Saturday Project/Rain Garden

As you can see we had a little rain last night so the rain garden got a workout. It must have came down pretty fast since the rain garden over flowed. That is the 2nd picture in case you were wondering. I guess I won't be doing any planting today!

This is one of the things I did on Saturday. Scoot says finally you got the downspout buried and the Azales planted, it's only been 2 months that you have been talking about it. My reply is kiss my a--!! But it does work we had a thunder storm this morning and I ran out side to see if the water was coming out of the end (that is the round green thing) in the yard and it was. I'm so happy!!

Well Cliff, atleast you won't have to water for a few days with your recent rains. Loved your comment on the azaleas and down spout(opportunities). We gardeners always have several projects going on. Heck, I've had some plants in pots for several months before I planted them. You know how it is when you do a nursery run and you see something you have to have, but don't have the location selected in the garden yet.
All the Best, Bob

Cliff, I don't think with a house and garden you will ever be without a project. We just talked about that yesterday. If you don't mind, do you think you could send a little rain over here? Only a little please. Greetings from Germany, Andrea

Bob, Yes I do buy plant without a clue where to plant them and yes I had a red twig dogwood in a post for over a year. It finally gave up on me:(

Andrea, wish I could send you rain. I went outside a blew real hard in your direction but I don't think it did any good!!!

Cliff, If you like red twig dogwoods there is a newer hybrid thats a beauty. This spring I've been buying it for the nursery I purchase for and I couldn't keep it on the shelves. It has more pop in a winter landscape then the traditional red twig. It's called 'Mountain fire'.

All the best, Bob

Thanks Bob, I will have to look for that.

Don't you love it when a plan (or a downspout) comes together? And two months to plant the azaleas? Not bad! There's a lot to do in the garden and everything will eventually get done.
