I have been busy here in my GEORGIA GARDENS since I backed away from the computer a bit. We are receiving rain almost daily so I am not dragging around the water hose. That is a good thing and my time has been spent on other things. I made a change in this area as something had to give.
I love Trumpet Vine but it has started to become a bit pushy in my Semi-Formal Garden. Here you see it has started to take over a Nandina the Saint and I recently moved from another spot to its new and final home.
After a missing vine, I can see the star and some old garden tools hanging on the fence that I had forgotten were there! Yes, the Trumpet Vine was taking over and had to go. I will be pulling this vine for a long time to come as it has spread all over the area with its long running shoots of roots!
I created another little spot of whimsy. Golf being the theme.
Tina, do you recall this Carolina Pottery bargain find while with me in Columbia South Carolina? I shall add more to this as I spot things on bargain shelves in the future. Oh, and now we have a Carolina Pottery here in our town!
We installed a new larger pool recently. Just in time for a week long visit with family. It is so much fun having kids in the house!
Worked on a craft of making plant markers. This was from Tina's tutorial on this blog a while back. Click Here to see the Posting. My darker colored clay markers do not look as nice as Tina's but I am working on it. Tina, are they supposed to be flexible after baking? My markers look and feel more like leather then clay...
Now I shall share some blooms of the past month in my gardens.
|Wild Thing Sage|
|Red Riding Hood Beard Tongue (Penstemon)|
Lilies have been and continue to give a wonderful show!
I enjoy the many colors of lily throughout my gardens.
I have dug up and divided many and am well on my way to having Lilies in almost every garden I have created.
I only wish they would bloom from spring to fall but no such luck.
The blooms on my lily all seem to get larger this year.
Not sure if that is due to all the wonderful rain fall we have been receiving this year or not.
But I sure am enjoying the bright colors.
I have more to divide in time such as this beauty.
"Easter" Lily really showed off its bright white.
The bees are enjoying Allium. I planted 100 bulbs throughout the gardens last fall.
|Red Hot Poker|
Red Hot Poker was added to my gardens last year and it seems happy.
This Red Hot Poker was picked up from the bargain bin last fall. Little did I know it would be creamy yellow/white!
