It happened in each room of the house we did last year to this year .. you would think I would get the hint by now?
So .. Garden PA and I had a good talk with our landscaper (Wayne is such a hard worker and a sweet guy .. he also appreciates gardens which makes me happy).
In any case ALL is in hand .. he explained the details so my fears were resolved (for now?)
He has been hand picking the limestone pieces all over again because by ridiculous circumstances his cache was bulldozed over by mistake ... so that really put a crimp in the timing and work.
Meanwhile .. the garden is trying to hang in here even though I have been neglectful having been sick and still not quite in the frame of mind or body to get things done until I really have to.
These rocks are going to be joined much closer together .. for now it was just a prelude to how the shapes are ... shaping ? up.
The scent from this bugbane has been amazing ... it is usually full of bugs enjoying what ever it is they are getting out of it ... I have even seen Goldfinches hop on the flowers which I have never seen happen before.
I have to mention "Blue Cloud" catmint has been amazing .. every time I cut it back it keeps popping up with more flowers again and again .. great for hot dry locations !
I have cut back the oregan a few times and it also keeps popping up with flowers again.
Blue Dragon aster has survived ridiculous drought (meaning my neglect in watering) guilt guilt
The wax bells keep doing their thing in stages so I get to see fresh flowers as the old ones become seed heads
I indulged myself with a Lady Bug Loft that was on sale from an online Nature Shop .. it has a copper eve and is screwed into it's pole with the roof that comes off completely so it can be cleaned.
I can't wait to put it in the garden next year and see what happens.
Lastly just a pretty picture of Little Lime hydrangea with morning dew ...
Some times we just need to be in awe of how beautiful our garden can be even in turmoil ?
