Forecast for the next few days - Sunny and in the low to mid-70's - yeah, baby, yeah!
Things are finally starting to settle down at work. It's still busier than usual but I no longer feel like running away from this place, screaming.
And now I have a few minutes to fill you in on my latest gardening adventures.
Last week I got a few more plants. One thing I always make sure to plant are Petunias. I know - very common flowers - but I love them. This year I planted my standard magenta colored Petunias, but I also picked up some purple and whites called 'Rhythm and Blues.' Being a musical-type person (I have a music degree, anyway) I thought them appropriate.

I also picked up a Hydrangea. It was marked down due to a little frost damage, but it's recovered nicely and the blooms are already bigger than this picture.

Remember that corner bed I created a few weeks back - the one that sloped? Well, I realized that I didn't like that slope after all so I used some of my remaining liner and raised the bed.

|Clematis loves the ladies|
I planted the Clematis for my father-in-law. When we moved in he told me about the huge Clematis his father had planted in front of the house. He's mentioned that plant several times so I've gotten the impression that he remembers it very fondly. I only hope this one turns out as pretty as that one. (I've seen pictures and it was very nice.)
My last project last weekend was to line the front beds and finish mulching. I placed some potted plants in the bed to fill out the empty spots and add some height. I also planted more Marigolds and the Daylillies are filling in. It's still a little bare, but looks better with the mulch.
The Lilacs flowers are gone now but I enjoyed them while they lasted. So did our annual tenants.
