Summer Project

His rock border
Originally uploaded by jhhymas
S. has taken a great deal of trouble this summer--uprooting the grass rhizomes which were all around the house and making beds with rock borders for the daylilies and some other perennals that we have picked out. The delphinium is blooming now, but most of the rest will not until next year; we are hoping most of them will survive the frozen winter. This is just a little sample of the rocks--the border curves around the house; the rocks are deliciously varied in color.

It finally did rain, and the weeds, trees and grasses are very happy.
Good night.
