le jardin est fini!
We just got back from a glorious week at the beach but before we went I spent a week working on my garden. Remember the inspiration garden? First I had to weed the darn thing and it was quite full. Once the weeding was done I planted a few perennials – two rose bushes (with orange flowers, normally I do not like roses – not a fan of plants that can draw blood – but the color of these blooms were spectacular), the peppermint hydrangea and a liatris spicata. Then with the help of my husband we laid down a combination of burlap and newspaper to hinder the weeds then topped it with another combination of cocoa shell mulch and peat or sphagnum moss. A river of pebbles runs through it.
Here are a couple before shots, after weeding but before mulching.
And, drum roll please…
I love how it came out. I have a few more things to add – driftwood collected on our vacation, a Baltimore Oriole feeder and a couple wind chimes that the kids made. Best of all, I can admire it right here from my computer chair.
