I’ve been meaning to do this post for over a week but we’ve been super busy. Between the gardening, opening the pool, the gorgeous weather and the socializing there just aren’t enough hours in a day.
Anywho, here is my tree garden filled with pretty flowering perennials that will hopefully fill out nicely over the next few years.
There are hosta, violets, bugleweed, ferns, dwarf goat’s beard, tiarella, heuchera and some annual begonias for their bright red colour. They go all the way around the tree in a pattern. It was much harder than I thought it would be to remain consistent and I had to move a couple of them.
Boy was it worth all the work though. Such a difference from the barren waste land that it was just a couple of weeks ago. I’m beginning to understand why people do this sort of thing. Gardening is incredibly rewarding.
And in keeping with tradition, despite the distraction of their Comic Con weekend, Hubby and Daughter still managed to bring me home a lovely Mother’s Day gift.
Though not as bright and flashy as his backyard counterparts, this guy sits quietly in the flowerbed beside the front door with his sign to welcome visitors. I haven’t named him yet but I was thinking something like Willhelm the Welcoming. What do you think?
