As I mentioned in the Chit Chat forum, winter took its toll on her flowerbed... of the 3 of the 4 'Cuban Gold Durantas' died & the remaining 1 is finally showing signs of life. Both of the 'Mexican Firebushes' & one of her day lilies bite the dust as well. As expected, all the 'Esperanza' died back to the ground, but are sending up new shoots.

After cleaning & trimming, off we went to the nursery... Then we went again... Now we are awaiting the arrival of the last of her plants (these will also be for her 2 front yard beds). I got everything planted that we had purchased & although I still have to plant the remaining perennials/mulch it, I think it came out pretty good!!!

The nursery call last night to let us know the plants have arrived (we'll pick them up on Monday & plant them on Tuesday). I mulched this bed this morning and put Pop's footstone back in place. The day lilies are starting to bloom as well!!!
Man Sam, I bet your FIL had some great stories!

Great flower garden!

Thanks. His flowerbed filled in pretty good during the course of the year.

We did share a few 'war stories' when we were by ourselves over the years... He was a father figure to me & I still miss talking to him.

Such a gorgeous garden and well maintained. I love the different flowers and plants you have there, plus the different colors are so well played together. Our summer has been a wet one, and many of my flowers didn't response to too much rain that great this year.

What a wonderful treat for the eyes!
