flowers in the garden
I like a garden the way I like my CQ
full of colors
which may explain a few things
you saw these last time
I have no Idea what kind of roses I have because I saved them from a Home depot dumpster 3 summers ago I have two kinds of tea rose in the front verge garden the yellow and a dusky pink
I love the deep red of these dhalias
and the purple clamatis climbing the west corner of the garage
this little section I was trying to carve out a bigger bit of the lawn but it got to difficult to hack through the clay soil so this is as big as I could make it by hand.
its where the purple butterfly bush and most of the lilies live.
I'm not sure what the red flower is but I love how it contrasts against the purple of the bush and the orange of the lilies
the daisies have taken off this year
I think I am going to have to dig them out and separate them
they are getting too rowdy over there!
the waterbarrel is slowly getting covered by baskets
again I like the contrast of colors
hanging baskets are fun but you have to keep them well watered
a way to help with this I fill the bottom half with packing peanuts to make them lighter and peat moss mixed into the dirt and manure mix i use for them this helps keep the moisture in
here is the deckside
the snowball bush is getting bigger but not big enough to bloom yet and it's too early for the hydrangeas give it a week and they will bloom too
