First Summer Project

I wasn’t intending for this to be my first summer project, but with the wet ground from yesterday’s rain, and the cool morning temperatures, I didn’t think there would be a better time.

The mountain laurels have outgrown the small bed we made for them years ago, so I expanded it by pulling up about two feet of grass all around the bed.  It took around four hours.  I am exhausted, but think it looks a lot better.

Spring Flowers!

Winter is finally firmly in the rear view mirror, and the first bright blooms of spring are popping up.

A Time of Hope

After such a cold winter, we are more than ready for spring.  Every day, I walk the path of my gardens looking to see what new sprouts I see.

Copper Canyon Daisies

This is my third or fourth year with these daisies.  The first year, they bloomed beautiful, but nothing since.  I was afraid we would miss out on another year, but lo and behold, in the last week, they started to really shine.

Double Purple Devil's Trumpet

My new Datura bloomed for the first time this evening.  I was so excited, especially since I just planted it a few weeks ago.  I have been diligently watering it, and watching the blooms form, and then the last few nights, I have been going out to see if it had unfurled.  Finally tonight, I got to see it for the first time.  It is so beautiful!!!
