I may add some other colors, or lighter/darker versions of these, which seem to be all mid-tones.
I didn't wavy cut any of these strips, but the wonkiness has shown up anyway. It's good to be back in Wonkyville.
This season's big job was waiting for me in the front bed. I needed to move or transplant just about everything, and get the hydrangeas into those new spots. I did it. Five hydrangeas are now gracing that front bed. This makes 11 hydrangeas in all the gardens. Am I done buying them? We'll see. There are so many new gorgeous ones coming onto the scene. I may not be able to resist.
My big triumph is in the back garden. The phlox is gone, almost completely, still a few sprouts I need to pull, but we also decided to move this huge miscanthus grass. It shaded everything behind it, and Wonderful Dave, my manly man,
dug and pried the root ball up and the two of us got it into the wheelbarrow, just as the sun was setting. It weighs a ton. Seriously.
He's got that satisfied look doesn't he?
This massive grass is being moved to the driveway plantings, next to the flowering magnolia and spruce. It will have plenty of room to spread out there.
We've done all of the necessary transplants now. Phew! With gardening, you definitely live and learn, and if you're lucky, you can get a better garden with a few judicious moves.
Let's look at the redbud blooms. So pretty in pink.
