A Grandson's Handiwork

100_2515 A few years ago I had made a rock garden.  Then a couple of years ago a lady came flying around the corner in her car and did my rock garden in.  Last spring we left it alone to see what plants had survived.  This year Sam said he would give me 8 hours of his time on a nice day to do anything that I wanted done in the yard.  Yippee.  So today I gave him some basic instructions as to what were plants and what were weeds.  This is what he came up with.  The pink flowers are from an ivy germanium that is on a shepherd's hook.  The bush in the rock pile is false indigo and gets neat seed pods in the fall.  Right now it has blue flowers but they aren't showing up.  We worked outside today and I got all my plants planted in containers.  Still have three perennials to plant when I decide where I want them. 

I grilled hamburgs but they didn't compare to the ones that grill guy did in Trinidad at our granddaughter's wedding reception.  LOL

Now it is housecleaning time as Samantha (Sam's girlfriend) is coming up tomorrow evening for a couple of days.

Hope you all had a nice 4th.

What a nice thing for Sam to do! He did a good job. The flowers are beautiful! I'm home alone and about to do a little housekeeping, too! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
