Thursday In The Garden With Grace


Welcome to my garden tour.
Last week my brother Ping told you that our 'rents
were doing "something".
That something was to remove some VERY mature
azalea bushes from the flower beds you see below.
They also removed all the old rotted out wood surrounding the beds.
There were 4 pallets delivered.
2 held mulch.
1 held wall retaining pavers and the last one was additional soil.
So in all they put down 85 pavers,  150 bags of mulch and 40 bags of soil.
They were very tired.

Silly Momma forget to take "before" pictures.
And she could not find any pictures she had on file of a "before" either.
It's not strange because those azaleas were not very attractive.

Momma also got Daddy to take down a big sticker bush and
replace it with additional lattice 'fencing'.
It keeps the privacy inside our little garden on the other side.
Next year our new flower bed will be filled with more amaryllis and lilies.
Momma and Daddy found a place online where they ordered lots of new bulbs.
It should be glorious.

Now for Momma's inside garden "UP CLOSE".

I hope you enjoyed my tour this week.
Please don't forget to check out the Master of the Zen Garden, Jonesie
for more beautiful garden.
Until next week!

What a beautiful garden! The new bed is already so pretty and neat. What a big snoopervision job this must haf been!

Sparkle said...

Wow, having a garden is a lot of work! Maybe that's why mine looks so bad - my human does not work on ours at all! And if she did, things would probably start dying.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

That was MAJOR gardening work! No wonder your parents are tired. We're curious, though. What's a sticker bush?

Old Kitty said...

Glorious garden photos! What a lot of work your beans did -- and you all must be so exhausted from having had to snoopervise them!
