My mailbox Clematis is full of blooms, buds and new growth.
I have been poking my bottom lip out and pouting due to the fact that my Irises and Amaryllis' did not bloom this past season. My wonderful husband removed some sod for me over the weekend so I could make an Iris bed. On the expert advice of Dirt Princess over at http://northmobilegardensociety.blogspot.com/ I dug them all up, cut the fans back, (although she didn't tell me to cut them and it might be a mistake) and planted only the roots, leaving the rhizomes visible. Now I need to go get some mulch, edging..... and see what happens come Spring.
I asked you all about pruning the Gaura.....no one gave me a specific answer. So, I cut both of them way back about three weeks ago. Both of them are coming back with the most beautiful burgandy colored foliage.
Tomorrow is the last day of the first nine week grading period for the girls in school. All three of them are doing fantastic! The ninth grader is now Freshman Class President, the eighth grader made Symphonic Band, she plays the flute and the sixth grader made the middle school basketball team. Going to be an interesting school year!
