I am going to try (really hard) to do a weekly update of the yard because I love looking back on things and seeing how much they’ve grown. I am going to go in the order of the garden beds I numbered for you. Check out the map of my yard to follow along. Remember these are not “finished” shots, just what’s going on right now. And less talky. More pictures!
Garden 1 got some mulch! I also took out the sad plant that was “dead” center and replaced it with a hydrangea that was not thriving where it was (garden 9).
Still in garden 3, but heading into the shade, the hosta are getting bigger every day. I keep spraying them with Repels-All as they grow, otherwise the deer will make a nice snack of them.
I’m in the process of adding stone dust to my gravel walkway, that’s the discolored area you see. The kiwi vines are going crazy and I can’t wait to see if we get fruit this year.
The front side of garden 8 is filling in nicely. The liriope (lilyturf) up front is newly planted from a 6 pack, so they are small, but I’m sure they won’t be for long.
And finally… this is the other end of garden 8 by the garage. These Euphorbia are growing like crazy!! I had no idea what they were when I bought them, but I definitely likey! I’ll have to take a better picture too. The purplish plant in the middle is Blackbird Euphorbia and the bright green one to the left is Ascot Rainbow Euphorbia. And no, I don’t know these names off the top of my head. I just dug through a container of about 100 plant tags to find it. But it does get me motivated to identify each tag and tell you about each of the plants in my garden. At least I’ll pretend I’m doing it for YOU, but really I would love to have that info for ME. 😉
Thanks for hanging out in my yard with me this week!
