After all the rain, I finally got to start planting again today. The ground still could have been a bit drier, but I just couldn't wait any longer. I am overwhelmed with all I have to plant and everything that needs to be done. That happens to me every year though. I'm just trying to take it one area at a time.
So today I moved a rose 'Irene Watts' out from under the giant rose 'Martine Guillot'. I planted it on Flower Girl Hill. I also planted one of my new daylilies 'Madge Cayse' there. And I finally got the rest of my vegetables planted there: Four tomatoes, squash, cucumber and lemon basil. I still haven't finished degrassing that garden. That bermuda grass is enough to put me off gardening. I don't want to spray anything there, since I'm growing food. Plus I don't want to spray where chickens go. Let's face it, I just don't like to spray anything. So I guess I'll be digging it out for the rest of my life.
'The Bride' has a beautiful form. It's just a tiny little plant though. I'm going to really baby it this year. It's on Flower Girl Hill and was being smothered by 'Perle d'Or.' I uncovered it today.
