Well ... the luck of the Irish never ceases to amaze me ... meaning the opposite of luck to the fullest!
It has been raining consistently when ever construction is trying to get ahead of the game with the new fence ... let alone the final details of the pathways.
Plus .. when the "boss" left ... care was NOT taken with my garden plants and one was totally trampled on to leave for plant heaven ... one of my favorites that I was so happy to find.
When I saw it was gone , the first thing I did besides moan and cry ... I called the company I got it from and asked if they would have it again .. and there is a possible maybe to that one .. I hope so!
You can always buy another plant to replace one ... but I got attached to that little fellow and the potential it had to be a wonderful specimen plant in my garden .. but never mind ... BIG sigh!
I did say I wanted privacy right ? .. our next door neighbors are fine with that though.
It actually helps support the vines on the arbors .. and might even contribute to forcing more of a warmer micro climate that I can test with some plants that are of a higher zone than 5b.
Even on a gray day like this I appreciate the amazing colour of my Tiger Eye Sumacs ..
The Inaba Shidare is glowing red ....
It is so nice to see some colours popping in parts of the garden still ..
Our Pacific Sunset maple is almost the last tree in the neighborhood to drop it's leaves so that takes patience ... other wise ... even with my lost calycanthus ...
I can't wait for next Spring to play in my secret garden !!
