Summer is winding up soon and that dos NOT bother me at all .. other than the work I have planned to switch plants around to nestle in for the winter .. and let's not forget all those .. hum ... loads of bulbs to plant as well .. now that is a bit daunting in itself.
I have no idea how companies make me crazy in the midst of LATE Spring this year with more BULBS to plant for next year!
Maybe it was those remarkable patches of pure sunshine aka daffodils, after such a long drawn out winter. I had to have more because this winter could go either way ... really depressing or ? hopeful!
OK .. enough of that and on to the Hakone grass which I scooped up at Costco .. the bargain could not be ignored even by the best of us that would stick to their guns and stop buying plants for the year ?
The Japanese maples also needed some zest which the grass Hakonechloa macra "Aureola" which provide nicely.
