Here in Georgia, there's always a small window of time for getting things planted, before it's hot as blazes.
It's been in the 80s for a couple of days, and the A/C has already kicked in a couple of times. I got sunburned yesterday...wasn't even thinking about sunscreen.
Here's what's been going on in the yard...
...Hostas are coming up.
Our dogwoods are almost in full bloom.
Ferns are emerging.
The early azaleas are blooming. Can you see the pollen on the leaves? The pollen count today was 2722...Yikes!
Yesterday, I planted four planters of mixed violas, bacopa, butter daisies and million bells. I stuffed the thrift store frog planter with a few left over violas.
In the garden, one of my favorites...an old crusty urn, holds a pot of speedwell.
Today, we planted a mixed sedum garden in the "Y" of the front walkway.
I'll try to get a good picture for you when everything fills in. Right now, it looks OK, but in the photos I took, it looks like a mess.
We also planted Stella D' Oro day lilies, to replace the verbena that I gave up on last year.
It was really nice this afternoon, so I moved the frog planter...
...to the deck coffee table.
As soon as the sun goes down a little more, I think I'll put my feet up and have a glass of something cool and refreshing. Come on over and join me...don't mind the dirt on my garden shoes. :)
Hope y'all have a great weekend.
