I am still enjoying so much color in my gardens here in Eastern Kentucky. Even though it has been hot and very little rainfall lately, watering has been a must.
One night this week, I accidentally left the sprinkler on all night in one of the bed so those flowers were soaked. I'm sure they loved it.
My purple coneflowers are still holding on and the butterflies are visiting every day.
The zinnias are still blooming . . .
and I love to cut them daily for the table.
We even have them for the breakfast table. That was a very candid shot with our two grandsons and my hubby but you can see the flowers on the table.
You know I love taking pics of the butterflies and bees visiting the flowers. These were taken just this week.
A few sunflowers came up in pots and in the beds.
The goldfinches enjoy the seeds.
Now for the new project. Here it is hot as blazes outside, and we decided to undertake a landscaping makeover in the front yard in a bed near the road.
Here's a pic of this bed in the spring when the azaleas were blooming.
and here is it right now.
We kept the two azaleas and the crepe myrtles. The rest of the over grown bushes were taken out. Plus we decided to expand the bed. New concrete edging stones have been bought and dirt delivered. I'll keep you posted on our progress. It's terribly hot for a project like this, we must be crazy!
Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
