Things are looking up!!!
No new pictures this time, but I will tell you that my yard is doing better. My Hydrangeas seem to be much happier along the back side of the deck. They will not do much this year, but the leaves they still have left are perky and healthy. I have a good feeling they will look very nice next year. My limelight Hydrangea is full of blooms.:)
I am hoping to get a bunch of loropetalum that I will plant along my fence in the sun. (see pics below) There are 4 rose of sharon, 3 roses and a golden plum, along that same fence, and I'm wondering if I should completley remove them all (not the plum) and make a nice full row of Loropetalum, or intermingle the loropetalum with the roses and rose of sharon.
Your thoughts about this would be great.*
I have attrached alot more animals to my yard as well. At first I liked the thougth of Chipmunks and rabbits, but they eat the tops off all my flowers and dig them out for their own purpose. We also have some big frogs, they seem to be harmless. I have thought about putting in a water feature. Any ideas about the Chipmunks and Rabbits?* I hate to try and get rid of them but I don't want to constantly come outside and see my caladiums and flowers chewed up.
More pictures after I get my loropetalum.
*Write back about my above questions.

Your ideas are great and a trellis with a climbing, flowering vine would set the shrubs off nicely. Good luck with your project. Looking good.
Looks good, you have done a lot of work. I would intermingling them with the rose and Rose of Sharon if you can. Or at the very least move the Roses and Rose of Sharon to other parts of the garden.
That fence looks very tempting! You've got sound advice already, so I'm looking forward to seeing what the result will be. I'm a very bad garden planner, I'm afraid.
That fence looks great and that band of soil right in front of it will make a very nice border.
We do not have ground squirrels here...but we do have rabbits. In fact, if I were a betting man, I'd bet that it was the rabbits that were doing all the eating.
