Join me as I renovate my 1881 farmhouse with much creativity and very little budget. (Often with humorous results). Oh and there may be random ramblings posted from time to time. It helps quiet the voices in my head. Well, that and the prescription the Dr. gave me...
Welcome to my Sunday post dedicated to all things garden, landscape, and plant related.
Whose been busy? This girl that's who!
I removed all the straw from the bed. I actually had to pull weeds! gggrrr. I trimmed my Butterfly bush, the sedum, the variegated fountain grass and pulled down all the dead cardinal climber vine.
Finger's crossed my clematis survives. I think I have picked the optimum spot. This bed gets sun all day!. The clematis will be slightly shaded as the variegated fountain grass fills in.
I planted the Siberian Irises which are near a clump of orange lilies.
In front of this I planted a swathe of African Corn Lilies (Ixia mix). The nice thing is they are good cut flowers. What's the point of having all these flowers if I can't enjoy them in my house?
Anybody want some sedum? I one huge clump that will be dived into 3 or 4 clumps. Then there are 2 smaller clumps that will be divided in half and there is 1 teeny baby plant. So 9 clumps of Autum Joy sedum sure will go a long way!
I worked on my flower boxes for my kitchen and living room windows. I have pansies, violas, tulips, daffodils and hyacinths coming in.
The urns by my porch steps look cheerful!
And just so you don't think it is all about the flowers, I put together a raised bed system to see if I like this configuration. This has lettuce, spinach, radishes, carrots and chives (green onions)
Well that is all I can share with y'all for today.
