Pretty blooming things

Here's what's going on in my garden:

siberian iris

scarlet rose


another clematis

Even though I'm looking forward to planting a new one, I'm really going to miss my garden. I personally dug up and moved about ten yards of ugly old landscaping rock and chopped, and cut and yanked out old overgrown shrubs to plant this garden four years ago and it's finally starting to look like something....just in time for me to leave it to someone else. Sigh. I also recall spending several swelteringly hot summer days mixing bag after bag of concrete to make the edging pavers, which at the time I thought was going to kill me. Of course that was before I started building a house and figured out what physical labor really is.
One of the things I love/hate about gardening is that it takes time and it takes time, you know? I really enjoy watching everything change with the seasons and look forward to things sprouting up in the spring. I love that it's a learning experience that can be as simple or as complex as you like. I hope my garden's future owner takes good care of things, because I won't be able to resist checking up on things with a drive-by from time to time.

If they don't, I'll just head over there in the middle of the night and do a little pruning ;-)
Your clematis look great, mine's just a baby.
