Beds in bloom !!!
Tuesday, June 15, 2010
Was putzing in the front flower bed over the weekend and thought I would share some pictures with you. My mom and I love working in the flower beds and this time of year is busy. We have finished cutting off the spent greens from the spring bloomers and now the early summer bloomers are starting to open. This is the bed that I put in in the front of our house. I love the water feature espeically. It is so nice when sitting on the porch to listen to and also to watch the birds bathing or drinking.
The red chair in the background reminds me of my dad. He passed away almost 9 years ago and he got this chair at auction before he died. He wanted to cut a hole in the seat for the flower pot and put it in the garden. I finally convinced mom of this and went ahead and did it. Figured the bright red would show up nicely, and it does. I think he would like it. My dad loved flowers, not weeding the beds, just looking at the flowers.
I am trying to keep a photo journal of my flower beds so I can see where I need to move things. Helps with all the different bloom times. I have some dividing I need to do but will wait till my brother moves into his new house. He will need some starters for his beds.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures and will post more when things bloom.
