It was a great day to move plants

It was nice and cool and I spent from 7:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. moving plants to fill in bare areas.

I moved a golden privet shrub here because I liked the golden yellow-green color. I think it will be nice to have some color that will stay all season.
I will keep it trimmed down to about this size. This is another shrub that is easy to move. Again I dug a big hole, filled it with water and then stuck the shrub in. I flooded the area with more water once it was in the ground. So far it's as happy as can be. Way across on the opposite side you can see a couple of tall yellow spots. Those are the Margarite daisies that I told you I was going to move. They were a bit more finicky and I cut a couple of them way back because they were throwing a little snit about being moved--all droopy and sulky.

My Tango lilies called 'Cappachino' just started blooming. I didn't move them.

Around noon I went to the art show on the bay. I bought this lizard.

I decided it was a she and named her Lizzyanne. Unfortunately I was moving the hair allium to this area and I dropped Lizzyanne on the rock paver and she lost her foot. I am just not cut out to be a pet owner! :)

I also spent about three hours cooking - I made sweet/sour pork, rice, chili, and two pans of lasagna. Now I won't have to put much effort into making dinner for the whole week. The chili is still cooling so I am off now to see if it's ready to put away.


  1. Noy you're not kidding, todays weather was absolutely gorgeous. It's been the prettiest day yet in St. Louis. Love those tango lilies.

  2. You've been busy and everything looks pretty.
    Wish I felt like cooking like that. : )
    I ripped out a lot of ornamental grass that had taken over the daylily garden. I'll have to watch the one clump I left and cut off the stalks in the fall.
    Love that lily too!
