Thankfully I have projects on my mind that divert attention to the utter disaster facing me in the back garden .. OK .. not a permanent disaster but darn well an eye sore right now ?
This shot was early June last year and you can see why I tried to "picture" my side only.
My neighbor has a lot on her hands, so I never expected her to garden the way I do.
I have tried to work out a plan that will unify our spaces together in a pretty, but subtle way .. that is where the Halcyon hostas from Costco and a few of my baby Ostrich ferns will come in.
We both have gas meters .. mine is usually hidden by ornamental grass. So I will be asking if I can do the same for Connie's as well. I am concentrating on low plantings because Connie has the wood stove pipe jutting out quite a bit. I don't want her to worry about plants getting in the way.
After I show her what I want to do .. and if she gives me the green light .. I will be finishing it off with black mulch to keep things neat and tidy.
Would you let me have my way with your wasted space ???? : )
I have day lilies, foxglove, blue lobelia, clumping bamboo .. ornamental kiwi vine, Henrii and Niobe clematis in this area .. and a few more tricks up my sleeve to come !
I'm hoping to have one heck of an "after" picture this year with both sides looking gorgeous !
