The rabbit watches over the placement of plants for a ground cover garden around the locust tree. Up by the patio, this garden will be calm, serene, a sea of greens to rest my weary eyes on after a hard day of work.
Won’t that be nice?
The garden designer and her digging guy will be planting that garden today along with some other new borders. Details to follow.
I wonder what the garden designer would think if I added just a few bulbs in there this fall?
I would choose quiet plants like these grape hyacinths.
These all need to be moved anyway as they are “oddly planted” out where a new raspberry patch will be. I’m going to assume they can be moved “in the green” and will probably dig them up and plant them somewhere this weekend. Maybe not in the ground cover garden, but somewhere.
“Oddly planted” seems to be a theme around my garden. I’m telling you all, right now, when you have a design that is followed when planting, it is a whole lot different, and better, than when you just waltz around the garden and plop plants in any empty spot.
By the way, speaking of oddly planted, I did identify my mystery flower, as noted on the previous post.
Closed up on a cloudy day, it is clear now it IS a tulip, Tulipa sylvestris. And I want more of them!
