Somehow I missed making a post about my garden project! I was sure I had but it is no where to be found! My hubby and I celebrated our 7th anniversary today. Earlier this summer I was thinking about how in our 7 years in our house I had never planted anything in front of the house! It didn’t have flower beds and I always spent the summer attacking it with a weedwacker. So back in June I decided I would finally put in a flower bed. Here is what it looked like on June 3rd.
Well I went out and took a picture today and this is how it looks now.
The tall plants are sunflowers! I planted them so late but they are finally starting to form flower buds so it shouldn’t be long now. The Wisteria plant on the trellis is still surviving! It hasn’t gotten much taller but it has a ton of new growth. I lost one of my lavender plants! It just shriveled up and died. The other one looks great though. I planted two Rosemary plants. One looks fantastic and the other looks okay but the dogs have dug it up 6 times! If it survives I will be really surprised. In the second picture you can see some pots. In those I have some various herbs growing. I plan to add more lavender plants and some flowers next spring. Since I started it so late I was afraid to plant too much because we were getting into the really hot part of the year.
You may also have noticed the addition of my gnome Roy. My husband calles him “_______ Roy” The underlined part is him saying Dick under his breath. Richie wanted to call the gnome Dick and I wouldn’t let him so now he calls him “_____Roy” and gives me an evil grin every time we talk about him. Now you may be asking yourself why we talk about a gnome. I have no idea. We are strange! Our dogs do not like Roy and everytime I go outside he is laying down in the dirt! I am assuming it is the dogs but Roy may just be lazy. I haven’t decided yet!
