Come here often?
I never thought I'd run out of impatiens. I think they were multiplying when I wasn't looking.
Finally finished planting and mulching. Time for a drink.
Now for a few close-ups:
White azalea in the backyard. This is a remnant of a past homeowner. The bush was being strangled by ivy when we moved in last year. I thought it was dead until it started blooming this week. It's still a very spindly, sickly looking bush, but it's trying and I've resolved to do some research to see if I can nurse it back to health.
I think this is a butterfly bush. Regardless, it's gorgeous in bloom.
Red azalea. There are four bushes dotting the foundation garden in front of the house. They don't look very healthy, so Chris and I have some work to do.
Chris wanted an urn for the front garden so we popped in to our favorite import store and hit the jackpot. The ice princess was a spur of the moment purchase while we were picking up some extra supplies at the home improvement store.
Baby hosta putting up new growth. I have a small hosta obsession. It's the only plant that I have any luck with.
One of the many coleus plants Chris put in.
The impatiens are thriving. I can't wait for them to start spreading out.
