First mission was to dig out old baptisia which I can state without reservation (holy shit !!!) .. it was one of the most stubborn plants I had ever come across .. and I really couldn't save any of it .. which is fine because there are new cultivars that are smaller and more suitable for limited space .. so on with some pictures ?
But once the garden starts growing and the plants get happy .. this space will soften .. especially with the climbing roses .. fingers crossed !
I have a small dappled willow (Hakuro-Nishiki) planted behind the bench which will fill the back for green privacy .. there are cone flowers on either side for added interest .. and then the climbing roses on each side .. sounds like a lot but I am hoping it will work out the way I see it in my garden brain?
We are in for some rain these next few days .. which we really need for the garden .. to soften and wake up the ground and plants. I know plant orders will start to trickle in .. the roses for sure !
I will be out there prodding and poking the earth to squeeze my plant kids in !
