This weekend I got the deck water proofed…doesn’t sound like much but it’s very time consuming. I was hoping it wouldn’t rain overnight, but the rain just started. Hopefully the stuff will be OK. I didn’t use a stain, just a water proofer, so maybe…
What I really want to do though is to dig in the dirt, to pot flowers and plant. I had to make myself do the deck first…then I get to dig and pot! I did settle for planting these moonflowers that I started a month or so ago.
I love late spring and early summer…
Looks like my hydrangea is going to bloom soon! It got a bad frost bit earlier so I was worried about it being ok.
The peonies are pretty this year…
Funny story about this iris…a friend gave it to me years ago for my water garden. Last winter I took it out of the water garden, thinking that I wasn’t going to do the water garden this year. So I was going to plant it in the ground somewhere…but never got around to doing that.
It was a mild winter, but this plant sat out of the water on the edge of the concrete drive for months. It was in a plastic pot, but that’s all the protection it had. I noticed a green shoot a few weeks ago, decided to keep the water garden this summer, and I fertilized it and stuck it back in the water. Ta da!! It is blooming happily away, and this year is the best it has ever looked. Maybe I will expose it to the elements like this every winter!
I have two new clumps of daisies in the yard this year too! I love me a good old fashioned daisy.
I hope you are having a great spring!
