Saturday we spent the majority of the day working in the yard. Dean was making some adjustments to some drainage & putting the rest of the mulch down. We still have to buy more. I planted flowers & Dean also moved a couple of plants around.
This is 21st century phlox. I got it off the clearance rack at Lowe's for $3.00.
Dasante Blue Delphinium
This is my favorite! Pink Hydrangeas
Aren't they gorgeous? I hope I can keep it alive.
The Dianthus were on clearance for $1.00. The plants looked healthy for the most part. I figured for $1.00 I might as well see how they do.
I wanted something to put in pots on my patio so I got Impatiens
I got 2 different colors. It's hard to tell in the pictures but some are a bright pink & some are more of a purple. I also got some mini snapdragons that were clearance for .50 each. I got a few of those & planted around my mailbox. I forgot to take a picture though. We also planted a Knock Out Rose in a spot to replace a Gardenia that never did well & eventually bit the dust this year.
I don't know about y'all but our weather has been crazy nuts. I have plants that never went dormant & stuff growing that doesn't normally grow at this time. My begonia's & geraniums have been blooming for weeks. We're supposed to get a lot of rain the next few days. I'm glad because the rain water makes such a difference & with all the new stuff we moved & planted it needs some good rain water but I'm not happy about it because it will probably interfere with my run schedule. I ran this morning & my plan is to go again Friday morning. It's tough getting out of bed at 4:45 but it's great to have it done.
