and on the other side are more!
A few years ago I picked up a bunch of those 10 cent seed packages at the Dollar Store and look what happened! I love cutting bouquets of them! After they have all bloomed, I cut them back. I have catmint, black-eyed Susans, coneflowers and dianthus perennials planted in between and then I add annuals. This year I'm planting snapdragons and pink geraniums.
I have several birdbaths in my garden but this is my favorite.
One reason of course is because of the color but the main reason is how the glaze on the bowl formed a crescent moon shape on the bottom!
Here is the edge of my property along the driveway. I made flowerbeds to frame in the driveway. I have perennials and then planted annuals among them. I transplanted my little peach tree out here where it's sunny...hopefully I didn't kill it by moving it. I've been watering it heavily. I worked the soil along the property line and filled in a bit of the ruts.
Everything to the right of the photo is the neighbors yard and that's his @#!#-ing truck. He told me today that all my flowers and hard work are looking nice. He said that when he works that hard, he is just wiped out for days...(He's four years younger than me.) He said that his daughter had talked about growing a garden out there. I said that would be nice! But I know that if it happens, it will become overgrown and nasty, oh well.............
