We had a big rain storm come through yesterday. We all took our turns taking the puppy out (who still isn't housebroken; how long does that take?).
Our new addition, "Blackie", is an ornery little thing. She goes through these spurts of energy and then sleeps for two or three hours. She digs in the mud (and the little bit of landscaping that I have) not feeling one bit of guilt or remorse.

Below are my hydrangeas, which are very slow growing. I did put some Miracle Grow on them last week hoping to give them a "boost". I'll give them some more this week. There were three, but only two greened up. I replaced the dead one with a rose bush.
Does anyone have any advice for my Knockout Rose bushes? They have some sort of pest. I've cut them way back and sprayed some diluted Dawn detergent on them. They look a little better, but I'd like to get them nice and full and healthy.
Hubby and I have spent some backbreaking hours clearing out the old hedgerow. We still have one little section to do and take down that big dead tree. My husband wants to buy a chainsaw and do it himself. I keep envisioning a trip to the ER and would rather hire someone to do it.

Anyone in the market for a house, horse stable and 6 acres?
Our neighbor across the street has his property on the market. I think the stable is so pretty and I really enjoy seeing the horses. For the most part though, he keeps them in the area on the back of the stable.

The forecast looks sunny for the next few days, so things should dry up fairly quickly and hopefully the hay/seed contractor can finish up the grading and spread the hay and seed.
How long do you think it takes grass to grow?
Have a blessed day!
