I’ve got t’interwebs back! Hurrah! Just in time for the end of the month and my round-up post so here goes….
Soggy bottom and the new swimming pool wall border are coming along nicely. I think the damp Spring was a really good thing for the new planting.
I planted these last November and blogged about it in this post: New Border Joy!
Also in the good category for this month is the fact that the Saga of the Sick Yews looks like it might be over (touch wood) as the replacements are growing healthily:
Uh oh… lawn issues. Trying not to hyperventilate … oh my lovely lawn…
I think it’s fungal which is doubly worrying as that’s a very neat line up to the Swamp Cypress base. This patch of lawn has never been great and always extra sensitive to dry weather (and it has been dry – all that rain we had seems to have just disappeared) and so this isn’t exactly a new problem, but it’s by far the worst it’s ever been. I am having trouble figuring out exactly what it is, and anti-fungal treatments for lawns don’t seem to be particularly common. Any ideas, dear readers?
The tower border was popular on Garden Day last Sunday. I just wish I knew what the Iris varieties are – the labels are long gone and the plants predate me.
P.S I missed the anniversary last month but I’ve been doing these posts for over a year now! Here’s The Good, The Bad and the Beautiful – May 2011 in case you’d like a peek. Obviously I’d just discovered photo manipulation software and had yet to learn a light touch with the saturation slider bar!
