Memorial Day in The Dirt Queen's garden

I went to The Dirt Queen's (aka mom) house for Memorial Day. My family from Birmingham was there, and we had a great time. My mom has only lived here for a YEAR!!! It looks AMAZING for her to only have been here a year!!! They are building a garage, and will putting up a privacy fence soon. Right now she only has flowers beds around the house. As soon as she gets the fence up she will have new flower beds everywhere. The Purple coneflowers are AMAZING!!! They are everywhere. The one I bough last year died!! Mom gave me a few of hers to plant. I hope mine will look like this next year. You can click on the photo to enlarge. The mophead hydrangea is HUGE!! Look at the size of it compared to my hand.
The bees were enjoying the sage. There must have been 20 bees on this one bush.
I can't wait for them to get their fence up, her garden will be amazing. I wish I had pictures of their old house. The garden there was amazing, unfortunately they moved......my mom didn't get hardly any of her old flowers from there. It all happened so quick. If I ever move, I hate it for the people that buy my house, because I will dig up every plant in the yard and move it with me. I don't care if I have to hire everyone I know to help me dig and re-pot. I put too much time, effort & money into my yard to leave everything there for someone else who may or may not like gardening....so I will just take it with me!!

Dirt Queen has done ALOT in a year! When I moved from my old house I saved coffee cans, milk jugs, anything I could plant things in. All "splitable" plants, and as much of them as I could. I moved the very last of April so everything was just coming up so it was easy to side it all. I felt like a Mother to all my plants I had put out and had to take them with me!

It really does look great. I love the coneflowers, I can't wait to see mine, but it'll be a while.
I would have a hard time leaving this garden behind too, I think I'd be doing a lot of digging too.
