garden pictures

Here is the garden last week. It had just rained. There are a few irises out.

And here's the garden yesterday. I finally got the patch in the foreground stripped of grass. The plan is to dig up more grass and put in a path beside where it is tilled. No time line for that, as we can't decide what to use for the path: flagstone, bricks, cement squares.

There are quite a few more irises that have bloomed. I've got dark purple, medium purple, white, purple/gold, and one peach. I think there's blue ones yet to bloom. The lilacs on the left-hand side are Miss Kim Miniature Lilacs. There are four bushes there that we planted in 2003. They are just starting to come out and they smell wonderful. The rocks to the left of the patio opening are just there temporarily until I find a new place for them. Of course, in my life, temporary means they'll probably be there in September. LOL.

Here's a close up of an iris after the rain.

Here's the area that I stripped the grass from. To the right are miniature lilacs we got from friends. They were planted last fall and are doing fabulous.

For the peony fans, there are a few that look like they will be blooming soon.

Here's the iris bed last week. Not too many bloomers.

And yesterday. I don't remember there being so many of the purple/gold ones. It seemed last year that it was all purple, but perhaps they just took a little longer to flower. You can't see it, but there is also a light purple one that's low to the ground.

I've started a few zuke seed inside and they are starting to sprout. I'm also trying to start watermelons inside. Nothing on those seeds yet. And I'm also starting basil inside. I just love fresh basil. Yum. As for vegetables, I want to put in a little lettuce, a few tomato plants, and the zukes and watermelons. I'm not expecting much from the watermelons, but it will be fun to see what happens.

You've done a good job of clearing out the grass Amy - well done.

Your iris are beautiful and it certainly looks as though your peony is going to have lots of flowers on it.

I have one of the dwarf lilacs too and it's in full bloom at the moment and wafting its scent arund the garden.
