Grow Garden Grow

Happy Memorial Day! We spent some time in the garden on Saturday (the coolest day of our weekend) and I’ve got to show off all we’ve done.

We are officially no longer “those” people on the block! Our front yard has come back to life nicely and with a little elbow grease and the help of my parents and cousins, we’ve making it look a bit more purposeful.
Front Yard - Hostas

This weekend we transplanted some periwinkle (vinca minor) from the back yard where they had taken over a strange little bed next to the back door. We divided them into clumps and tried to fill in the empty spots in the front yard.

Front Yard - Vinca

Vinca’s supposed to be very hardy and I’ve been told that while daffodils and tulips can grow through them, weeds will have a harder time. So anything to lessen weeds, the better! The hope is that they’ll spread and cover most of the mulched areas.

We planted the hostas to line the bed next to the path, but at the rate they’re growing I think next season we’ll have to divide some of them out and plant them along the front path as well!

And here’s a close-up of the gorgeous bearded Iris that’s Front Yard - Bearded Iris

Hope you got to spend some quality time with your loved ones this weekend.
