Garden Tuesday: Trimming

And by trimming, I don't mean anything I personally am doing.  No.  We hire a landscaper who sends his crew.
 And, at the same time, our lawn guy called to ask if we wanted some rhododendrons that one of his other customers had requested he dig up and get rid of.  Um, yeah.  H*ll, yeah.
 We don't usually drive on the flagstones out front.  But we made an exception this time....
 for the scissors lift.

Another look at one of the free rhododendrons, and, to its right, a massive peony (sorry to stoke your envy, Karin).

 Lots of trimming, and one guy who just ran around with the trash can, picking up the clippings.
So that's Garden Tuesday in my little corner of the world.  Getting ready to host a wedding, including a "pre-ceremony cocktail hour", is harder than one might imagine.  At least I don't have to do the planning!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

To soothe my envious soul, I bought a bunch of cut peonies this weekend. Your patio and landscape is so elegant; I wonder if the flagstone is original?

We have rescued plants in our flower beds from every house flip my husband has done. Since the gardens at those houses are usually in disarray, it feels good to give some flowers a new home.
