Happy Wednesday Everyone!
I hope everyone is having a really good day! We are finally getting some very much needed rain here in SC. It is a nice steady rain, so it should soak into the ground and help my new plants grow. Talking about new plants, yesterday I received my Gilbert H. Wild & Sons plant order. I planted what I could without having to dig anymore in the garden I started. The lawnman is coming to rototill a garden area for me. I started it a few weeks ago but it will go much faster with his rototiller. I ended up having to take up some more sod due to the fact that I went crazy with ordering plants and this is only the first of 3 orders coming!
I planted the following:
Bridgeton Celebrity Daylily
Mardi Gras Parade Daylily
Siloam Ury Winniford Daylily
Big Daddy Hosta
Berry Taff Bee Balm
Country and Western Astilbe
Plum Pudding Coral Bells
Sugar Plum Foxglove
Uptown Girl Tall Garden Phlox
Here are some photos of the extended garden and the hosta/astilbe area:
When I was outside grilling my chicken for dinner, a female cardinal came to the feeder. Usually they are so cautious but this one seemed very calm. She did look around alot but I was able to lift my phone up and snap a photo before she flew away.
Before Jenny, Kevin and the boys arrived to pick up Ringo, their dog, Emma just chilled out by me out on the screened in porch. She is never very far from my side, especially since we moved.
When I was watering my blue hydrangea, I just really liked the way the water droplets sat on the big leaves. I decided to share it with you.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day! I am going antiquing with Jenny this morning and probably we'll have lunch. Then this afternoon both dogs need 1 shot, so off to Florence to the vet we go!
Have a good one!
