Managed to get a little work done on the hexies but will finish this side I image sometime later today as rain will start late afternoon and the work in the garden will need to wait until later in the week again as it will be wet again unless most of the rain misses us. This part is stitched down already, I got almost to the half way point on it Friday evening. I will try to finish up this side today joining in the Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy and then get the next side glue basted in place on Monday. Also linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.
The dark blue hexie is the half way point and I am just about there.
The mints are all in pots – spearmint, peppermint and sweet mint – the pot on the end are some flowers, I don’t remember the name off hand.
The tulips are all looking great still with just a few that have fallen apart.
Extending this flower bed out a bit, some rocks added, some dirt added, still need to put in more dirt and then some flowers (annuals)– the lily bulbs need to be divided this fall and I will spread them out here.
The oregano is on the end closest – 2 plants they were green all winter and are ready to be used already – other herbs on the opposite end and fencing wire around some Romaine lettuce
Mike put some fencing up for me for the Green Peas to climb – on the opposite side of the bed are some purple coneflowers planted last year that came back I need to dig some up and plant elsewhere.
last fall when we were redoing the foot of the driveway, dismantling an old flower bed I got so tired of transplanting tiger lilies that I put them all here – I just dug trenches and put the bulbs in – not expecting all of them to grow – well you can see how thick they are LOL – well need to get some of them out of there in the fall.
Pretty lily of the valleys are coming up and look so pretty – I love the way they smell even though you have to get all the way down to smell them! The wild violets are all looking good and blooming too.
The big green guy here is my best friend almost all year round LOL – it sure does help me out to have this machine and the trailer behind him. I couldn’t get all the yard work done that I do with out it.
