|Just a sec . . .|
Worked my butt off in the garden yesterday because it was supposed to rain today. I weeded the bed that wraps around the house and topdressed it with compost. I moved the acanthus that was going to be in the way of the new front porch stairs and started relocating the driveway strip plants (just one spiraea so far). I also planted some hyacinth beans to run up the newly vacated trellis on the sunny side.
Top: One of my favorite color spots. L to R: Sedum ‘Sunset Cloud’, volunteer columbine, Primula ‘Nectarine’, Heuchera ‘Peach Melba’. (Please ignore the extension cord.)
Second row: The replanted herb bed. Lots of perennials (and, naturally, the annuals) didn’t make it through the winter. Left picture L to R: Winter thyme, ‘Sweet Italian’ basil, French tarragon, oregano. (Parsley above oregano). Right picture top to bottom: Marjoram, fernleaf dill, rosemary ‘Arp’, Italian flatleaf parsley. (I also have some lavender, spearmint, and lemon balm on the other side of the patio.)
Bottom row left: Viola ‘Black Duet’ and sweet woodruff at the feet of my St. Francis statue. Right: I added a little path to the kitty house so that the Boll Weevil can get in and out even when the beds start to get overgrown.
