What? It’s been 10 days since I last posted? Whatever! Here are some pics of my gardens’ progress.
The plants in the new bed are coming along.
The paths are now covered in gravel. The only trouble being that once you fix one eyesore, It makes other problems stand out like sore thumbs. The plantings here have no cohesion, They simply do not make sense.
Here’s another view. There are very few contrasts, and too many dark plants for such a shady area. And what’s with the left side? It looks like I just stuck whatever in and walked away (which is what I did). Time for a rip-o-rama my friends!
Too many fickety fracken greens y’all! And see that big gaping hole in the middle? I’m thinking a lush, large leafed Hosta in a golden tone would brighten that up.
Enough with the fussing! Let me introduce you to somebody you should know. This is Blue Wheat grass. It is my favorite grass in all of Grassdom. It is also the BLUEST grass you will ever find.
I have yet to find a color that isn’t enhanced by being next to it.
Just remember that it needs sharp drainage to make it through the winters.
This is my second favorite grass. I love its lemony-limeness and the way it catches the sunlight (when there is some to catch). Unfortunately, I can’t remember its name and I’m too lazy to look it up. Ayo!
Jumping over to the vegetable garden, check out the blossoms on these heirloom violet podded peas. I hope they taste as good as they look.
In the Rhubarb border, the peonies are putting on quite a show.
And last but not least, another little plant that I cannot remember the name of, but which I could gaze upon ’till the cows come home. Does anyone know the name of this little sweetheart? Thanks for dropping by.
“Till next time…..
