So, I successfully weeded and think I left all the good bits as the beds are really separated by each bush or flower. In order to figure out how to care for these lovelies I need to figure out what they are:
I am pretty sure these are peony bushes. There is a rose right in the middle which you can't see (I grabbed it with bare hands thinking it was a weed). These are overtaking the yard - either I am going to have to prune them down or remove some of them - anyone?
They are a little weather beaten and past blooming stage so don't look that great right now. The bumble bees love them though - they were very friendly and happily buzzing around when I was weeding.
Not sure what most of these bushes are, again, I think I will have to do a bit of trimming as it is looking a little overgrown.
Day two of the 1400km road trip was not nearly as photogenic as day one as it rained most of the day and the pretty bits were when I was careening down the mountain highway with no pullouts with a semi truck on my tail.
Here is a shot of Horshoe Bay Ferry Terminal(from Vancouver to Nanaimo Duke Point) lineup and one off the back of the ferry as we left port. I missed the ferry by 20 minutes due to construction traffic so had a long wait for the next one but I was so close to home at that point so I just sat back and relaxed.
Guess what? I get to do the trip all over again next Monday with a one ton moving truck and hubby by my side as we bring all of our downsized crap to our new home.
Finally, I have been harrassing crabs on the beach to pose for me - this little guy was none impressed.
Hubby safely arrived so today we shop for a bed(we have been sleeping on a Coleman airbed) and start painting our bedroom. Cheers!
