I took a bunch of pictures of the buds, 'cause I was so excited over just that, and then they bloomed the next day.
I love them.
I planted them in a pot, then sprinkled annual Candytuft seeds, that are starting to bloom now as well.
Don't mind the horrible brown spots in the grass.
That's clearly where The Dog chooses to pee EVERY TIME.
The rose that was here when I bought the house is starting its second bloom.
I love it, too.
Notice anything new in the background?
I took my Variegated Willow out of the pot and put him in the ground.
Don't mind the neighbor's Rhody that I still haven't deadheaded.
My old ladder used to sit there, so I had to find a new home for it.
This'll do for now.
My hope is, once that trellis in the pot is completely covered in Black-Eyed Susan Vine, that area won't look so cluttered.
I still may move the Shepard's hook.
It was already there and I was too lazy at the time.
Did you see what's goin' on next to the ladder?
Buds on the PeeGee Hydrangea!!!
Mine is 'Limelight' and it's one of my favorite plants in the yard.
Anyone know what this is?
It comes up in this pot every year and I have no clue where it came from.
Clearly a bulb of some kind, but I'm stumped.
And last, this isn't much to look at yet, but I finally got my old birdcage planted.
I've been talkin' about doin' it forever and it is officially done.
I used moss my mom got out of the forest to line it.
She also gave me some Calibrachoa babies that had reseeded at her house, so I stuck a few of those down in it.
We'll see how it does.
Off to sit on the patio with a glass of beer.
I love summer.
