OT-new beds waiting for blooms

lisa_3(5)May 29, 2012

This project was done in three stages, one last spring, then one last fall, and finished this spring. Now I am waiting for the blooms to kick in, but I have realized that I overstuffed the beds and will need to eliminate some. I have a Louisiana iris burying out a couple mini daylilies. This was started to cover the stumps of a hedge row we took out.

You certainly were busy. That is a great project and look at all those daylilies ready to burst with blooms.

Great job!

You've been working hard and it really shows. Your beds look so nice and neat. It will be great when the daylilies start blooming.

You did a great job, now it will be the daylilies turn to do their job. It will look wonderful.

You did a really nice job on those new beds. The photo of the baby bird is my favorite.

Thanks everyone. Eventually we will remove more of the hedgerow around the back (some are dying and it looks bad) while others block the view while trying to get out of the drive. But I told hubby I wasn't doing any more beds, we can just look for smaller bushes. Too much to weed already. :)
