I got my baking all done today and Norman worked on the computer all evening but finally found out how to put the pictures onto the computer without having to take them to Walmarts to put on a CD. I wanted to show you
my garden. This is the hellabor that was in bloom when we got home the end of Feb. It is still blooming now but all the flowers are now white or a sort of greenish white and none are pink. The tall ones behind and to the left are the fox gloves just starting to open. This garden get almost no sun. It is on the north side of the house and right up next to the house. These plants seem to like the shade. There are two big hostas just to the right of this picture, several coral bells, lilie of the valley and several Chinese Lanterns. Remember I told you everything grows well here but the plants know where they want to grown and just refuse if they are not in the right place. Four years ago I thought I wanted a rose garden so just up from the grape arbor I put in 6 Mr Lincoln roses. I ordered them and because they were late in shipping them they sent me a bonus rose called the Love Struck. Well we prepared the soil just right and planted the Mr Lincolns in the prepared bed. There was not room for the Love Struck so I put that in the hosta bed next to the lilac. All six Mr Lincolns were dead in two years. This is the Love Struck rose, it seems to love the spot where it was put so I haven’t tried to move it. There are some of the iris I could not find room for when I moved them from the south side under the trees. There are also lilies just in front of the rose, they will be blooming later. So there is something blooming in this garden most of the time. When we got home in Feb the spring bulbs were all in bloom but of course they have long since gone and just the green leaves are left and just blend in with the iris and hosta which are just on this side of the garden. All of these iris came from Blairsville five years ago and have just spread, spread. I need to move more from the front as they are being take over by the forsythia.
These are the hostas that are on the other side of the above bed. This garden is just in front of the downstairs deck. I love to sit in the swing on the porch and watch the flowers grown. there is always something blooming here also. Tomorrow I will show you the picture of the vegetable we took and later where the blueberries are blue I will take some pictures of those also, they are just so loaded. Also the raspberries are all budded but it does no good to take pictures of those until they turn red, you can see the buds. Have a good night.
