I heart boxwood borders. When we built this house it was the one and only landscape idea I had. Well, besides I wanted the house to have a “cottage-like” feel to it. By “cottage-like feel” I suppose I meant I wanted it to look a little dreamy.
The wisteria over the gate is starting to come back to life. See that big rock in the middle of the photo? I have purple cone flowers planted there. They bloom around mid August.
Instead of spending big bucks on moss to line my flower baskets I use spent daffodil stems. Works like a charm.
I spy with my little eye the handsome husband mowing… AGAIN!! He is now up to mowing 2 times a week. In the height of summer this man will mow 3, count ’em 3, times a week. I used to think he was a little weird, but almost all of the other neighbor men mow this often too. I think there is something in the water here. I honestly do not think it is normal to mow your lawn 2-3 times a week.
In other Lawn & Garden news, I discovered I planted green arrow (shelling) peas and not sugar snap peas like I had thought. I know this because they are starting to bloom and they are only 3 feet tall. Oops!
