New bed for the Hostas

The Bennie had to do a little yard work this morning like cut the grass and edge I had been looking at our blue green Hostas looking so bad in the front garden that we made a new bed in the back yard where it will be out of that hot west sun.
We found this little Mole critter about to do a lot of damage to the yard.

You know how it is when you go to buy bags of potting soil and sand to do a bed. there is always something you see. Look at this lovely Blue Daze.

Have you seen this ? It is new to me . Blue Fortune Mexican Hyssop.

These Prairie Splendor Coneflowers looked so happy in this heat.

Poor baby's ! They better start looking lush and green in about three weeks after all the hard work The Bennie has taken so they could be saved. I told him we would not have found that mole and it would have his yard in a mess by next week. You know woman's logic.

The Blue Daze and coneflowers look so pretty. I'm not familiar with the hyssop. I hope your hostas perk up. It's always a lot of work to move plants.

Those blue flowers are so pretty. How sweet was that little mole! He looks very small. Were his parents around?

My hostas are a mess too. I keep them in a pot because the snails and slugs really mess them up. However I don't think I water them enough. Might move them to the front which faces north.

Beautiful! Your Hosta's will look great there. Have seen the Hyssop but have never grown it before. How are you doing?

Your new hosta bed is going to look terrific. I know exactly what you mean lady. I cannot go get just the plants I planned to. I always find something that catches my eye and follows me home too. The blue daze would have insisted I bring it home and Coneflowers smell so good. I have not seen that hyssop before.The blooms looks so dainty.

The new hosta bed will look "great" in no time.. they are such hardy flowers. Mine have been in the ground for "many" years and are huge.. Guess I should think about splitting them up and moving them..I recall seeing the hyssop some time ago.. it's an interesting flower for the gardens. I still haven't been to the greenhouse to buy any flowers this year.. just no desire to have another project to work on... hope you have a super Monday...hugs ~lynne~

How beautiful...
The blue daze is my favorite, I have two pots, and they are bursting at the seams with blooms.
That's a lot of work you've put in to those plants, good for you !
