Yesterday was a beautiful day, and I was off, so I got busy digging at about 8:30 in the morning, and proceeded to do so most of the day. I made a new bed in the garden. Here are some before and afters. Not sure what this will be next year, flowers or veggies. FYI, everything in my garden has a limited life span as it sits. In about 3 or 4 years, we are going to undergo a remodle project here, and the garage is moving to where my garden is. I will salvage everything I can, and begin re-designing the garden in the space between the house and the garage. It will keep me busy.
Here is a before:
And a few afters:
And here is a close up of one of my Asters with some Hibiscus flowers thrown in:
Ok, this is pretty silly of me, but I clipped this off something in the yard last fall, and I cant figure out what it is. I know that when I did it, I figured it was a seed pod, and my intention was to dry it out, and see if there were indeed seeds inside, and plant them. Well, I came upon it in the garage, and broke it open, and there are indeed seeds inside, and now I CANT REMEMBER FOR THE LIFE OF ME WHAT IT IS. Check out these two photos and tell me if you know. The seeds are about half the size of a pea, and really wrinkled, like a raisin. What every it is, I am assuming I will know again this fall, as I still have all the same plants. Acutally, I had sooooo few last year, you would think I could narrow it down. Im thinking possibly Crepe Myrtle, or Canna's ( although I know Canna's come from tubers or rhizomes ) Help me out here.
And for something a little prettier.....another Kentucky moonshine inspired hybrid of mine......a double morning glory:
