Well yesterday was Fathers Day but also a Workday for me in Our Woodland Garden. My wife and I own a couple of lots in Woodhaven Lakes Here in Northern Illinois. The lots are 40×110 each and combined have over 30 Oak Trees as well some other Native Trees.
Due to a Family commitment we were not able to spend the weekend there this weekend but I needed to go out cut the lawn and water cause yes just like My Work Garden the whole property is sand great for drainage hard to grow in.
It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect. I finally got the hammock hung up and was testing it out (only for safety purposes of course would not want it to fall with someone in it) As I was sitting there Listening to the waterfall in the pond I was very content to let the birds take what they wanted from the feeders and even take a splash or two in the pond.
A while latter I was standing up on the deck looking down to the fire pit area and out of the corner of my eye I caught a flash and there not two feet from me was a beautiful hummingbird with the brightest red head I have ever seen just stopping by to grab a sip out of the feeder. They never cease to amaze me.
The Asiatic lilies were all starting to bloom as well as the day lilies. The Catmint bed was a blaze of blue and the Russian Sage is starting to spike up. Also the lavender is really blooming this year. Next Weekend the Shasta Daisy should be opening . That is if the deer donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get them too they have been having a pretty nice feast this year.
It has been a long 4 years of work on the site but it is really rewarding to look back at all that has been accomplished in such a short time. And to see things come together makes the work to be enjoyment . But Then that is what Gardening is all about.
Shortly I will be adding some tutorials as well as photos to the site but those things may not be accomplished before the end of summer. There are a lot of weekends between now and Fall and while we have electricity and running water Heck we even have a Flush Toilet there is no phone and No Computer and thats they way I like it But My Wife Really likes that there is no computer.
So I will be working on this site as I can please register as a member and check back often because there will be something new every week maybe not as much as I would like but I will be adding content.
Thanks for Stopping By See Ya Soon!
