One big project I tackled today - the weeds and mint that have taken over the azalea bed on the East side of the house.
After - there is canna planted in there, and the delphiniums our godson brought us on Saturday:
(The transplanted volunteer sunflowers don't look so good now, but they'll bounce back.)
This coral bell planted itself in a crack of our sidewalk last year, earlier this spring I moved it back into one of our beds, and it is doing great! (Sweet William and Geum in the background)
I put some annuals in pots for out front:
We bought these at a new-to-us garden center, Sabellico, yesterday. That place is *huge!* We will need to go back, they had so many irises! Here is the millet and Toothache Plant:
and the Toothache Plant up close (the tag says you can chew the leaves to numb your gums, yikes.):
Dirty feet are a good sign of a long, exhausting and fulfilling day of gardening. :-)
