Here's up near the gate at the top of the backyard. Storms showed you this little area yesterday. It's a nice spot to sit and check for Oswald.
Speaking of whom, remember last fall when Ammy showed you the condos Oswald was selling in our backyard? Let's go check those!
Just across from those is a cool line up of Minuet Weigela. They're under a couple of Amur Maples. Can you see them behind me here?
OK, fine, I'll move.
Pretty, aren't they? Tasty, too. Just in case you're wondering!
We have two other types of weigelas back there. Here are the Red Prince:
Or should I say that's the Red Prince in front of the Red Prince Weigela? Ha roo roo roo! They're also quite tasty. You know. In case you're interested.
We also have these:
They're called Wine and Roses Weigela. Mom always messes up and calls them "Wine and Cheese Weigela". That has a better ring to it to me! For some reason, Mom didn't let me go taste them. Something about me having done enough "pruning" already. I really don't remember any prunes. Hmmm.
One of the Butterfly Weeds that Aunt Janet sent survived the winter and Oswald. Let's take a look at that...
...And let's take just a TINY nibble, too.
Moving right along, or as Mom said, "NonononoZimmieNO!".... here's Mom's favorite part of the garden.
See that first retaining wall there, beyond the fence? Those are Gold Flame Spirea. That's where the Cat Burglar was that Ammy showed you. Needless to say, since I am a top student at the Stormy Zoluschka Kryschtal School of Siberian Studies, I refused to look at the camera for that "one last photo" request.
I hope you enjoyed my Garden Tour; it's been a pleasure showing you around. I better get back to work. I'm on Sentry Duty at the front door.
That's right ... right by the AC vent.
