  • Garden Is Finally Growing

    Growing season is approx a month behind schedule here this year and my Japanese Iris are FINALLY blooming. Here are a few more pix:

    Oooh, love looking at your pictures. One question. How did you prepare this garden area? How do you keep the weeds out? I notice you have landscaping mulch around....weeds and grass always poke up through mine. Do you have to weed?

      Fatkat I must say you have a wonderful greenthumb. Looks like you have a beautiful yard. I'll bet you've got the kind that I like to look at.

        Are those the lupines?

        Those ones sticking up straight in the middle of the last pick... the purple and pink I think.... are those the lupines or are they something else? I know you posted a pic of some a few days ago, but can't remember.

        You have a really nice garden! My peonies are almost over now, and my lilies are real short, but they have begun budding, aside from some glads and the lilies, my color in my yard is almost over this year.

            Thanks fatkat, I've been seeing some maroon colored ones lately and I wasn't quite sure if they were the same plant as yours or not, so this picture today helped.

                Just took a long break from the grind of copy and paste (LOLOL) and weeded and hung bird houses and bird feeders. I hope I get some takers in the new houses
