comfrey in flower, very hardy plant, transplants really nice
my rosa rugosa, pretty and smells wonderful. what a rose hardy,doesn’t need sprays and winter hardy like crazy and spined like nuts to.
this semi wild rose I forgot the name I practically paid nothing for it, turned out better than I anticipated, smells good too. I know it is either species rose or rugosa hybrid.
mayroses, wild, smell wonderful too,
when my new dawn and explorer climber john davis, well I think that is what they sent me, bloom I will post pictures, they are just so full of buds right now I can’t wait, my blaze is full of buds too so I will post it as well once they are in full bloom, which I cannot wait. oh yea my landscaping is coming along really well, you know it is just like a switch was pulled and I cannot seem to stop coming up with ideas and carrying them out, I keep saying this will be enough now I just have to maintain it and mow regularly then I think of something else I can do to spruce up the yard even better or something else I would like to grow in the garden or something, never happend like this to me before, also I keep saying today I will rest because I am so sore, but then I end up doing something then it leads to something else, not big mind you just little things that add up,, can one become obessessed? or am I just making up for lost time? it is like I can’t stop, help! lol, but when I look at my yard it is just so worth it, I did it myself, I actually accomplised something and seen through to the end (kept my attention and interest long enough to see it completed)if you knew me you would know my motivations and goals are not sustainable, I end up not doing it all the way or not starting it. sometimes I wonder if I have or had adhd or something. or manic depression with emphasis on the depressed side of the coin more than the other. well I hope you enjoy the photos, now get out there and take pictures of pretty things will you and share them I am dying to see what others are doing in their yard, what they seen on the trails that sorta thing.

my poor peach tree has the bad case of leaf curl, I might have to chop it down as I read about the treatments and it si too extensive and iffy to waste time or money, I read that red haven is one that is resistant so I will be getting a couple in the late summer early fall. this really sucks after seeing such pretty flowers. I think it’s roots may hve hit a water pocket underground and is just to wet, makes sense it is a bit wetter on that side then the south side of my house. did get a couple of apple trees tho planted them last week. a yellow delicious and a gala. yummy. maybe i will post some pictures of them.
anyway here are some more pictures I took yesterday, anyone know what kind of bush this is? the flowers are softly sweet and it gets red berries on it and I love it, let me guess it is not native isnt it?
know what kind of shrub this is? I didnt plant it a bird did, I like it so I kept it, it is very thorny and gets red berries on it, the flowers pretty too, here is another picture of it,
I just did this to part of my front yard this week,like? those potted strawberries are only there temporarily until I build a raised bed for them.
plants are the one with no leaves on the bottom stem is a rosa rugosa, the variagated next to the house is varigated grass with snow on the mountain, the plants in the corner are hortatunia, and hardy fig, the plants on the outer edges of the bed are horatunia, two types actualy, the plant by the garage leafing out is a crape myrtle, the plants in the hanging pots one is oak leaf ivy and I don’t know the names of the rest. plant on the steps there is a scafflera, house plant, the trellis will be for red morning glories that are growing in pots as we speak. I have just finished another bed today will post pictures later after I get it completly looking decent, here is picture of my carolina all spices in bloom,
now for the dogwoods
there you have it for now, by all hope you like.
