Almost finished? hahahahaha
Does it ever really come to an end? Just when I think I have it all done and can sit back to just enjoy it with only doing a little weeding now and again....I think of some other garden area I want to create, find another plant or bunch of plants I want or find another piece of junk to turn into garden junque....and that requires a special area too.
There really is no more space for plants....at least until I give the ones out there a chance to grow and see how full they get.
And no place for more garden areas until we get some trees trimmed back and a couple of dead ones taken down. (that is our job for this weekend) Both the peach and the redbud are almost 30 years old. The peach tries every year, it blooms and sets some fruit but they drop off before reaching marble size, then limbs start dying. The redbud didn't even come back this year. Those areas will still be pretty much shaded by the hackberry tree. I already have some Horseherb out there and would love to make a shade garden with lots of Hosta, Ferns and Impatients.
As far the garden junque.....I found a thing that was just way too cool to let the trashman take away a couple of weeks ago. We think it had been used by the neighbors to hold pool cleaning equipment. It is two tall shutters at a 45degree angle on a base. Pictures will be forth coming when I am finished with it. I am painting those wooden birds I mentioned in another blog entry that my Dad had made many years ago...they will be hung on it and it will stand in a bed area right behind the house.
I also posted a Wanted on the rEcycle list I own asking for old, wooden, rickety ladders. I was given one this week and we are picking up two more tomorrow. One will be a squirrel feeder.....on the other side of the yard from the bird feeders so maybe they will leave the birdseed alone....I can dream can't I? The other two will become trellis', one for a Cypress Vine I found coming up in the middle of the Mint Marigold, the one I had in that spot 3 years ago reseeded and they are just now coming up. The other one I will come up with something to use it for later.
See what I mean!!!! And I haven't even started on the front yard yet.
