I make this disclaimer: I have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to gardening. I'm as surprised as anyone that I have a somewhat green thumb.
This is my new daisy bed - shasta, button, gerber, sea-breeze, black-eyed susans, dahlias.
The hostas I planted last year have come back quite well. The back bed is mainly hostas with some coleus, ferns & impatiens.
I was surprised at how large this hosta is. That's my size 8 foot for some comparison.
The clematis is blooming like crazy.
The snowball hydrangea had great blooms this spring. And you can get a peek at the fixed & freshly painted gate.
My big deadline for finishing the backyard was May 30 - Backyard Movie Night. It's becoming an annual event. This was the 2nd annual. Saturday I hung a sheet on the back of the house and the boys set up the borrowed audio equipment & projector. After church Saturday night, people came over to hang out and I had the grill available. We hung out until dark to watch a movie or two. The only requirement is to show up with a blanket or lawn chair.
Forty or so people came and several brought their kids. We watched Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and then a handful stuck around for Top Gun. The weather was fantastic this year except for a very brief sprinkle of rain in between movies.
A big thanks to all who helped set up or man the grill.
Be excellent to each other...and party on, dudes!
