Around the Garden

I know it's a bit late in the game, but I've only now gotten around to re-vamping my garden. It's been weeks since we've had rain here and as silly as it may be, I've been afraid to get my garden hose out of the garage due to my fear that I will most certainly be attacked by monstrously large spiders, so needless to say, my garden hasn't faired well in recent weeks.

But, I think I made up for lost time last week. I just about gutted it. I put in 2 new hydrangea bushes, a bunch more vinca and moved around a few of my day lillies (which were my mystery plant) to give it a more "naturally planned" feel. I re-soiled my tomatoes (which are looking pretty sad, sorry Kim) and talked sweetly to my morning glories (which STILL haven't bloomed). And of course, I convinced my hubby to brave the spiders in the garage to get the garden hose, so it is all well watered!

Next year will go better I think. My hydrangeas should come back, as will my day lillies and whatever that sweet purple flower is that Kim gave me. So I should really only have to re-plant the vinca and anything else I want to try.

Practice makes perfect, right?
