Here is the first one, out front of the house I have thriving hens and chicks, Asiatic lilies getting ready to bloom (I planted 3 and
they multiplied to 8!) and my favorites are the vibrant pink ones that come back first thing every year starts with a D and can never remember their name!

More Columbines at the side of the house just past the Iris, and past the Columbines are mini roses and moss roses but
do not think you can see in the pic.

Last picture is a shady area along the fence, the sink will eventually have plants in it. Under it are Impatiences, and polka dot hypothis?

Almost forgot the Clematis! It is not in the shade garden, it is beside it in the sun

So glad I took the pictures, had the Clematis do its first bloom and then about a half dozen more blooms, anyway the severe hail storm this morning pelted
all the blooms off, Columbines blooms got pelted and laying it the dirt...mud, tons of flowers got smashed and busted....it was awful, they had snow plows out
getting hail off the streets. The street right outside my house had the appearance of a raging river and sounded like one with hail floating in it, it sounded like someone throwing bricks at the house for a full 10-15 minutes. It happened around 3:15 A.M and I had to leave the house at 4:30 to go to work and there was still
slick spots of compacted hail. Our entire neighborhood has tree leaves all over, the street was a sheet of green and the city was out with leaf blowers, it
looked like a tornado hit or a war zone, it was BAD. And the weather on the news just said it is going to be 38 degrees in the next few nights, and we also
have a thunderstorm coming....the mud will never dry, my poor Astilbies are sitting in mud and they do not like that.......maybe I will in the future not plant until late May. I have a tree that has blooms of white flowers, the patio and flower gardens are deep with all those blooms all over the ground, very frustrating, leaves
and tree twigs and small branches scattered all over the lawn and driveway. I am on day 9 of my 10 days straight working and Friday am off for 5 days and wanted to
plant more in the yard, not do major cleanup!, it was looking so good and looks sad now, hopefully the flowers can bounce back from this and hopefully not sit in
much too long, but like I said, they are talking more rain! OK, done with my rant, life will go on, my problems are nada compared to many, I do count my blessings
in general.

All naked now, the hail took every single one of them. Glad I at least got a picture. I had given them bone meal in hopes they would
stay longer, then the hail.

Darn Linda, sorry to hear about all the destruction! But everything looked great beforehand (particularly like your shade garden) and most of it should come back.

So sorry to hear about the Hail Storm that destroyed all your flowers. We wait all year for that flower show. Hard to take when Mom Nature takes away our joy. No doubt, they will come back fur another big show. But yes, our yards are a lot of clean up work. It seems never ending.
Hang in there!

As I said, the hail storm knocked the hell out of them and took all the blooms, but yay!!! I had 4 more just bloom, so
I have a few more to enjoy.
