Just happened to have a few on hand. We have Supertunias, regular 'tunias, hosta, lilies, and basil. That'll work out just fine until we decide what we both want.
In the meantime the hydrangea are much happier in the shade with the rhodies.
Out in the back garden, the rains have stalled the mulch spreading for a day or two. The new mulch looks so much blacker than last year's, but will fade into a medium brown by the end of summer. Even tho this is made up of twigs and ground bark, it degraded nicely and some of the plants found it to be the perfect planting medium for seeds. We had volunteer phlox, nasturtiums, redbud trees and maples. In a few years it may all become real dirt. More garden!
To unkink our weary muscles we had a long soak in the hot tub and reviewed the work we have done since moving here. In the beginning we had no master plan, and no understanding of what would be developed as we inched along, experimenting with little projects. Each small improvement gave us courage to try something bigger or rid ourselves of things that the previous owner started and turned out to be not so great. Not everything we tried was a bang up success either, but we live and learn. We wish our parents could see what we made here, they wouldn't believe it.
One note of appreciation came from a member of the road crew doing some repaving down the way. He shouted " I like your place".
OK. That works for me.
