So it isn’t really the first weekend for everyone, but for us it is! I also realize this isn’t an update as pictures of our garden have yet to get out there on the blog.
The one in the front yard of the rental is about 25 feet long and two feet wide. It houses a large lily bed along with several different perennials and a few annuals we’ve put in for splashes of color. It curves around the front steps and includes more annuals on one side and miniature roses on the other. In a little 1’x1.5’ area next to the garage we ripped out a huge monster of a weed last year and planted some tiger lilies (which much to our surprise doubled and need more space desperately).
In the back yard we added a 6’X3’ raised bed. Half of it houses ornamental flowers, the other half a mass of tomato and pepper plants (we may have slightly over bought on the first category).
As for the new bloomers…
In the front yard…
The orange tigers:
For the small space we were quite shocked at how well they grew up.
Tomato Soup Coneflower:
I love the red color. Situated between hibiscus and sedum plants it’s sure to be quite an eye catcher later on.
Random Oriental Lily:
She is gorgeous, and smells divine but her name is unknown to me.
In the back yard…
Fragrant Return Daylily:
A wonderfully buttery yellow was a nice surprise to us one morning last week.
Yes those huge creatures in front of us are tomato plants; and look at those jalapenos go!
