I made a trip to town on Thursday to get my eyes checked again, the one that was hit with the baseball just isn’t quite right and it’s taking the doctor some time to pin point whats going on. While I was in the city I had a few errands to run and to make the trip a little enjoyable I stopped into a big box store to see if any perennials were left.
Not only were they still in stock they were in the clearance section, even better. I told myself don’t by any more pink flowers, if you remember I was trying to add different colors to the garden. My coneflower has stopped producing and I only got one bloom this year so that’s the only pink flower I allowed into my cart.
With everything blooming I can get a better idea about height and plant more appropriately. I purchased 2 of every variety I like them clumped together in one hole for better impact. I’m not fond of one scraggly plant standing alone, I like the full look.
I really like the mix of colors, textures, and heights that I picked out. I hope they look as good once I get them into the ground. It’s supposed to rain all weekends so the ground will be soft for digging and planting.
Here’s what I plan to do….remove the yellow flowers along the deck they were the perfect size when I planted them but as they mature they get taller and taller and they block the view. I think I will move them over in front of our propane tank to hide that ugly thing. I’m going to pull out the lily’s, I’m not fond of their foliage or how they spread. And fill in the blank space on the backside of the bed. Come back soon to see how it looks? If anyone has any advice as to what will look good feel free to chime in.
