Some of my knockout Roses.. love those things.
A closer view with the Catnip in the pic.
The other side of the walk.. see the bunny peaking out? If you follow my blog you already know I love bunnies.. they are not just for Easter for me. This Iris is purple and yellow.. a beauty.
More roses and catnip.. I think they make a wonderful combination.
Clematis, catnip, iris and roses at hubby's shed.. he still doesn't understand "prettying up his shed".
I have to get in there and dig the iris up to move when the blooms die. Ouch!
The other side is full of light peach colored iris and a couple of the yellow. More to move.
some new blue.. hope they do well in NC..
My first pink hydrangea.. the other's are blue and have not bloomed yet.
This is a new area I planted recently. I can't wait to see all the flowers bloom. Yep, another bunny. I planted some catnip, a Carmelia and lavender in the far bed. I just planted the magnolia.. my third try. I am going to baby this thing sooo much. I really want one.. this one is suppose to get to 4x5 which is small. Smells heavenly out there. We just put down mulch but I am going to have to add more since the heavy storms.
Another bed.. I will show you later.. not happy with it now. Went today to get something to replace the pansies which, have not done well.. I will move them somewhere else. I have learned a lot of moving goes into a garden. These are the wave petunias which are suppose to spread and multiply well. Oops, glad I took this pic.. can't put it that close to the catnip.. yep I have a lot of catnip, it is such a pretty filler.
I forgot what this green one is called but it was only suppose to live for one season.. I moved it inside until the frost was over. Last year it had a long tall stem w/ a beautiful white flower on it. Hope it makes it.
Something sweet about new blooms, don't you think. I wish I could get a pic of the giant bee that buzzes around the gardens all day everyday. He is huge.
Hope you enjoyed my little garden.. I know it is not much but coming from doing nothing at all for years, I am pretty proud of it.Thanks for stopping by, please leave a message. I love to go back and see what you are up to in return.
Linking to these great blogs.. check them all out if you haven't. They are fantastic.
