Wayne has been working six days a week for the past couple of weeks, so a three day weekend gave him more time….to work on our organic vegetable garden! I selected our annuals and living accents. Here’s how it all came together:
Pink petunias for the front door we never use. (It’s a Maine thing to never use the front door!)
Verbena, Calibrachoa and Petunias for the barrel planter in our front yard.
And even more, hanging. They are such beautiful, colorful flowers that thrived at our house last year which is why I felt comfortable buying many more this season.
This bumble bee appeared seconds after I hung the plant on our deck.
Our Azalea is almost in full bloom! The Rhododendrons should be blossoming very soon.
The succulents survived the winter in our vintage donkey planter, so I decided to buy more.
I planted them in the pair of vintage Grecian urns by our side door (that’s really like our front door).
Wayne planted the new colorful pink and coral roses after transplanting the white roses to the back side of our house.
Next, the vegetable garden.
Setting up the new irrigation system!
Sun Sugar cherry tomatoes, Beefsteak tomatoes, Cherokee Purple tomatoes, Carolina Gold tomatoes and Hansel eggplant planted!
The lovely ferns and wild daffodils in our woods.
He really lived up this wonderful day in Vacationland as Wayne continued working.
The netting is up, which means he’s all done until it’s time to put in the stakes!
Wayne was treated to a special dinner. I made rib eye steaks from cows pasture raised in Maine with mashed potatoes and Wayne’s favorite, a hot chocolate chip cookie cake for dessert (it’s my own recipe.)
