Lush of Greens in the Garden

I found out that the  dwarf lilac's blooms last longer than the  regular lilac bush.  The two lilac bush  at the side of our home is still in full bloom despite the heavy wind the other day.  It really smells so good whenever we go out the door, the scent  soothes your  nose with it's fragrance.
During the first two weeks of Spring, I did some projects in the garden.  I added   some rocks on the other side of our walkway  because it did not look balance  that I just had it on one side.  I removed the rocks around the  crab apple tree  to use in this project and I replaced it with  mulch.
The mulch was on sale   for the Easter weekend   so we took  the opportunity to buy 30 bags to put some more mulch around the flower beds.  You can click here for a great deal on some of the  gardening  tools and plants.  I also ordered some trees online because it is cheaper to buy it online than in the store.  
I did however bought some dahlias to  add some  colors to our front porch.  
I can't wait for the Asiatic and day lilies to bloom.  I love these plants because they are very easy to   grow and maintain and they  come back every year.  I basically started  a couple of plants with them  then I segregated and replanted them when they got thicker, now I have   so many of them in the garden.
I can't wait to see the blooms of this  pink roses in the middle of the lilacs.
The deer  is starting to eat the  burning bushes and hosta so I bought a bottle of deer  repellent to scare the deer away. 
I also put mulch around the  emerald green pine trees to  add a little pop of color  to them.
Burning bushes are beautiful during the Fall.  I can't wait for them to get thicker so that  we will have a pop of color too in the driveway when Autumn comes.
I have a thick Italian parsley in  my herb garden so I thinned them out and  transfer them to the pots.  I have so many small  pots that I can use for it and they seem to do well as well.
I love gardening, I can do it everyday all day.  I have plenty of things to do around our garden but the rain and heavy wind is hindering me from doing what I want to accomplish.  I still don't have a vegetable garden because I am waiting for the fence to be built before I finally decide  where to put my vegetable garden.  I don't want the deer to  eat  the veggies before they  even begin to  bloom.  So that is it for now, I will update again  next time when the fence is up and I did  my veggie garden.  Hopefully I still have the time to do it  before the season ends.

Your plants are lovely! I was not blessed with a green thumb, but I'm determined to give it a shot this season. Wish me luck!

Lilacs are one of my favorites! I wish they stayed longer, though. Mine are already starting to die down :(

Everything looks so fantastic! I wish I could grow stuff without killing them. I already killed a flower that was in the front yard. Oops.

Wonderful looking land scanning. We always had a lilac bush right outside the kitchen window. I loved the smell while working in the kitchen so much I made sure to plant one when we built our house.

Jeannette said...

That looks absolutely beautiful. I live in the desert so it's hard to get stuff to stay green. I wish I could do it like that. You did a wonderful job.

Mommy Levy said...

This reminds me to buy some white stones and fix our small garden too. I hope I could do it soon. You have a nice garden out there.

I love doing fun projects to enhance the outside of my home! That rock pathway on the side of your walkway looks so cute and those dwarf lilac's are so charming.

Oh my goodness how beautiful does your garden look, I can't imagine having deer wandering around, we have foxes and hedgehogs but that's it.

My Teen Guide said...

I like the white rocks lining your walkway! That was a really nice idea. I still have to do a lot of work in our garden. Your plants are looking good!

Heather said...

I love gardening but not the weeding. The weeds are killing me right now right along with the allergies! The deer always eat my hostas!

You're quite the Green Thumb sis! I wish my hands can do such wonders. Seriously, when I do gardening, the plants never, ever thrive. Never. :)

I really love the look of the rocks on either side of the sidewalk! If we ever have a sidewalk like that I want to do the same!

You have lovely blooms in your garden, sis! I'm not much into flowers. All I have right now are veggies planted in pots. I have no luck with tomatoes, though.
