My Work in Progress

Earl and I spent most of the weekend working in the flower gardens. His tiller broke so we ended up doing all the digging and tilling by hand. It was a lot of work, but it looks a lot better.

This is the root Mallory and I pulled out of the ground from a thorny bush. The bush part wasn't very big, but the root was a pain in the butt!
In New York hosta plants seem to be very popular. Who ever lived here before lined the front of the flower bed with hostas. They're okay, but not my idea of the main plant I want in the flower bed in the front of the house. So Earl, the kids and I dug them all up.
and spread them out along the side of the house where there wasn't anything growning.

and now this is what the flower bed looks like. I transplanted some Iris' and kept 3 of the hosta plants, 2 lilac bushes and some Lily's are in the flower bed so far. Earl is going to go buy me some little flowers today to add some color and fill in spaces while the other plants grow.

This is a lot of what I've been up to. I can't wait to get more done and see how pretty it looks!

I would be sore if I worked that hard in the yard. My favorite flowers are the iris. They are starting to bloom in our area. I just love all the colors of them and I don't have any in my yard:( I am not a yard worker. Can't wait to see what your's looks like when it all blooms. I know you will be rewarded for all your hard work. Have a wonderful day! Twyla
