another tuesday

this flower bed is the latest addition in my campaign to mow less grass. part of this existed as a narrow strip against the fence with a few hosta, which i repositioned,and some lily of the valley.
i've increased the depth and added virginia bluebells, blue flax, yarrow,lupine,a sweet pea,

and room for a couple something elses one of these days.

we had a plant exchange at garden club today and i came home with a few goodies that i was able to get in the ground before it started to rain. we had a storm pass through. some wind and hail. and just this morning i looked at the tulips under my mail box and thought i should take a picture. but no i decided that one more day and they would be perfect. perfect. we'll see what the hail left for me in the morning.
