Hello from LuLu…
The lawn area looking south…
…and looking north. Blooming in the foreground is a lace cap hydrangea. In the middle distance is a butterfly bush, and beyond that is a purple smoke tree. Daylilies edge the lawn. They’re just starting to bloom.

Finally the stairs are not looking quite so raw. Lady’s Mantle spills onto them and Creeping Jenny is working its way across.
Much of the reworked garden is still in its awkward years, waiting for the shrubs to fill out. Knowing how large hydrangeas and azaleas will get, for instance, I’ve left plenty of room for them to grow. My eyes see it as it will eventually look, but the camera sees it in the here and now. Today’s photos are of areas with more mature growth. It’s so hard to wait for the rest of the garden to come around, as well.
Our sun is in and out, but at least there’s no rain in the forecast. Most likely our prettiest days will come while I’m at work, but lunch on the sunny deck will be nice. Maybe, just maybe Rich will finally be able to refinish the decks. Hoping… Have a beautiful day!
