Here's what's been happening in our garden.
The impatiens we planted last week in the pine island, have about doubled in size.
They're in front of three boxwoods we transplanted...they had outgrown their pots on the deck.
The huge hosta at the end was transplanted at the same time. It's almost 4 ft. in diameter...it had really had outgrown it's pot.
We finally got a bird bath for the island, and planted around it with little odds and ends of hostas from the back yard.
Most of them were not happy where they were, and had been declining the last few years. Hopefully, they'll like the damper area around the bird bath better.
Here's a different angle. We have one very late azalea blooming, and you can see the impatiens beyond.
Autumn ferns and hostas, as you see, we need to mulch. This side of the island is in shade, and the other side is in sun from about noon on...hot and dry and a challenge to plant. It's a work in progress, and not worthy of even taking a photo at this point.
Hopefully, I'll be able to show you that later, once the daylilies we transplanted look a little better.
Other areas in the garden ~
An old urn holds another hosta near the driveway. Lots of wild stuff growing here.
Another urn near the walk way...
A dry shade area in the back yard. This is where the hosta were sulking. I don't blame them...plenty of shade, but D-R-Y!
This is in the "back forty", and it's really hard to drag a hose way out there...it could be I'm just lazy.
Well, time for a break and a BIG glass of iced tea. Come on by any time! We always have iced tea...and lots of weeding that needs to be done. :)
Happy Sunday, y'all.
