Our garden gate-arbor mission has been going quite well. The Ornamental Kiwi Vine is happy .. it is trying to create it's variegated colouring on the leaves, and has put out some tiny flowers. I'm so glad it is happy. I have been counting on this vine to be the major attraction for the beginning. I didn't want to put pressure on Niobe and Henrii until they feel happy in their new home too .. and I am amazed at how well they have settled in. I don't want to jinx it all by saying it is looking GOOD ! ?
You can see what type of problems I am working with on this side of the house .. gas line .. venting .. so day lilies, dare I say foxgloves, without totally jinxing that one too ?
I have tried foxgloves in different parts of the garden for 3 years .. all foliage but never a flower stalk .. so fingers crossed this side works ? .. Astilbe seems happy here .. so far .. phew !
