Hubby and I are trying to make our yard/garden more low maintenance...since we're getting older...and lazier, but it doesn't seem to be working...things are running wild!
Here are some photos I took when I came back from thrifting this morning:
No, it's not a whale...it's just one of the boulders by the driveway. Only about 2/3rds of it is showing; the rest is under the wild muscadine vine, running over from our neighbor's yard.. :(
Speaking of my neighbor, why is his Hydrangea bush so HUGE?
He never feeds or waters it and, it's about to take over his house...and his Dish.
I'm not going to show you my Hydrangeas...they're pitiful!
Our fig tree has gone wild this year. They usually aren't ripe till August. Can you believe I picked a bowl full after I finished taking the photos?
...wild black berries all over the yard.,,we've been battling them for years...
...little "berries" on the wild Sassafras...
...here's one more wild thing, a Rose of Sharon... they just pop up all over the garden, and we pull them like weeds. This one is tree size now. If you look closely, you can see a little honey bee on it. I was really surprised, because we don't see many honey bees any more.
Just beneath the Rose of Sharon, the Oak Leaf Hydrangea is turning pink...
...Day lilies... I don't remember the name of this one.
Heading back to the house, you can see my Hens and Chicks are multiplying like crazy. I probably should divide them, but I like the lushness of them packed together...chick by chick...
I hope this mixed pot will last the summer. I love the purple petunias, with the creeping jenny, and the little white...whatcha-ma-call-its.
I'm glad you stopped by. Are you ready for a glass of tea?
Please, stop by Alison's party, and see all the wonderful gardens and then to Jennifer Rizzo for her garden linky party.
