Windy here today...and we all know how I feel about windy conditions. Waah!
Been in a funk and know why...it will pass. Hope everyone had a nice Mothers' Day of those who celebrate it.
The hot pink azalea was stunning this year! The cooler temps were a big hit with the spring flowers! We're supposed to hit 90* mid week here. Ugh. Too soon!
Next up will be the peonies. They are loaded with buds this year. I'm excited!
The Korean lilac is finally blooming. Sadly, half of the trumpet vine pulled off the house and nearly crushed the lilac! The hummingbird will be disappointed as there will be fewer trumpets this year but at least it blooms on new growth so all is not lost.
So far, the drainage fix in the dog yard is working. No 'lake'. Not sure if I mentioned this already but, I bought a 'astro turf' area rug and put the Adirondak chairs on it, just to have a bit of green back there. The dogs love it! Nice little spot to lie down that is not dirt and rocks!
Cucumbers are hanging in there, lettuce is growing nicely, strawberry plants are doing well. No sign of germination from the sugar snap peas...yet. I still have to get the 'cherry' tomatoes and the one other type of tomato that seems to do well here.
Two of the clematis have exploded with blooms! The other two are taking their time, which is fine with me. One is energetically climbing the new trellis while the other seems to have taken a liking to the fence. I found 'Foxtail Lily' rootings at the garden center and am trying them in pots this year. At maturity, they can reach up to 7ft tall! The pots themselves are nearly 3 ft, so if they come up it should be magnificent! How I'll protect them from wind is beyond me at this point! ha ha
