Take this shovel for instance.
Every time I see it sitting in the shed it reminds me of the three summers I spent digging out roots, rocks and poison ivy with that very shovel.
Now I can admire it every time I walk this path.
I bought a red caladium yesterday and planted it near the shovels.
I also planted that small coneflower. I keep planting coneflowers and they keep disappearing
On Sunday at our BBQ party, we were talking about invasive plants and my SIL mentioned that coneflowers were one of hers. What? I can't even get one plant to stay alive for two years! I find black-eyed Susans invasive. She can't them to grow well in her garden. Isn't that odd? I guess it all depends on the soil content.
Here is the frontal view of this side.
Since I decided not to plant annuals on the deck this year, I had a bunch of watering cans as well as the milk cans you've been seeing, that were still in the storage shed. I decided to haul them all out and scatter them in different places in the gardens.
To complete my objets d'art I leaned my old wheelbarrow against a tree among some taller perennials.
I am now off to see my hunky dentist. I have a 7:00 a.m. appointment. I am an early riser so I love that he takes such early appointments. I had a root canal a few weeks back and today I get the tooth crowned.
