Garden update – 01.08.13

We travelled, kids are on holiday, I got sick.. we are not the most productive home renovators right now. Pierre is going through a fixing doors phase, what has great results but are not exactly something we can make a post about. We have 4 doors fixed now (back, front and basemante entrances and guess room door). All of them open and close without extra efforts. It is great. I am so happy I can finally use properly the basement door, without having to unlock it from the inside, going outside the house to kick it at least 5 times to get it open! Yes, I guess the neighbors had fun…

Gardening is taking most of my time (but I do have some other side projects that will be posted as soon as they are completed).

I planted a white phlox in the front garden, with the pink ones. We even had some flowers!

The equinaceas fully recovered this year.

All the hostas have flowers right now, even the ones I transplanted or planted this year. I got some pictures but there are some that I didn’t photographed, I will include in the next post.

The coreopsis are also very beautiful, as you can see in the picture above. Some have more flowers than other, lets see how they go next years. Maybe there is a difference in sun incidence.

We also got a late lupin, it a nice pair for the hosta in the front garden.

The hydrangea is something this year. And that is after I cut some flowers to decorate the house!

Finally, I found some beautiful hollyhocks at a very nice price and could go forward with my plans of planting some on the tulip bed. So now we have two double pink hollyhocks!
