Saturday I got a very pleasant surprise to find one of the irises open. As of today, it's the only one, but there are a few more out there getting ready to pop. This is from today:
The open iris is on the right-hand side. Looking back, those flowers have really come a long way since March. I hope the pictures will do the garden justice when all of them are open. It's just beautiful.
The main garden continues to grow. I'm trying to get out there every few days to pull weeds. So many weeds. There are black-eyed susans growing between the cracks in the stones in the patio. They are a bugger to pull as the stones are only 1/4" apart. Any suggestions on what to use to kill them? They can't grow or you won't be able to use the patio. I've used vinegar and boiling water in the past. Both work well. I hate to use anything chemical for fear it would harm what I don't want to kill. Here's the latest picture from Saturday:
Here's a recent photo of the peonies. Nothing popping there yet:
We were forecasted to get a frost last night. Thankfully we didn't. Of course as DH pointed out, the weathermen put every county in our half of the state on frost watch so they'd look like heroes when only 2 square miles on the top of a hill got frosted. Lol.
I'm going to start my second blog. We got a little surprise over the weekend.
