New thread as this may be SLOW to open
Hi y'all. Got a new camera and thought I'd share what I've been up to. Thought I would do it in a seperate thread as these pics are very large and may take quite some time to load for those on dial-up. My apologies as I haven't figured out how to resize them yet.
I have been working like crazy, but when I am home we have been busy installing a new front garden. The new lawn went in two weeks ago and new curvy beds were added (although I must say T's curvy beds are looking better than mine). This weekend as a mother's day treat, I spent the weekend planting away in all that fresh new soil.
Here I am making many plant placement mistakes I'm sure:
And here are some of the results:
This area used to be overgrown with 8 foot tall rhodos (I hate rhodos). Last summer I cut them all out so I could plant something lower growing so we could actually see out the window:
and another shot of the same area:
This area needs many more plants but it is one of my only full sun areas of the garden. Of course iris were needed :)
We added half a dozen large rocks to this garden as we wanted to landscape around them with ornamental grasses. Most of these are evergreen up here:
I will post more pics as things start to come together. I would say about 70% of the plants are in but I won't do too much more planting now until late blooming stuff comes into the nurseries. Right now I have an awful lot of spring bloomers.
Am enjoying hearing about everyone and unfortunately don't have an awful lot of time to share comments. I know I'll leave someone out and do a terrible job of trying to talk to each of you so I won't try just now. But since it is T's birthday - I owe her at least a HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
Hope to be back very soon to share some more.
