One of my favorite things to post about is my garden… Spring was especially difficult for me. Now that we’re homeowners again, I no longer need to wistfully dream of gardening. This summer, we’ll be updating and putting more energy into the house than the outdoors. Even though a few junk plants need to be ripped out, there are difficult to landscape areas and several overgrown features, I did hunt for the few hidden gems that the previous owners left.
A small maple stands guard at the top of the hill in the front of the house.
A few mountain rocks add framework behind faded irises.
One young oak dances at the top of the back hill, taunting us with his cool relief.
In the far back corner, native day lilies hide with chagrin in the shade. Don’t worry, I’ll soon replant you where you can flourish.
There are a few flowering shrubs and a lot of work needs to be done!
A lilac bush stands alone along the road, the hostas are chewed and lonely, an azalea is hiding beneath a vine, and a fire pit needs some love. I also remember in the spring, seeing a few daffodils in the front and a few grape hyacinths in the back. I can’t wait to see what else awaits us…
Which is your favorite?
PS… This is my 400th post!
