The End

I think I've done as much as I can in the yard, without SR becoming impatient with me. That is in the way of plantings. We will still work on the deck/porch project.

I added a few more bedding plants to the new bed and I'm hoping they will fill out and look nice. I'm thinking instead of placing more rocks around the back of the tree, I may just plant some azaleas next year. I'd love to see them grow really large like Mr. S's. It would make a nice backdrop.

I added the some of the same bedding plants to the old bed around the other tree, and freshened up the mulch.

That's it for the back. Then I went around to the side, and added some mulch to a little bed I created on the south side of the driveway.

There are some plants in there you can't really see, but they will grow up some and fill out. Notice the plant stand? It is the base of my old bird bath. The bowl crumbled so I purchased an inexpensive clay dish, painted it white, turned it upside down and Ta Da! I tried turning it up and using it as a birdbath, but it really wasn't deep enough.

And finally, the front.

This poor hydrangea is so sad. I bought it because it was cheap, and I haven't seen any others. I was afraid I'd miss out and was determined to have one.
The darker hostas are finally coming up.

So, there you have it. Th-th-th-that's all folks.
