The past while I have been working on a new garden project. To the south of my fairy garden was a spot that wouldn’t grow grass and just became overloaded with white pine needles. I decided to turn it into a garden area last fall and began working on it.
I had torn the bricks from my old herb garden and wanted to do something with them. I stole them from the State Bank of Davis after it was built. They had discarded a lot of unused bricks, some whole and some broken in half. I took the whole bricks to the south west side of the house and made several planters out of them.
I have since filled the planters with Japanese iris, Blackberry Lilies, my transferred Japanese fern, a transplanted Bleeding Heart and I purchased a delphinium last week to go in also.
Two weeks ago, I laid down newspapers and covered them with weed barrier. I hoped to kill most of the weeds that were still growing. This week I got brown mulch and filled the garden bed. Yesterday I purchased gold mulch and filled the pathways. Ta da -- a new garden.
I have to finish spreading the gold mulch today in the upper flower bed. And then, I have to put in some time weeding and getting rid of some irritating plants that are trying to take over. Anyone out there looking for some daisies? They must be thinned.
My hollyhocks are looking so beautiful in my flower garden, thank you very much Noeha Garard.
The dog is growing and is a happy camper.
Life is good.
Peace be with you.
