The Gardener is way Happy!!
You know that saying "If momma ain't happy nobodies happy" Well this gardener is happy. It's been too long getting back on my feet. This week in the garden alot has been going on and I'm slowly but surely coming around to tend to everything the way it should be taken care of.
There is another area of the backyard that needs attention and that's the fern and hosta area that is older that needs to be redesigned and extended (photo above). And one of my favorite show pieces in the garden is my beautiful "Hydrangea" shrub. My kids gave me this shrub Mothers Day in "91" and it was pink and when we moved we brought it with us and the soil here turned it purple blue, pink and other shades it's just beautiful. The big mop heads are 12" across.
There are so many beautiful flowers in my garden and I could sit here all day and upload images to look at.
Sunday I took plants over for a friend and helped her plant them and received some in return. I stopped on the way home and bought some plants from a lady selling them at her house. Her gardens are just breath-taking and I admire her work, so I stopped and bought a few new for the garden. Clary Sage, Foxgloves (Don't know why I don't have any). Really cool Coleus, and a plant that the leaves smell like licorice "Sunny Agastache" I'm dying to see the flowers. I already have one that's blue called "Summer Sky". I also picked up some mint and a lilac. So much to do and plant. I'm so excited I'm better now so I can get back out and get dirt under my nails who cares about getting dirty again.
So I'll wrap it up until tomorrow. Wow, everyday is something new in our gardens, don't you just love that feeling of accomplishment of getting stuff to live!! I just love this time of year. I hate the humidity but I love gardening and can't get enough!!!
So thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world. Peace Out and Happy Gardening from Maryland Zone7.
