The garden is cleaned up and the foliage has changed colours. The roses are still blooming though!
The view of what will be the white flowering garden next year.
The Sedum kamtschaticum has started to change colour on the rock walls.
I should of zoomed in on this shot but I wanted to get as much of the grasses as I could. Shows you how tall they got in the end.
The yellow mums are still blooming and the Sedum here is also showing up red against the turquoise blue of the new pot.
I love how these grasses stand out so white with the blue of the spruce. They actually add a neat sound element in a gentle breeze.
Which is an issue. They froze last year and were cut back yet bloomed in late spring. This year they seemed okay and then a late frost killed off there emerging buds and they grew from the crown again. There foliage grew very well but they never bloomed again this year. I'm wondering if this is not the best positioning for them. The glass end of the house is the south end. Anyone with experience with growing Hydrangea's please advise. I had thought of moving some large Yucca's there if they would be better suited.
I'm going to go ahead and cut the grasses in this area down as they can't be seen from the house anyways and it will help cut down on the spring time work. I had thought of putting in a pergola here and then have Wisteria growing up it. A project now left for spring if it is to happen.
My prayers go out to all the people who have lost so much. It certainly has made me stop and be thankful for the many blessings in my life.
Thanks for stopping by.
