Noooo I don’t mean Desperate Housewives… I’m not that desperate.
Did a little spring tour of my gardens last night before dinner for some inspiration. You may see some of these in the near future.
Our wild vine on the side of the house which creeps all over our porch and invades everything is a wisteria vine. How I hate trimming it all year long but for the next two weeks it shines with big purple cone flowers. Truly, my mom made be do this post because she’s amazed that wisteria actually grows in this area. Many people have the vine but it rarely blooms as regularly as our does. Every year in the first part of June it never fails to bloom. I wish I could take credit for it but it came with the house.
In the next couple of days it should be in full bloom and in it’s glory.
Lots o apples this year. Last year we only had one measly apple. YEAH FOR APPLES!
I almost missed this little guy. Our lovely neighbors last year decided to chop down their hedges with a chainsaw. Not what you call beautiful. So I decided to plant clematis on our fence to hide the view. This one hasn’t grown very much but I think he was saving up to bloom early.
I anchored the climbing hydrangea on our new fence out back. I’m surprised he made it through last years fall construction of the new fence but he fared well as you can see.
Kasper was helping me weed last night. Very thoughtful of him
Yellow Irises are out and about
All the rain we’ve gotten has made my hydrangeas very happy! I’m going to have lots of bouquets soon.
The yellow empress is on my summer desk.
My new outside desk thanks to my parents.
On the front porch I have the webmaster orchid. I thought it was the perfect name for me so I had to snatch it up when I was at the nursery.
Our heirloom roses are about to bloom. Just on the verge of glorious clove scented backyard. I’ve tied them up and wrangled with them but they are a bit of danger in the backyard as they try to take over the pathway to the house. I think of it as my own home security device.
Romaine Lettuce, all sorts o peppers and herbs. YUM!
And I’ll leave you with a peony that’s very pretty… and slightly out of focus. Bear with me… New camera and I’m still playing with it.
Hope you’re gardens are blooming!
Now back to designing…
