It was a weekend of gardening at the lake. The Husband and I worked right up until we came home last night. I found it to be so cute when he asked if he could plant a few pots. He is usually my "Master hole digger and weeder", but I obliged! I bought my plants and flowers here in Illinois. Although I pay more, the selection is greater. We went up Friday night so we were ready to work early Saturday morning.
You can see him through the palm trees, taking a break with a cigar! He did work so hard, cleaned up the beach so we are ready for a the load of new sand next weekend. Days were in the 70's but it got cold at night and we had the little chimnea cranked up!
I was hoping to have more blooms on the climbing rose, lots of buds though and our daisies are ready to become a mass of flowers any day now. Aren't they healthy? The husband sprinkles and waters epsom salts on everything, a tip he learned from our farm center. I really think it works.
I threw in some lavender as well and see the lambs ear in the back ground? It's popping up all over and I never planted it!
Remember this stake from last year? It still makes me giggle every time I look at it! That's my weird sense of humor!
In this tall cone shaped trellis, I am growing a hyacinth bean plant. Is anyone familiar with it? It is supposed to climb and get purple flowers on it. I'm excited to see what happens.
I was so excited to see some wrens building a nest in my little birdhouse! They are darling and so fun to watch!
The Husband got his palms repotted last weekend. This is his favorite place to sit when he is relaxing.
I pulled some decorative accessories out of my stash to dress everything up. The guest house (Summerhouse) is there in the background. I have yet to get in there and clean it out. And I still have the front yard and porch to work on. But I have to say, I got my exercise! Of course we relaxed, neighbors visited and we cooked out for the first time this summer. It really was a great weekend. I'm joining in with Tracie's Garden Party at Fishtail Cottage! See you soon! :)
