It is a rain day .. so another rest day which is great for my aching shoulder ... phew !
So ? ... just a few shots and a few comments on some pictures of progress under way.
No ... the landscaping is still in the line up and every rain day pushes it further back .. BUT? .. rain is so good for the garden I am not going to complain .. no complaining is a miracle for me so another positive point for the 13th drama ?? wink wink
First the front garden is still being tweaked ... no ... not tweeted ... tweaked ... look it up if you are not old enough to know what that means ok ? .. giggle snort
The hits of blue and soft yellow are nice .. I have been pinching back the sedum so they look sad at the moment (ignore them ok ?)
That is Munchkin oak leaf hydrangea under the obelisk and beside him is Kinshi with the second bud that bloomed ... I was sorry not to get a good picture of the second flower but still in awe that it bloomed it's first year !! Well done and thanks to Hortico the company I got it from.
Another thing to ignore are the two bags of peastone gravel .. cover your eyes !
I have some nice Autumn grasses that will look really pretty to go along with a variety of cone flowers.
I try to have plants for every stage of the gardening season .. but they always manage to have a mind of their own on whether they will smile or not .. go figure, all of them should be female ? haha
I do love the insides though ... such a contrast to the screaming red.
"Twinkle" clematis capture me a couple of years ago and now she is beginning to form her flowers .. at any stage she looks so elegant to me .. like a beautiful bird with that shape right now.
I can't wait for this child to grow taller and really have that wow factor ... she is a beauty to me even now as a toddler!
The Goldfinches always entertain us with their quibbles at the feeders.
The rabbit came to visit last night but if you had seen the chipmunk jump on the rabbit to make him run away ... well you know .. you never have a camera when the funniest things happen .. hubby and I will laugh at that one for a long time .. who knew a chipmunk could intimidate a rabbit ??
