket (see the first picture) as we pull into the driveway.
This is a picture of my herb bed. There is two kinds of basil, onions, chives, oregano, rosemary (the big plant in the back on the right), dill, cilantro, parsley, two kinds of mints (in the old ammo box), and chamomile. There are some other things in there besides herbs......like the watermelon and canteloupe. We had bought so many plants that we ran out of ready space and stuck things in anywhere we could.
We wound up with 18 tomato plants, 50 pepper plants (Dear Hubby LOVES hot peppers), squash, zuchinni, lettuce, cucumbers, watermelon, canteloupe, blueberries, and raspberries. The most we have ever planted in one season.
This is a picture of the front of the garden. Those are almost all daylillies. I took a shovelful from my mother-in-law's house 10 years ago and this is what it has become. This is a PORTION of what it has become. There are daylillies stuck in just about every bed I have. These need to be separated, too. Anyone need daylillies?
I'll post a picture next month after they all start blooming. The double knockout rose on the far left has already bloomed once but has new blooms on it. There is also a new bee balm plant in there somewhere. Hope all decide to bloom at the same time. It will be beautiful!
Thanks for visiting my garden.
