FINALLY, They're Planted!!
It has taken literally weeks, but when it's the peak of real estate season AND it seems to rain every day, getting gardening time in can be challenging!
But couple an extra day off from engineering with a relatively light real estate schedule (showings with three different buyers, a contract negotiated, accepted and voided), and it was finally time to get the shovel and the wheelbarrow and get to work! So Friday afternoon/evening and yesterday were no picnic, but 40+ flowers and shrubs now have their new homes!
Over the last few years we've planted hundreds of flowers and thousands of bulbs (no exaggeration!). Jack Frost has taken its toll on some of our plants, so we've adjusted and are being more conservative on the hardiness rating of our new flowers. We're SUPPOSED to be Hardiness Zone 5 here, but the last two winters have been unusually cold, dipping to the negative mid teens for a few days, and that's led to some of our perennials becoming annuals!
A lot of the work is for a longer term payoff (all those small azaleas will some day be large and adding whites, pinks, reds, yellows and oranges to our woodline).
Our flowers give us the full rainbow of selection, and from the early crocus and daffodil blooms until winter takes the last blooms away, we have flowers giving us bright colors. And the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds get to enjoy them too!
But for the next few hours I'm on gardening sabbatical, watching and jeering for our team! GO USA WOMEN!!!! BRING HOME THE WORLD CUP!!!
