The landscape is doing fine in spite of my not being able to say I am a Master Pruner (nor Gardener). Proof:
The Mountain Laurels were moved to a nice cool shady location and set out tons of buds. This is April 15
This is May 14
Now they are blossoming
The Cinco de Mayo shrub roses, which were heavily pruned on April 14
budding out and starting to bloom
The Coral Drift roses are blooming too
as are the Wing Dings
The lavender is getting ready to burst forth and bless us
as are the cherries, well, actually the cherries will bless the birds. We never get any
Earlier the azaleas were all in full glory.
This peony has survived in cool shade where the original gardener planted it over 13 years ago but it really needs to move to the sunlight
Maybe that will be done next year.
I haven’t managed to kill off this Malva even though I’ve tried for 3 years now.
I finally found some Evening Primrose to plant in a hot but semi shaded and dry location
its got a pretty flower and a faint delicate scent
Time for a nap 🙂
