I moved the Black Eyed Susan to this trellis. It looks puny, but it will perk up. I couldn't even see my blueberry bush, the BES vine was covering it. So I ripped (yes...RIPPED) it all off and moved what was left of it.

The Hunter's watermelon....it is sprawling all over the place! All in the walkway, oh well
This is my Pagoda Plant...I can't WAIT for it to bloom, not sure when that will be
Zinnia & Bee Balm
Notice anything different here???? The cosmos are GONE! Whew! I had to saw them off at the roots, then pull the roots up! They left huge voids where they were planted. In 2-3 weeks I am going to divide my daylilies and amaryllis and fill in those voids.
Look how bare this one is! You can see where they amaryllis & daylilies are lined out up, that "was" the front of this bed when I expanded it. They will be divided and moved soon, and I will be planting some mums.
It really opened the beds up once they were gone....I heard a few of the plants breath sighs of relief....now they can grow!
Double Prairie Coneflower, I couldn't see these when the cosmos were there.
There was a little breeze while I was trying to snap the picture, so I never really got a good shot.
I have half a million skinks at my house, they love me. I see them everywhere. Apparently I have a lot of bugs for them to dine on. Kiki loves to watch them
This is another plant I am excited to see bloom, it is a Cardinal Flowers (Lobelia cardinalis), and it is awesome. I am going to divide it this year. I got it from my grandma.
This Fall and next Spring I am doing some MAJOR overhauls. I am not 100% happy with any of the beds I have...live and learn. I will be totally re-doing 3 of them. I am already making mental notes. One bed I have in the shade it just green, even though I have blooming plants in it, they never bloom....and it just stays green and drives me nuts!
