I have been busy in my garden every day. I have been edging all the beds, getting the weeds out and mulching the beds. We are having a new fence installed, so I had to remove about 50 pots of flowers. This took a lot of time and work. And they were supposed to put it in three weeks ago, so I have been impatiently waiting for this to be finished. When I had the large silver maple trimmed, and the other large maple removed, it changed the yard from shade to sun, so now I have lots of shade plants to squeeze in somewhere. I'm still trying to figure out just where that will be.
To me, that's a lot of the fun of gardening, the changes that constantly take place. I've found that a garden is never done, but constantly evolving. And that is a beautiful thing!
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL!!! I love peonies and hostas also. I have one peony bush in back and several hostas around this desert house, sugar! They seem to like the north side of the yard. But I just loved seeing them tonight on your blog!
