I hope you're having a good weekend.
Hubby and I decided we'd go out early this morning to work in the yard...before it got hot.
While he was getting out the shovel and wheel barrow, I wandered around the pine island, trying to decide where I wanted to move things.
It's sort of like decorating the house. When you move one thing, it starts a chain reaction. Then, you have to find something to fill in the empty spot.
The Sedum Matrona, behind the day lilies, was getting really bunched up, so I took some of it out...
...and planted two Lantanas behind what was left. I hope they'll fill in the bare spots.
After that, I checked around the yard to see if we needed to move anything else.
I stood under the Natchez Crepe Myrtle for a few minutes, trying to decide if the day lilies are in too much shade.
They seem to be blooming well, so I'll leave them there for the summer.
I'm surprised that the violas at the mail box are still doing well. I know they'll die back when it gets really hot, and then I'll have to replace them with some summer annuals.
After that, I took a quick walk around back to see what the new flower beds were doing.
This is one of the four beds we planted before Easter.
The Dianthus (pinks) seem to be doing well, and the volunteer tomato plant in the middle of them will stay.
It'll be fun to see what kind of tomatoes it'll have.
This is a somewhat shady bed with transplanted hostas, ferns and toad lily. As you can see, there's lots of weeding to be done.
That bowl of cereal I had for breakfast is long gone. I am sooo hungry.
Time for a shower, then I'm off to the barbecue place to pick up...
...two big pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw.
Hubby and I scarfed them down like we were starving.
They were sooo good!
So much for my exciting Saturday morning.
I think I need a nap after all that barbecue and yard work.
