The ‘C’ garden, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.
This use to be the Circle garden, but Bri kept hitting a few box hedges on the right with the mower and they met their demise. It now looks like a ‘C’ which is the first letter in our last name! I realized my box hedges are a few different kinds, but just this year. It doesn’t bother me a whole lot, but the 3-4 different ones are bigger and needed more shaping. This is the garden where my irises, dinner plate hibiscus (the deer like to munch them), some Gladiolus and Black-eyed Susans are planted. I added a Julia Child yellow rose bush (gift from Brian), a gorgeous orange Wall Flower,
a pink Columbine and a few others. I think it needs mulch-I love and hate the stuff, but it sure gives the gardens a finished look, but my poor back is already bad this year.
Update-that’s a pot of Hens an Chickens on the white stand
and a shallow bowl with colored glass too. Where the bowl is use to be where we had one of the monstrous satellite dishes.
Lovely! Everyone tells me how easy hens-and-chicks are to grow, but every time I’ve tried, they’ve all died.
How cool to have a ‘C” garden since it’s the first letter of your last namel.
I just bought a Julia Child rose to add to my garden! Now I’m trying to figure out where to plant it. 🙂
