Finishing up the edging

Lots of activities happening today. We focused on the front garden, finishing the edging and clean-up now that May is here. The rain stopped this morning so we were able to make some headway. Poor David wanted to finish the edging and I had just fed the front garden with Mills Magic Mix. If anyone uses it, you know the terrible smell. But the roses love it!

David putting the edging in....

Lots more to do. But those things go in so easily it only took about 10 minutes to finish.

At the end, we have a ton of bricks for the future front path. Now...just where to store them.

This is how the front garden looks now with the new edging. You can see it a little bit on the ends but hoping that will sink down. Also, on the right hand side of the garden, those are all baby plants so they will hopefully fill in and lop over the side.

A few other exciting things happening in the garden...I don't know if I've ever shared our climbing hydrangea on the side of the house. It's a beast. It hasn't bloomed quite yet, but just about. This was here when we moved in, I'm not sure how many years ago it was planted. We have to cut it back or it tries to get in the house.

Still waiting patiently for Spring roses to bloom, but I'm very excited to see my first Mr. Lincoln bud. I planted him last year with no activity to speak of. This year looks to be a good one for him. This bud is huge and stately, just as everyone says.

First tall bearded iris, Immortality is in bloom.

What a Peach looking peachy.
