Flower bed that is.
Yesterday and today, we worked on putting together a small flower bed by the mail box.
We worked the soil, loosening up the hard clay dirt and built this small "retaining" wall out of rock from our yard.
And yes, there is more rock where that came from!
Then we put down top soil, planted the plants and put down fresh mulch.
I picked out full sun perennials for the little bed...
I selected an evergreen holly (in the back), a yellow mum (for late summer and fall color), a knock-out rose (that is looking a little wilted in the heat right now, but will perk up with time)...
purple asters, perky Shasta daisies, and a bayberry shrub (which is also evergreen).
I just purchased small plants, it is less expensive that way, and they will grow, in time, to a nice size.
Last but not least, ole Peter Rabbit has come out into the light of day after more than a year of storage.
Welcome to your new home Peter.
I'm off for a bike ride with my husband and son. Dirt, mulch covered and all.
P.S. I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for some crochet talk as I was asked to participate in a fun blog hop.
Toodles for now.
