Rainy Days Are Needed.........
My first iris bloom snapped of when I braked to quickly while driving. The bunch tipped over and the bloom detached from the stem.
I seem to be experimenting most of the time when I garden. This rock garden of the former owners is boring. I used a garden hoe and dragged out a lot of rock to make a hole for planing. I dumped good garden soil in the hole as I planted the hosta plants. The hosta plants had perked up more this morning from yesterday afternoons planting. I think that hosts will probably growing into rocks along with the soil I used.
I planted the two hosta plants in this small area for now. I am not certain what the plant is that is on the right but it might me a coneflower.
I will be working at the new house today. We have rainy weather so the lawn will have to wait for another day for its mowing. I have so much to do in the house and things in the garage to take down to the basement for storage. The arrangement of the basement is still in limbo until the new floor in the office/studio has been installed. I won't write about that for now. Maybe Thursday or Friday it will happen. I need to call the number one flooring company in Iowa and ask how many crews do you have and why one of them can't come in and do this simple job. They do seem to make sure they get paid even though they don't worry about delivering the results.
Thanks for stopping by today.
