the progression of the bleeding heart blooms. there is actually another bleeding heart vine with all white petals and then the red "heart". i haven't spotted any buds on it though.

checking the "to do" list
i have accomplished 3 out of 4 things on my list. well, kind of. i have only finished one daily painting and i wanted to do more, however i have been working on and have completed a couple other larger pieces that i will post tomorrow. here is the latest, "my yellow weed". secondly, i did weed, cut back, and get my edging stones in this bed. unfortunately, i ran out of edgers so i will have to complete the bed with some similar sized grey stones. that's o.k., the edgers came from my little garden shop and they were all that was left. i knew i would be short but i ended up being even shorter than i thought. oh well, good thing i am not a perfectionist. here are 2 "before" and one "after" shot of the bed. now i have room to get in some cool weather flowers like foxglove, delphinium, pansies, alyssum, etc...beforeafter. i left all the vines on the trellis, i am not sure what will die back. i think my bleeding heart may last through the winter but the red morning glory and dutchman's pipe will probably die back. i am still holding out for some blooms on the dutchman's pipe--i think this is unlikely but you never know...
