Cottage Pictures Transferred This Week....*s*..

It was another beautiful weekend at the cottage. I brought home the thingy so I was able to download some pics from last weekend's planting.

You may remember the previous weekend Ryan finished the skirt on the deck and Marc painted it.
It looked like this all around it....grass.
Last weekend we made flower beds around it and did some planting...
We put in plants like Jacob's Ladder..
and several different coloured Coral Bells
and different kinds of hostas..
and Astillibe...
We put bark nuggets to cover the soil to help with weeds
and helping to keep the plants moist.
and we put them along the side...
The new hydrangea is in this new corner area all alone right now.
  We have to decide what else will go in there. We'll have to finish up next weekend.  We were a bit busy this weekend.  It was Jack's 5th birthday party.
Last weekend while Marc was golfing with Ryan I planted this flower garden which leads to the kitchen door.  Its a very shady spot so I planted hosta and coleus and impatiens.  This picture was taken last weekend right after planting.  This weekend they looked so much stronger already.  I should have snapped a picture.
We'd had some rain on that Friday evening and the deck looks wet still.  I like looking at the cottage like this as it gets dim.  Next weekend I might be met with a change in this look....we'll see...

I really am so happy for this time of year and pretty plants and flowers and nice warm sun!
I hope you had a super weekend too.  Judi xoxo
