May Flowers

Okay technically it’s June, but I took the photos in May. The Spring has been long in Wisconsin this year and the colors are beautiful. Got a good start to the front gardens this spring. The back gardens will just have to tend themselves since we have a deck rebuilding project going on.

I am having some fun with containers this year and playing with colors.  I bought most of my plants from one of my favorite greenhouses called Kopkes.

This Mandevilla is doing well on the front steps.  I like its vine like tendrils growing up the sticks.

Out in back, the cosmos continue to reseed themselves.  They grow in the pebbles which make it very easy dig up and replant.  I’ll be moving them to the front yard soon.  This is earliest I’ve seen the flowers.

The sedum wintered outside very well and I just love the shapes and colors.

We are in the process of rebuilding our very old deck.  Lucky for us, much of the wood is reusable as it is old-growth redwood and harder than nails.

Stay tuned for more deck updates.  We have a good building team this weekend.
