My fruit trees and bushes have never looked so good and full of fruit. Didn't get a pic of the pear tree but check out the blueberries. The bush has more than I've ever seen on it. It will be leaning to the ground soon it will be so heavy.
And the same goes for the peach trees. I expect a lot of good eatable peaches this year. Last year they weren't eatable.
I love this snapdragon and it is a return from last year. I like the softness of the yellow and pinks with the creamy color.
I went shopping this weekend and picked up a few verbena, dianthus, pentas, angelonia, begonia's and a geranium and something else I can't think of right now. I worked on Friday, Saturday and a couple hours on Sunday. I was worn out but was happy when I stepped back and looked at my accomplishments. I didn't get it all done but will work on it during the week after work. I love this time of year. It's busy but a good busy.
I got busy right away and went to cleaning out and planting.
Pentas (yet to be planted)
Angelonia (yet to be planted). This one is new to me but I think I'm gonna like it.
Geranium (yet to be planted). I really do not know why I only bought one except I couldn't hold anymore in my hands. (didn't want to lay them down to get a buggy - I know - if I can't carry anymore I'll spend less money right)
I put down a lot of seeds too. This garden will be filled in before long.
The big picture.
Begonia's coming back from last year. Love when they do this.
I can't wait to see this one filled in. Put down 6 - 6 packs of begonia's here. I think it will add nicely to this partly shady garden.
I moved this hydrangea to the refreshed shade bed here. It was in the front porch garden but it hasn't bloomed in three years. I hope it will be happier here and give a bloom. Otherwise it's days could be numbered.
Potted the mandevilla and placed in the partly shaded garden.
This is my new bleeding heart. I think it will like this spot under the pecan tree. I know you can't miss all those seedlings beside it. The garden is on a slant and all the seeds I put down washed down the hill. Oh well we'll see what happens here.
I also received my three roses from QVC-Cottage Farms Nursery (located right here in Mobile county). Funny I can't go to their location and shop - I have to shop from them online or thru QVC. I'm expecting a few gorgeous roses from the three I ordered. They are only about 4" tall but are expected to be about 3' this year and full grown next year at 4'. The roses are 'Liv Tyler', Rouge Royale, Sweet Promise.
Hope you have a great day and a lovely week.
