Country Gardens - End of May Driveway and Mailbox

 We have been blessed with a beautiful Spring here in Southern Indiana.
 Yesterday was the last day of school and it is officially Summer here...
no matter what the calendar says. 

 We have had some beautiful days to enjoy this week.
 I have been gardening quite a bit.
Mostly just maintenance and weeding.
 The red weigelias are just beautiful in the driveway beds.
 These two bloomed about a week later than the ones by the house.
The irises are finishing up and the spireas are just starting to show color.
The grass looks beautiful this time of year.
My hubby keeps it all looking so nice. 
He will be going back to work Wednesday after his knee surgery. 
 I think he is ready, I have kept him busy here.
 I love this peach iris, no idea the variety.
 The yellow sedum is blooming by the mailbox.
 I love this stuff, you poke even a bit in the ground and it will root.
 It can take the heat and grows on the gravel.
If it gets out too far, just pull it up.
 I should cut the evergreens back a bit... but they look fine.
I almost have to dig stuff out to be seen.
But I do not water in these beds, so if it is happy...I leave it alone.
 Here is the other weigela, this one is more pink.
It had quite a bit of dead on it early this spring.
But after a good trimming you can't tell a bit.
I love these hearty shrubs.
I have at least 8 of them around the gardens.
I have so much blooming and so much more to share.
