working in the yard

It was a beautiful day. Low 70s and sunny, a little breeze.

We enjoyed working in the yard. I mowed the front lawn while waiting for DH to get back from work. When he got home we worked on a few projects in the front yard.

One project was removing the irises and daylilies from this bed because the trees have grown enough to make it too shady for them. Some went to a friend, some were set aside for the garden club’s plant sale next week, and a few were planted along the west fence.

We brought hostas from another bed under a redbud tree that is beginning to die back. That bed is becoming too sunny for the shade loving hostas.

This hosta, Liberty, is striking from a distance. The color is beautiful. We’ve had three summers of drought and now a spring with lots of rain. Perhaps the hostas are going to perk up.

One of my favorite dwarf irises, ‘Irish Chant,’ looks particularly pretty today.

This patch of Sweet William is under the redbud tree by the garage. Very pretty this year!

It was great to spend some time working in the yard. I’m hoping for nice weather again tomorrow. I’ll be able to mow the back yard and pull more weeds.

    I recently found your blog and I love it. What a nice variety of interests you have. Right now I’m especially enjoying the pictures of your yard and flowers.
