My Tackle It Tuesday Project today - Before.
There was a butterfly bush here, but I trimmed it a bit too enthusiastically the other year, and it didn't come back. :-( The one on the other side of the steps is now huge, and taking over.. but I'm afraid to trim it back! :-)
The iris are blooming! They are one of my favorites, even though they don't make a good cut flower usually...
Just a tad overgrown. :-) I'm really thinking about pulling those bushes out completely.. but for now I really need to trim them back! I cut all the iris that are on the ground here and put them in vases in the house.
More flowers in the house -
I found a plant stand, like a yard sale, but all plants, in Muncy.. everything was $1!
Black raspberries, conflowers, brown eyed susans, shasta daisies, sweet pea, lily of the valley...
I cleaned out the bed to the front of the house, and planted a lot of the new plants in here. It will probably be too crowded when they all get big, but I can always move them later. :-)
In the vegetable garden, my beans are coming up nicely.
