Perky Primrose gets a long overdue drink of water. Cruel amounts of sprinkler neglect never seem to phase her...
Sit a spell. The finishing touch for the Big Rock Garden was a comfy little rocking chair placed amongst the flowers. If I force folks to sit out there they feel obligated to compliment me on my hard work! :)
What is the Big Rock Garden? Well, it's the backbreaking project I have been working on for three summers. Photo below is how it looked BEFORE I launched into my perennial planting frenzy. That boulder is the size of my Jeep Wrangler. Too big to be hauled anywhere. My only choice was to cover it up.
This photo [below] is how The Big Rock Garden looks today. You can barely see my eyesore rock!
Laden with perky Primrose and all sorts of fun flower combinations, like Red Hot Pokers, Penstamons, and Feverfew (graciously donated by Wunx.)
As I was moving the sprinklers around today it occurred to me that perhaps this is why I've been a bit of a slacker with blogging this summer. The Big Rock Garden is all grown up and there's nothing left to say. Other than... I'm so very, very glad.... to be done!
PS: I did it all by myself. :)
