 Did I say that I was finished tweaking???
I never said that..If I did, I lied.

I thought I needed a little more color in my garden.
I just love Cone Flowers.

The local nursery was selling their perennials at 20% off.
They should have been giving some of them away..
They were pretty ragged.

On my way home,
 I thought about how hard it was to plant anything here.
Lot's of roots, soil that hasn't been worked forever, etc.

So, I asked a friend who does the landscaping
 if she would mind helping me out.

Fortunately, she agreed.
I tend to forget that I can't do all this stuff anymore
 and bite off more than I can chew.


She came over on Saturday and "we" got them in the ground.

I never would have been able to do it.
Some of the roots she went through were a good inch across.
I would have quit !!

Thanks for not being a quitter.!!!

It should be quite lovely when they all get mature!! You'll have an English cottage garden by then!

Such pretty colors! Glad you had help. Tough ground is... tough!

Lynne said...

That's what friends are for . . . ( think those are words of a song, aren't they!)

I like your variety of cone flowers . . . I must look for some at the market!

Looks great! Anything from the daisy family grows well under tough conditions, I believe.

That flower bed is going to be so pretty when all the cone flowers take off. I just purchase a red and yellow myself. Here's to a great day!

Love the variety of color. Your garden will be the envy of many, me included.
