The weather was so nice here on Saturday, I spent the whole day working out in the yard. We finished planting our garden, planted some flower pots, worked on a new perennial flower garden and edged the driveway. Now, there are more flowers blooming around our house, in the landscape and flower beds and I am anxious to share pictures of them with you all.
Firstly the flowers in our landscape.
Lilacs above and Weigela below. The Weigela are great for attracting hummingbirds.
I have planted a lot of Iris's, but here are some the previous owner planted.
And this is Phlox I planted in a new flower bed I am creating that is just for perennials.
And then for our garden, while it isn't blooming yet. It is all planted and some things are really starting to take off.
Tomatoes pictured above and eggplant below.
Above on the left is our kale and arugula and on the right is kohl rabi. Below you can see our Green Beans are just popping up through the soil.
And lastly, our Burr Oak is growing. If you'll recall Ott, E transplanted this little seedling 2 years ago and refers to it as our marriage tree. Because Oaks are sturdy just like our marriage. (Awww....isn't he just the sweetest.)
