Deep Blue

Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Sat Jun 27, 2009 10:52 pm

These blue tinged Delphiniums are my favorite. I don't recall the variety, but they are definitely the deepest blue flower I have in my gardens. From a distance they actually look blue, you don't see the purple until you get up close.

Cherries, and more cherries, and more cherries.....

Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Sat Jun 20, 2009 5:29 pm

So where did I disappear off to now? Picking cherries. This is the week we do nothing but pick cherries. We have a beautiful crop this year due to no late frost and consistent rain.



Then we pit cherries. As labor intensive the whole process is, it is still worth it. The Norpro Deluxe Cherry Stoner does a pretty good job, it can be found on places like Amazon or eBay. So far, I have 16 pounds of pitted cherries, with a long way to go...

The Big Picture 2009 - Part 1

Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Thu Jun 11, 2009 2:51 am

It's always a lot of fun to take close-up and macro shots, but sometimes I like to see the "big picture" of how a garden grows. Here's Part I of the big picture of my gardens. These are the shadiest areas, much gets no more than dappled sun throughout the day. I've managed to get peonies to bloom at the outer edges of the garden, where there is enough sun. Other plants that are successful are hostas, shasta daisies, roses at the sunnier edges, penstemon, grasses, iris, daylilies, clematis, trillium, mock orange, ferns, astilbe, bellflower, ajuga, and my favorite groundcover--sweet woodruff.

The Making of a YouTube Video

Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Fri Jun 05, 2009 5:43 pm

Since I watch so many videos of others' gardens, I just had to give it a try myself. Windows Movie Maker makes it easy, just make sure to save it to your computer when you are done so it's a .wmv file compatible with YouTube. The music is part of a Haydn sonata, played by me of course! Adding mp3 audio is easy to do, just make sure you have copyright or permission to use the music.

Be sure to click on HQ after pressing play to view in high quality.

Weigela in Bloom

Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Wed Jun 03, 2009 3:40 am



This weigela came with the house in 1972. It has gone through it's rough years where it looked half dead, but with some yearly early spring pruning, it bounced right back, looking better each year.
