The frog sculpture has been placed in the light this year. He spent last summer peaking out of lots of vegetation as if he were in a rain forest.
The one moss rose packet has been planted into the traditional container that I use. The plants need to root in better and then you will see many shots of the flowers and the blue enamel pan. The plant itself is an interesting one with its characteristic foliage that seems to be one of a kind.
While I was out shooting photos of the neighbors sycamore trees I looked down and saw this hosta. Ir really has grown large decorating the entrance through the one blue gate. I had to crop out my white shoe at the bottom of the photo as I took a really quick shot. I want to thin some of my hostas this summer and share with the neighbor who really isn't able to plant flowers any more. Her one flower bed is so under planted and needs some more plants.
I used this photo on my facebook header a few days ago. It is a lazy man's photo as I didn't take the time to deadhead all the spent flowers. It makes things look more natural and it isn't a pristine view.
I have more small jobs to do as I get the outside in shape for the summer. My tomato plants out by the shed are having birds pulling off the leaves. I have watched robins do that. I keep replanting and am waiting for them to take off and grow. The excess rain and cold nights have cause everyone's gardens to be at a standstill. I have a couple of spots to mow this morning as soon as the grass dries. More rain fell last night but it was not measurable Just made everything to be wet.
I am back to walking Barney again as his back legs seemed to become stronger again. They are not back to normal but he takes me farther down the sidewalk each time to visit all his favorites spots down the street. Barney was getting so that he would refuse to go outside in the evening. It was a problem and then we both realized he wanted to go walking on the leash instead of just going into the back yard.
It looks like it will be a good day weather wise for all of the day. A threat of more rain in the night again is getting to be routine. I wish everyone a great weekend.
