Driveway Done

Well, I finally finished one thing, I finished weeding and tidying up the flowerbed along the driveway.  It was a hard job because some of the perennials had gotten WAY too large so I had to divide them.  I didn't take a photo because it wouldn't look impressive to you...the plants look a little butchered.  To me it looks beautiful because I put a lot of thought into how it will look next year in bloom.  I moved a bunch of them around.... a foot this way, a foot that way...I think plants should have wheels so they are easier to move!

The Delphinium is blooming....

I have two colors....bright blue...

And this amazing light blue....

The Foxtail Lilies are starting to bloom too!

A male zucchini blossom opened up and I just HAD to have it for lunch!

Stuffed with cheese of course!  Delicious!!!  And I found 3 carrots that were large enough to taste!

I had some customers today.....some peas were picked....all in all it was a good day!
