I no longer have to buy perennials to fill my flower beds. Instead I divide and conquer. Since the last devastating flood in 2008 I've inherited so many weeds because all my flower beds were under water for over a week
In this garden I had a beautiful Bridal wreath Spiria that bloomed in the spring and it got so big that I finally cut it down and lost it in the last flood.. I'm thinking of replacing it. There are some tulips from last year that I hope will bloom again this spring.
This double flower bed needs fixing too, There are some narrow steps that needs widening where you see the bricks askew. The cleaning is just roughly done. I'll use the leaf blower to get rid of the small debris.
This is the right side in front of the house. Here I grow assorted Hostas.
In these wire gages I grow Peonies. The dead foliage has been removed but the weeds are still there.
In this bed I grow Sundrops, Phlox and lilies. It's over crowded too.
On this side of the house I had two windows added and had to have my two trellises removed . I have some clematis growing and a whole bunch of stuff. I cut down one clematis and the other is still hanging from the chimney. I thinks that it enough for today. I still have 5 other flower beds to clean. It's like trying to remember my age, I have a hard time remembering haw many flower beds I have.
I cleaned that island bed on the left side of the path and actually cleaned the flower bed on the right too but the sun was not high enough for a good photo. I'll try again tomorrow. I hope that you did not get too tired of looking at my lifeless flower beds. I'll show them again in their full glory in the spring and summer. JB
