Today has ended up being sunnier than I expected. The weather people can't seem to get our forecasts right much anymore. Anywho, I got the yard cut yesterday and all the edging done. Today it I have some more yard work to do and it is HOT. I think I will wait till the sun moves around to the back of the house. Our front yard is terribly hot till about two o'clock in the summer.
You can see how the weight of the flowers are pulling part of the bush over.
I wish the lavender colored one would stay that way, but I'm sure it will get bluer.
I'm not even positive, but I think this is a Nikko Blue. My sister in law gave me a cutting 17 years ago and it was planted in the back yard when we were building the house and then some changes were made out back and the bush got dug up and tossed aside and landed at the corner of the house somehow and came back. Last year was the first year that it did real well.
I bought this little baby hydrangea last year and need to dig it up and move it over since the big bush is taken over on top of it.
Our garden is MUCH smaller this year. We only have tomatoes, strawberries and cucumbers. The cucumbers were just recently planted so it will be late before we get those.
The tomatoes are coming in.
Did you see my new truck on facebook last week? Isn't she a beauty? haha. Mr. Savvy will have it looking much better soon. He did get it running and said it purrrrrrrs. We have been needing a truck for this and that and now I will be able to buy furniture to paint and get me a booth to sell. Can't wait to clean out my hoarding room. Bad thing is it doesn't have air. I guess I will sweat in the summer and maybe lose some weight.
The verbena that used to be gorgeous had gotten very leggy and was not doing well so I pulled it all up yesterday. I should have gotten a shot of what it looked like. A far cry from this.
We went to the nursery and bought some knockout rose bushes to plant here instead.
And we bought three more hydrangeas to put at the end of the bed in front of the house.
They are small now, but give them a year or two and hopefully they will be gorgeous.
Well, that is enough rambling. Time to go plant those bushes before the afternoon rain comes.
Come back tomorrow for a project I did last week and there is a sneak peek on my facebook page at a project I did yesterday.
Hope you have a super week!
