Take a Gander at the New Garden "Wayback!"


Looks like there will be quite an area of sunlight in the backyard hosta bed next Spring.  That's okay.  I have a couple of bushes that I recently dug, one of which ('Blue Muffin' viburnum) will probably be planted in the left foreground  somewhere.  For now, I'll just sink the pot and plant it next Spring.

There's a sale at a local nursery, so perhaps I'll be able to pick up a couple or three more bushes to place here in there "out there."  :-)

Everything that is in pots right now will be sunk in the ground in their pots, awaiting their final planting next Spring.  It's a technique that works well. 

Wouldn't it be nice to have 3 or 4  hakonechloa out there... perhaps a row on the right side (front)?
I have two mukdenia that will probably do well in the area where that lone back hosta is standing (that will be moved next Spring).    Quite a few things should do well in that back (front) bed.  ;-)

So, all is not lost.

Now... if I could just find an inspired person to build a CUTE little garden shed that could double part time as a playhouse for grandchildren when they visit....  On the list for 2013?

Happy Fall to each of you from someone just a Little less shady... lol

I think that you could have a really lovely forest glade planting. Once you get those shrubs in, you could have some transition plantings around the circumference, and some nice groundcovers underneath.

Plus, you won't have to bring that stool out with you, you have some stump seats for sitting and pondering. :)

Oh, I can see the wonderful plans you are making... will make the winter fly by.

Hi, Northern, Whatever goes out there must be very low maintenance... But it will be fun to plan! The stumps will be very hand! :-)

Rosemary, I'll take any of your input! :-)
