I read somewhere that there are currently more hotel rooms in Nashville than actual homes/apartments
We’ve gotten quite a few new hotels in the past couple years so not surprised. The Woo Girls have to stay somewhere when they come for the bachelorette parties

First Dutch iris of the year, plus freshly planted Japanese forest grass and hosta.

Pay no attention to the weeds. Just popped up this week with the rain and I sprayed 'em today.

Now that you pointed out the weeds, they are all i can focus on.


Truly beautiful flower though, how many more are you expecting?

There's about 20 of them total, two different varieties. Monet and Picasso. They haven't really spread yet, this is the second year I think.

Last time I posted somebody made fun of my (awful) lawn, I gotta get ahead of it :-D

It's purple/pink flower week! I swear I planned this (I didn't plan this)!

Autumn twist azaleas. Pretty sure these little guys are trying to make up for the deer-eaten older brothers out front, which don't bear photographing. Itoh peonies in the back, look to be flowering any day now.

Globemaster onion and a rhododendron just starting to open up.

Terrestrial orchids. Native to the US as it turns out.

The clematis have gone nuts in the last day or two.

I have a minor to do list around the house and one was to cut back some various vines that are growing up some trees and choking them out. What I thought was going to be an easy project turned into a bunch of bushwhacking and cursing trying to pull out vine that had twisted itself around branches over 3-4 trees.

I managed to get most of it cleaned up except some strands of vine 20+ft up and high enough that would die after while. I am glad that is over with but should have done it in the cooler spring time temps.
