Springtime around the spread
° and she accomplished a lot of clean-up. I did get out this past weekend and got a little done. On top is the front yard, now, when it looks fresh and neat. It'll look like an uncontrolled jungle in another month.
|This is the bed that will get the copper coral bell fountain |
I made over the winter. The tub it'll sit in is under the
white think thee-quarters of the way in the back.
This bed will be 90% coral bells when I'm done.
|There were a lot of violets growing in the bed, but I took them out |
and placed them outside the bed where I took a row of brick pavers
out of the patio. It'll soften the edge of the raised bed.
|This'll be my "before" photo. The fountain will go in in the coming weeks.|
|About half of the hypertufa pots & troughs for the garden art sale made to date.|
They're sitting in the rain to help leach the lime out of the concrete.
|I planted lettuce in the potager - and trimmed the unruly rose standard in the middle.|
|I trimmed the pear tree espalier into its diamond shape three days ago |
and it's looking shaggy already.
|The newer pear trees planted are taking their time coming in. If, they sleep in year one, creep in year two.|
and leap in year three, then they'll be leaping this year. Stay tuned.
|The Harry Potter garden got cleaned up, but still needs all the odd-looking |
house plants brought out, and signage added, to finish it off.
|An addition to the Harry Potter garden last year - Bastard Balm. |
A totally appropriate name for a plant in a children's garden n'est pas?
|Front yard from another angle. Tulips are past, but alium are next up.|
|Forget-me-nots not wanting to be forgotten.|
