Found a rock garden

There was snow on the ground when we moved in and while walking around and taking the dogs out I noticed some large rocks around the walnut tree in the photo above so I commented to Steve that since the rocks were already there it would make a nice place for a rock garden.

Well much to my delight as the snow melted I began to see little bulbs poking thru the dirt and I realized someone before me had the same idea.

And then as the snow melted more I found just how neglected this area had been.

After some clean up we found a Rambler Rose and then transplanted about a dozen of the thousands of lilies since they are juglone tolerant.

Because the bulbs were starting to grow I really wanted to find out what they were so I left them and the weeds alone to grow. They began blooming this week and have been id'd as Star of Bethlehem.

So this weekend I am working on pulling out the Nettles and Poison Ivy so we can get this looking nice. Not too sure at this point what will go in there but when I do there will be pics I'm sure ;)

What a nice surprise to get when the snow melted. Star of Bethlehem are beautiul little plants aren't they?
You've done a grand job of clearing the rockery and I look forward to seeing more pictures of it when you've chosen other plants to go in it.
