New Flower Bed, Yeah!!!!!

Category: Flowers and Vegetables | Posted: Wed Mar 28, 2007 5:06 pm

Do y'all remember last year when we dug all of the daylilies and irises out of a bed in front? Well, it is a bed again. Richard tilled it yesterday, we raked it and got the grass out today. I hauled 5 wheelbarrows of good dirt from our brush pile in the back, not the easiest of hauls. I broke the wheelbarrow when I hit a log covered by leaves. Richard fixed it, the axle had just slipped out of the little metal holder. I dug the log out, and it now sits in front of the new bed. It is really curvy and bumpy and adds interest. One the high end I will plant some type of trailing plant to spill over it. It broke in two, but I got it to sit back like it was in the ground. And I need to find another piece about 4 ft. long to finish off the front of the bed. When our land was cleared the idiots who did it pushed all of the brush and trash trees in a corner with oak trees, so we can't burn it without hurting the trees. A lot of our topsoil was pushed back there too. That is where I got the dirt. Anyway, I will start planting the bed this afternoon, I want all purple and gold/yellow plants in it. Go LSU!!!!!
I have a butterfly plant, a candelabra tree, a purple angels trumpet, and some purple perennial verbena so far. I will probably put some yellow daylilies in there too. What's a flower bed without daylilies. I want some glads and some low growing gold coreopsis but my flower allowance is used up for now. Oh well, we'll see what else can be found to put in it. I will update everyone on the progress in a couple of days.

They don't call you the Daylily Diva for nothing Sharon. Looking forward to the updates!

Oooh, a fresh new flower bed.
Almost nothing better...'cept maybe chocolate in unlimited quantities that you know will not add pounds to your sittin' down part.

I will go the a couple of nurseries this weekend and buy plants, I will, I will. No more of this holding back for me.

Sounds really exciting to me.I wish you could post some pictures for us.

I still have some yellow coreopsis seed. It's tall though, about 2 or 2 1/2 ft. Let me know if you want some. Dooley

Hey Sharon it's not fair!!! You're going to plant up your new bed now and I have to wait until I get back from Holland to do mine. SIGH. Yours sounds as though it's going to be lovely blues/purples and yellow go sooo well together.

Thanks Dooley, but you sent me some. I am looking for a shorter one. I think I will get Coreopsis "Nana", it sounds like the color and height I am looking for. Might have to wait until next year though.
Hopefully DD will get off her rear and find me another photo site so I can post pics again

A new bed - sounds wonderful. My planned new garden area is still too wet to do much but am happy to here yours is progressing.
