The last big garden project–a stone path through the hydrangea bed. Here it is from one end:
And from the other end:
The hydrangeas are big and lush this year. I can hardly wait for them to bloom. And that reminded me of how far we’ve come. Here’s a before–they are one of the first things I had MLG put into the ground–April 2013. They were small and spindly from too many years in a pot.
And here they are now!
Here is the sad Japanese maple, growing out of its planter box–the tree that started this whole garden project.
And when the first bed was complete, the tree had a new home.
Here is the same tree today!
I’ve been scoping out the nurseries, and got a few new plants. This is a moss rose. I love the delicate coloring, and the bit of lime green in the center.
I got these lemon drop something-or-others. They do well in the shade. And the deep red petunia is a different color for me. And some blue lobelia, because they are just so darned pretty.
The first (and only) bloom from the J&P rose I got last fall. It is still a tiny bush. But I like the color of the bloom, and it does have a very nice smell, as promised.
This is the snapdragon I got from Annie’s last year. It is a nice delicate apricot color, which I love. I hope it will re-seed itself, or at least stick around for another year.
And that’s all the news that’s fit to print this Sunday morning. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
